Jake Long has signed with the Dolphins and that officially makes him the #1 overall pick.
HAHA. Wow. #1 overall pick for what some scouts think is a future RT? That sucks. Jake Long is going to be a probable decent LT and maybe a great RT, but now he is going to have that #1 overall pci kthing hanging on him as a lineman, and that is going to be tough.
Bill Parcells doesn’t surprise me. He builds a football team in the classic manner, starting with the line, then skill positions, then a veteran QB until he finds a young guy to take over as the team peaks.
The one good thing is, it puts us one pick closer to getting Chris Long. I have no doubt Chris Long is #1 on our board. Its my guess that Kiffin likes him AND Davis likes him, he is ideal fit and fills the biggest hole on the defensive line. He will have to slip by STL and ATL, but I am not so sure that isn’t possible now with one or both wanting to trade down. If one passes and another drops down, Chris Long may fall into our laps.
If Chris Long is gone, I am sticking with my Gholston/McFadden prediction. If both are there, its a toss up for me, if one or the other is gone, then obviously we pick the remaining one.
The draft is so close I can TASTE it.
