FF Locker Room:
1.20 Chicago Bears Kyle Long, G, Oregon, (6-6, 313)
With the twentieth pick in the first round, the NFC North Chicago Bears have opted to select Kyle Long, guard from Oregon. Has the feet to be a decent left tackle, more of a project than anything. With great size and tremendous strength, he doesn’t have much of a resume, which is why he tried to return for another year. His eligibility was denied though, so his NFL family tree continues on today.
The Bears Long is the son of Hall of Famer, Howie Long. Excellent at run-blocking and protecting his quarterback, his speed and natural ability should help him become a very good player for Chicago. How quickly that comes along though is really up to how fast Long gets accustomed to the speed of the NFL.
