Mandatory Credit: Jake Roth-USA TODAY SportsEric Fisher has impressed the scouts at the Senior Bowl and he is creating a lot of buzz. He has been dominating in practice and has looked the part during his weigh-ins. His stock is on the rise this week and seems to keep getting higher and higher as each day passes.

Fisher had been mocked to the Chargers with the 11th pick in the draft by a few experts, but with his performance this weekend, he could be moving to Top 10 territory. It seems that there are a ton of teams in the league that need a left tackle, so hoping that Fisher lasts till the 11th pick might be wishful thinking.

Luke Joeckel will likely be the top left tackle selected in the April draft, but Fisher is giving him a run for his money. If Fisher keeps up his impressive play, teams will surely trade their way into the top 10 to try and select him before the Chargers do.

He has been showing great athleticism for his size at practice and he has been man handling most of the competition. With Fisher rising out of reach, should the Chargers now target Lane Johnson of Oklahoma?
