I love the selection by the St. Louis Rams of Chris Long DE – Virginia with the second overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. The Rams really could not go wrong with this selection. They were sitting on Glenn Dorsey or Chris Long, or the possibility of trading down. I believe Chris Long is the correct choice here. With Leonard Little and James Hall as the starting DEs going into 08′ you have to be worried about injuries and production. Inside the Rams can get by with Adam Carriker, Clifton Ryan, LeRoy Glover and Claude Wroten. The Rams needed a legit pass rusher and Long is that guy. In addition to his ability the Rams will add football intangibles.
