  • Jake Long: combine stud?

    Okay so they haven't done the quickness/footwork workouts yet and that is where Joe Thomas stood out.

    But word is Long just had immense size where it really mattered (hands/arms). Also put up 37 reps with the longest arms in the draft and that is just absolutely amazing. Usually it is a really big, bulky guy that does this but I'm just blown away.

    He hasn't earned that extra half of a star yet to make him an elite pick. I need to see how he checks out athleticically. If he looks close to Joe Thomas last year I will make him a very rare 5 star elite prospect.

    Congrats to Wisconsin. Even more congrats to UK haters.

    I agree this dude is nuts! He didn't look 315 with his shirt off. He has a great body, I don't think he's as good of a prospect as Thomas but he's closer to Thomas than Levi Brown and could be a rookie pro bowler as a rook if hes a RT. I think he could be a great LT also though.

      Well he was 6'6 315 we all knew this. See my blog his stock shouldn't go up if you already know something about a guy and he lives up to expectations.

      However hands/arms measurements is a lot tougher to judge exactly than height/weight.

            I don't think he'll go top 3. He is probably top 3 talent though.

              I'm wondering why that Denver scout was so close and intent on Long's presses. It's not like he has any chance to fall to #12.

                Denver could trade up.

                        Meh, jus a thought. Don't matter. Hey Matt, You think Glenn Dorsey will fall in the draft since he is a 4-3 Lineman?

                          I think Dorsey is a linemen. Not just limited to the 4-3. However you don't draft nose tackles unless they are fabulously elite this high in the draft.

                          Rams know what they want defensively and I think they have their system fit the personell and move back to the 4-3 for Dorsey's best fit. Then you move Carriker outside at LDE where he is more natural.

                              I don't think he is a "4-3" linemen I just don't think you draft nose tackles this high in the draft unless they are jaw dropping and perfect.

                              Dorsey doesn't fall at the very worst Atlanta takes him at #3.
