[quote]STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES

He is a nasty mauler with aggressive hands and is the type of blocker who fights through the echo of the whistle and grinds on every snap. Long shows good quickness off the snap, can get to the second level and wastes little time attacking, but has stiff hips and lacks ideal flexibility when he gets out in space. Although he's not shy about engaging and getting feisty with his limbs, Long needs to do a better job staying balanced and latching on to control defenders. He isn't a household name, even in Big Ten country, but he might be the best interior blocker out of the Big Ten.
PLAYER OVERVIEW

After not seeing playing time as a freshman, he started every game as a sophomore and a junior, earning Second Team All-American honors in 2012.
Long ranked third on the team in career starts when he suffered a season-ending knee injury last October.

[quote]Draft Analysis
WHAT HE BRINGS
Long is coming off a season-ending knee injury, raising concerns about his durability, and he can get knocked off balance in pass protection, making this a reach. He does have a prototypical frame for a guard prospect, though, and he's an effective positional blocker who can wall off his assignments long enough to create a seam for the ball carrier.
HOW HE FITS
Washington wants to become more physical inside, and Long is a decent blocker who should fit perfectly in this zone scheme. A player like Long can significantly upgrade Washington's rushing attack.

He also seems to be pretty fast though I'm not sure if I would consider him big. He actually looks kind of skinny.

There was a time back in 2012 where I saw Omoregie Uzzi a guard for Georgia Tech at a supermarket in downtown Atlanta. The only reason I was able to learn his name came about because he was wearing GT Football sweatpants with his number on it so I pushed out other important information for the next hour to look up 77 for Georgia Tech when I got home. Turns out he was "only" 6'2 315 but seeing him down the aisle he seemed 6'5 330. Regardless anyone playing D1 football in the front 7 is likely going to seem big to anyone of average height, myself included (5'9).

Like the position chosen. Just concerned with the injuries this guy has suffered. Sounds like if he is healthy, he can be good. Just that health is a hard issue to deal with in the NFL.

I have a feeling this guy won't be expected to start right away.

Yeah, I agree. I think it pushes Chester out and forces Leribeye and Gettis to realize its their time to prove something or move along. He will probably sit a year looking over there shoulders trying to get time. If the young guards dont step up, then they will look for Long to push them out in a year.

Re: Pick 78 - Spencer Long - G - Nebraska
 
I'm willing to bet that if they haven't said it already (haven't really looked up the follow up reports yet from the FO) but I'm guessing that its going to be explained something like:

"In terms of talent he was one of the better players in the draft. Had it not been for the injury we think he would have been picked sooner."

I don't know, this kinda feels like the fatboy pick. I know they're very different but just don't like this one for some reason.
