BIO: Full-time starter the past three seasons who posted 34/12.5/4.5 in nine games last year. Junior totals included 46/15/7.5 after 41/15.5/10.5 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Hard-working pass rusher with marginal size/speed numbers. Quick off the snap, fast off the edge and immediately alters his angle of attack. Plays with good pad level and makes plays down the line of scrimmage. Solid hand technician with an array of moves.
NEGATIVES: Easily ridden from his angle of attack by opposing blockers and is a liability in run defense. Has a long history of injury concerns.
ANALYSIS: An overachieving prospect who gets the most from his tools, Long could find a home as a situational pass rusher in a conventional defense.
