    C. Long, will be more like?

    Can he be a Kevin Greene or will he be a Grant Winstrom.

    I agree, either work for me. But I have a feeling Chris is going to be wearing a Fins uniform in 08.

    He's much more like Greene than Wistrom. Greene played in both a 2-pt. AND 3-pt. stance......exactly like what is expected from Long. Wistrom was purely a 4-3 End.

    Re: C. Long, will be more like?

    I think he'll be more similar to Wistrom (only better) than to Greene. Greene played primarily OLB and that's where his sacks came from. Will Long really be playing OLB if the Rams take him?

    That is a good point, but he might be better in a 3-4 playing OLB. Thats all he did at his pro day.

    yeah i saw that too [pro day]. Well dont we play some 3-4? it'd we'd need more help from him at DE tho. Also, some scouts compare him to patrick kerney, and he turned out great..

    Hopefully it won't matter because I like Gholston more and hope he is the pick.

    It's all he did at his pro day because everyone already knew he could play from the ground. They wanted to see how he did standing up. For three years he played 3-4 end and then played 4-3 end for one year. For the most part he never played standing in college.

    Long can play three positions. DE in a 4-3, which is where we'd play him. OLB in a 3-4, though that would be the biggest stretch because he'll have to learn how to cover. And finally, DE in a one gap 3-4. I say one gap, because there's no reason to stick him in a two gap system that will waste so much of his talents. He'll do great in it, but he won't reach full potential. In a one gap system he can still be great as he'll only be responsible for taking on one blocker for the most part and will still be responsible for attacking the QB.

    Re: C. Long, will be more like?

    he would be more like a Grant winstrom...4-3 DE with a high motor. Comparisons to V. Gholston are more like Lawrence Taylor/ julius Peppers....Who do you spend the number 2 draft on....Grant Winstom...or LT.....seems obvious to me....Get on the VG bandwagon now.....i want to win...not just give a good effort.

    Re: C. Long, will be more like?

    Just curious, 1906, but what happens when Gholston doesn't feel like playing a game? Long will be fighting hard on every down they let him play. Will Gholston? He hasn't proved it so far. I want to win too, but there's always more to it than just raw athletic ability.
