Chris Long Most Intriguing Rookie

Thats right the USAtoday Game On bloggers name Chris Long most intriguing rookie going into the 2008 NFL season. I would like you to note that Glenn Dorsey is not mentioned in this article. I am still very pleased that the St. Louis Rams drafted Chris Long with the 2nd pick in the 2008 NFL draft. Just remember that Mario Williams of the Houston Texans, taken ahead of Reggie Bush only had 4.5 sacks in 2006 and was called a bust by many. Enter 2007 and Mario started to dominate games and finished the season with 14 sacks. I am not saying Chris Long will ever have similar numbers, but so far he has only been through one week of practice so please hold judgment until you at least see him play in a game. I also believe he is a can’t miss player.

Five intriguing draft picks to watch for this NFL season.

1. Chris Long, DE, Virginia (St. Louis): The No. 2 overall draft pick is a 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive end. The son of Hall of Famer Howie Long was one of the most touted players coming out this year. He has long arms and is strong and quick. Twin that with his upbringing and he has been stamped the “can’t miss” draft pick. No one likes to hear that but Long is expected to be one of those special ones who makes it big.
