Bears Snag Oregon OG Kyle Long With 20th Overall Pick

kyle-long

The Bears passed on Manti Te’o in the first round of the NFL Draft, and instead went with the son of a Hall of Fame player, that being Oregon OG Kyle Long.

Kyle is the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long and current Rams end Chris Long is making his name on the offensive line for the Ducks.

The two-sport star in high school enrolled at Florida State to play baseball (he was a 23rd round pick of the White Sox in 2008), but struggles there caused him to regroup at home for a while before attending Saddleback Junior College.

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.
