    Has to go to DE Chris Long, Virginia. I realize it never will. I like Matt Ryan alot, but Chris Long has had as good a year at DE as humanly possible. He already has 10 sacks, 14 TFL and 7 PDs. Unreal.

    If he can fit as a 3-4 DE I would be happy if the Pats draft him. Great to have Howie's kid on the team. Howie's Boston roots come full circle.

    You really do have to love the pedigree. If we end up with a top 5 pick, I'm all for trading down (If Jake Long is off the board) and picking up Son of Howie.

    Long was absolutely unblockable vs. Wake Forest Saturday. He might be worth the #5 pick, although that could create a numbers problem for us.

    Long plays with awesome technique and incredible smarts play after play. He knows before the ball is snapped where the offense is going and how he is going to be blocked.
    I think I saw him on Special teams early in the game.

    I can't imagine this guy is not HIGH on BB's radar.
