http://www.weei.com/pages/268228.php Now that Al Groh, an NFL coach who ran the 3-4 with BB, and BB's good friend, and C. Long's father, a HOF defensive player, both believe that C. Long should play 3-4 OLB in the NFL, is there any real question? Howie also said he would like to see C. Long play for the Pats. The draft order is 1. Miami 2. St Louis 3. Atlanta 4. Oakland 5. KC 6. NYJets 7. Pats Miami may draft him #1, but would prefer to trade down. If they stay at #1, my guess would be M. Ryan. The reason I say Matt Ryan is that the BC Coach is considered a sleeper to be hired as HC for the Dolphins. He has long said that Ryan is like Hasselbeck, whom he coached with Seattle. Hasselbeck is a personal favorite of Parcells. The Parcells/Coughlin BC/Mara family/BC/Hasselbeck/Ron Wolfe (GB architect, Parcells confidante, and mentor to Jagozinski)/ Ryan connection tells me that Ryan is definitely on the Dolphins radar. While Parcells' supposed rule is not to draft Qbs high in the draft, he did select Bledsoe. St Louis desperately needs O-line help: Jake Long Atlanta needs either a Qb or a dynamic talent to energize the fan base, one with which the SEC fans are familar: McFadden Oakland was a sieve at D-Tackle, and the retirement of W. Sapp and the injury and free agency of Tommy Kelly leave a gaping hole in the D. Also, IMO Al Davis would be reluctant to draft Howie's son considering the tremendous pressure the kid would be under living up to the legend of his father in his father's uniform. I think Howie would make that known to Al Davis as not something he would want for his kid. IMO Oakland will take Dorsey or S. Ellis. KC is loaded at DE with Jared Allen and Tamba Hali. Allen will be franchised. KC desperately needs offensive talent. The offensive line is a problem. Clady or Otah seem logical. Also they may look at an elite young secondary player like K. Phillips (even though they have Page and Pollard) or either of the Jenkins boys to replace the aging Law and Surtain. But they are a real candidate to TRADE DOWN a few slots. The Jets will definitely draft C. Long if available. Otherwise they will trade down to acquire more picks, because they only have 4 in the whole draft after trading up twice last year for Revis and Harris. IMO if the Dolphins do not take C. Long at #1, the Patriots can get him by trading up to #5 with KC, ahead of the Jets. Such a trade would only cost the Pats the #7 overall plus their early 3rd rd pick, the one they acquired from Oakland. If that opportunity presented itself, I would definitely do that. From what I have seen of college football, Chris Long is playing at a completely different level than the other prospects. He is playing at an NFL level, but in college. It's pretty astounding. His physical talent is similar to McGinest, his intensity reminds me of Bruschi, his intelligence of Vrabel. He is like a composite of the classic Patriot Lbing corps. Personally I wonder if Long has been on the Pats radar since last year, and they were planning on accumulating the necessary draft picks to make a trade up for him when they basically passed on last year's draft and acquired multiple early picks in this one. The Spygate penalty has hurt their position but not irreparably.
