The Cincinnati Bengals select Jake Fisher, offensive tackle out of Oregon at pick 53. Jake Fisher was projected to possibly go a few picks higher so the Bengals got lucky. This is the second pick offensive line pick because in the first round the Bengals selected Cedric Ogbuehi, an offensive tackle out of Texas A&M. Andy Dalton was constantly under pressure and the offensive line did a poor job. Jake Fisher is a good pickup for that reason. 

The strength of Jake Fisher is that he's a good blocker. He understands how blocking works. he's able to make blocking adjustments well. Despite that, he's one of the most penalized in the offensive lineman class. He also is a little weak after sustaining a leg injury. That 2014 leg injury, caused him to miss some games and he's going to need to be able to add weight on.

Here's Jake Fisher's NFL Combine numbers: 40-yard dash: 5.01 seconds, Vertical: 32.5 inches, Bench press: 25 reps, Three-cone drill: 7.25, seconds, and 20-yard shuttle: 4.33 seconds.

This is a good pick for the Cincinnati Bengals. He's a versatile player who can play both guard spots. The Bengals may consider him switching to the tackle position. Overall, the combine numbers were very good for Fisher. With some coaching, he could be a Pro Bowler and help the Bengals get a playoff victory.
