2013 NFL Draft rumors: Eric Fisher to be No. 1 pick; Lions talking trade with Raiders?

USA TODAY Sports

A rundown of the latest 2013 NFL Draft rumors.

As rumors continue to swirl about what certain teams will do in the 2013 NFL Draft, more and more uncertainty is being created with certain players. With Tavon Austin, for example, there have been rumors connecting him to various teams in the first half of the draft, making it tough to figure exactly where he will end up.

One situation that does seem to be cleared up is who will be the No. 1 overall pick. Based on various reports, it looks as though the Kansas City Chiefs are planning to take Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher.

This news means that Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel will be pushed down to No. 2 overall or perhaps even farther. Considering there's talk about the Lions trading up to get a top tackle, you wouldn't think Joeckel would make it beyond No. 5, but might Detroit actually prefer Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson?

Regardless of which tackle they would prefer, there are still plenty of rumors about the Lions trading up to make sure they get their top target. Tony Pauline says that he is continuing to hear about a potential deal involving the Oakland Raiders and the No. 3 overall pick, and the Lions and Arizona Cardinals are both apparently in the mix for a potential deal.

What could be even more interesting is what the Raiders do if they don't trade down. Jason La Canfora reports that Houston cornerback D.J. Hayden could go third overall, which would be absolutely shocking.
