Highlights of Bengals second-round pick Jake Fisher

One day after drafting Texas A&M Cedric Ogbeuhi in the first round, the Cincinnati Bengals added Oregon tackle Jake Fisher in Friday's second round.

Fisher's selection marks the first time the Bengals have drafted the same position with their first two picks since 2005 when they took linebackers David Pollack and Odell Thurman, although Pollack came out of college as a defensive end. Prior to that, the last time it happened was 1998 when the team drafted linebackers Takeo Spikes and Brian Simmons four picks apart in the first round.

The Bengals have never taken tackles back to back with their first two picks, and the only other time in franchise history they took offensive lineman with their two selections was in 1971 when they grabbed tackle Vernon Holland then guard Stephen Lawson.

Here's a look at some of Fisher's highlights:
