I watched Chris Long play every Saturday and he is the best college football player I've seen. He is relentless, eats up blockers, uses his hands better than any DE I've seen at the college level, forces teams to gameplan against him, got double teamed almost every single play because he was so much better than anyone else Virginia had on D, and still put up sick stats. For those who say he would be better in a 3-4, I say you are dead wrong. I guess that comes because he played in Groh's 3-4 and because the 'experts' say he might be suited to that defense. I think he was misused a lot of time as a 2-gap player and that if he could just take the edge he would be an absolute monster. The guy is 275 lbs, runs a 4.75, is built like a friggin' truck, and is extremely quick off the ball when given the opportunity to rush the passer. I hope he gets to play in a 4-3 in the NFL because he will dominate. He's not a 'tweener' he is a classic DE and I only wish he could wear burgundy and gold.

Not even a contest, Chris Long by a mile and a half.

I have to agree, I was 6 rows from the field when he rocked the Terps this year. He has amazing talent and has eaten, breathed and slept football since he was in the womb. His football IQ is off the charts. This thoroughbred has a great bloodline, plus Howie would give us more coverage on sundays which is always nice.

Re: If The Redskins Had the First Overall Pick...

I am going to reiterate Chris Long. There are great college football players and there are GREAT college football players. This guy, every single time I saw him play, was in on every play. UVa needed a big D play and voila there was Chris Long. Quite seriously if he had been on a decent team that challenged for a championship he would have been a Heisman canidate. Every single game he played he was the best player on the field. I don't know if I can accurately convey how good he is. I just can't imagine he isn't going to be just as dominant at the next level.

Re: If The Redskins Had the First Overall Pick...

Jake Long. I think it's more than fair to say that if J.Long hadn't gone first, he would have gone in the top 5. Since 1995, these eight tackles have been taken in the top 5:

Joe Thomas, Levi Brown, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Robert Gallery, Jordan Gross, Mike Williams, Chris Samuels, Orlando Pace, Tony Boseli.

While you run this risk of getting a Mike Williams, there is a good chance that your getting a perenial pro-bowl or all-pro player if you take a tackle who is considered to be worthy of a top 5 pick.

Re: If The Redskins Had the First Overall Pick...

Glenn Dorsey. It's easier to generate an outside rush without elite DEs than to generate an inside rush without an elite DT. Moreover, if I had to choose between generating an outside rush or an inside rush, I'd take the inside rush every day of the week. Jake Long would be nice, but I think we have bigger needs along the Dline.

Please note that this is strictly for the Redskins, so consider what you think the team's needs are and whether you think they should go for need or best player available (or the top need might happen to also be the best player).

And you can't trade the pick.
If they had the pick they should draft Dorsey. When healthy, he's the best player IMO. But we're talking about Snyeratto and we know they are gung ho on wr's. So they'd probably take Devin Thomas.
