Travis Long's most attractive quality as a pro prospect is his tremendous versatility. At Washington State, he operated in both the 4-3 and 3-4 defensive schemes, and perhaps more impressively, he played as a down defensive end, standing outside linebacker and as an interior linebacker.
Not only did Long line up in various positions in college, but he was also effective in all of them.
His main function is as a pass-rusher, which he did successfully in college from both a down and standing position.
Long's production at Washington State is impossible to refute. He was a four-year letterman, accumulating 201 tackles (42 for loss) and 20.5 sacks over his career.
His most likely NFL fit will be as a pass-rushing OLB in a 3-4 or as a down defensive end in a 4-3, but as evidenced in the following clips from his game against BYU, Long is competent at a plethora of defensive positions.
