Here's a look at some of the latest from leading draft experts regarding Kyle Long.
Peter King, Sports Illustrated: "Hearing more and more good things about Oregon tackle Kyle Long -- son of Howie, brother of Chris, and former 95-mph-fastball-thrower. Mayock has him 29th, and one scouting boss told me Friday Long will go in the first round because he's strong enough to be a move-the-pile guard and quick enough to deflect edge rushers."
NFL.com: "Looks the part of an NFL lineman. Has nice height and long, thick arms, which he can extend to keep defenders at bay in pass protection (sometimes using one hand to ward off his man while on the move). Even as a one-and-done contributor for the Ducks on the line, Long’s combination of size and athleticism won’t be ignored by NFL scouts, who will see his great potential as a starting guard or tackle."
Jon Dove, Bleacher Report: "Long’s struggles keeping a low pad level really hinders his versatility. His 6’6” frame doesn’t help this situation either. He’ll really struggle if he’s asked to move inside to play guard. The ideal course of action would be to have him start out at right tackle, and slowly evaluate if he has the foot speed to move to the left side."
Rob Rang, CBS Sports: "Jason Peters' impressive combination of size and athleticism gave him a shot at the NFL despite having no experience as an offensive lineman. Long is similarly large and athletic but has two years head start on Peters and, of course, has his famous family to help him get an opportunity in the league. A team willing to gamble on his significant upside could win big."
