Chris Long will find out his NFL future on Saturday, as the 2008 NFL Draft begins at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Our J.W. Stehle made the trip to the Big Apple, and was able to sit down with Long on the eve of the big day.
The former Cavalier is expected to go to either the St. Louis Rams with the number two pick, or to the Oakland Raiders at number four. Both are in need of defensive line help, and Long, along with LSU's Glenn Dorsey and Ohio State's Vernon Gholston, could provide the help they need.
Long would provide a huge boost to any NFL team. In 2007, he capped off his collegiate career by tallying 14 sacks and 19 tackles for loss, en route to earning ACC Defensive Player of the Year honors. Long's former teammate, Branden Albert, is also expected to be a high selection, as he could go as high as fifth to Kansas City.
