Bears selected Oregon OL Kyle Long with the No. 20 overall pick.
Long (6-6, 313) is the son of Howie and brother of Chris. Kyle only started 11 games for the Ducks after playing baseball at Florida State and spending the 2010 and 2011 seasons at Saddleback Community College as a defensive and offensive lineman. Ideally suited to left guard, Long has relatively short arms (33 3/8") but is arguably the second most athletic interior offensive lineman in this draft, behind Jonathan Cooper. Long ran 4.94 at the Combine with a 1.68 ten-yard split and 28-inch vertical. Many suggested Long would be a second-round pick due to his inexperience at the position, but offensive lineman are in high demand during the first-round. Due to his natural athleticism and aggression, Long fits a variety of spots along the line. Thu, Apr 25, 2013 10:31:00 PM

Oregon G Kyle Long will go in the first-round, according to one "scouting boss" Si's Peter King spoke with.

The scouting exec noted Long is "strong enough to be a move-the-pile guard and quick enough to deflect edge rushers." Long is very new to the position, but his NFL bloodlines likely played a role in his natural aggression and athleticism. We still expect a second-round selection for the son of Howie.

Oregon OL Kyle Long visited the Rams on Monday.

Long's brother, Chris, is a member of the Rams, so the connection can be made between the two parties along with the team's need of offensive linemen. The former baseball player will be an interesting case study, since he only has one year of starting experience but showed very natural aggression and mobility in 2012.

Oregon OL Kyle Long visited the Cleveland Browns, according to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot.

Long is a versatile offensive lineman that has the ability to play tackle or guard. He moves well and is very aggressive attacking defensive lineman, which will appeal to teams. There's a chance that he goes higher than many have said, potentially going in the very early portion of the second-round. He's also visited the St. Louis Rams recently.

Oregon OL Kyle Long has a visit scheduled with the Rams.

Long is the younger brother of Rams defensive end Chris. The team could use some young talent on their offensive line, and Long can likely play left tackle or either guard spot. Due to his natural aggression and movement skills, we expect him to be selected in the second-round.

Oregon OL Kyle Long is generating "a lot of buzz over the last few weeks," according to NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah.

"I keep hearing his name from personnel buddies," Jeremiah tweeted. Our own Josh Norris ranked Long at No. 50 overall in his latest big board. Although the Oregon product spent a short amount of time at the FBS level, Long flashed natural aggression and athleticism at left tackle and guard.

Oregon G Kyle Long is training in MMA and with Jay Glazer prior to April's draft.

Long's football career is somewhat short after choosing to focus on baseball out of high school. He only has around 11 starts, but Long's movement skills and aggressiveness come very natural. He missed a good portion of the Senior Bowl due to illness, but Long could be a late second- to third-round pick.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay ranks Oregon G Kyle Long as his 29th overall prospect.

"Long is inexperienced, but his physical tools are as good as those of any other lineman in the class," McShay writes. "He needs to improve his awareness and instincts, but that should come with more reps." Expect the former baseball player turned offensive lineman to see snaps at both guard and tackle in the future.

After earning a lot of praise during his short time with Oregon, G Kyle Long's evaluation is starting to settle in the third-round, according to Draft insider Tony Pauline.

Pauline writes that Long's "stock" is headed in the wrong direction and scouts have realized it may take him some time to be NFL ready. The process might not be as quick as some expected prior to Senior Bowl week. Long missed two days of practice due to an illness.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl tweeted that it "wouldn't surprise" him if Oregon's Kyle Long is one of the top OL from this class in three years.

Weidl adds that Long is "raw and needs coaching," but he would "put Long's physical skill set near the top in this years' OL class." It didn't stop there, as Weidl went on to say Long has a "great frame with natural feet and power Heavy handed joker." Expect Howie's son to be a top-50 selection.

Oregon senior G Kyle Long has reportedly been denied an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA, according to beat writer Rob Moseley.

This may seem like small news, but those around the NFL have touted Long all year for his ability to pick up the position in a short amount of time. Long took a unique path to Oregon, starting as a baseball player at Florida State then running into academic and off field issues at a junior college. However, as a starter, Long flashed excellent ability, but NFL teams will need to weigh how early they can take an inexperienced player with upside during April's draft.

Oregon senior G Kyle Long is still waiting to hear from the NCAA regarding his hardship waiver in the hopes of gaining an extra year of eligibility.

"I have no clue," he said, "where I’m going to be in a month’s time." Long began his career at Florida State in 2008 as a baseball player, then left the school after falling behind academically. The senior "applied for a medical hardship on the basis of chemical dependency, which led to his struggles at Florida State and a DUI arrest shortly after leaving school." Scouts have been very impressed with the inexperienced offensive lineman.

Oregon senior OL Kyle Long "figures to be selected somewhere in the middle" of the second-round, according to SI's Tony Pauline.

It has been quite a rise for Long, who has transferred from multiple programs and has found a home with the Ducks. He has played both tackle and guard, and Scouts are apparently enamored with his potential. Still, the middle of the second-round is quite high for a player with a limited number of starts. Long may even return for a sixth season if granted eligibility.
