Chris Long was selected second overall in Saturday's NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams. He becomes just the fifth son of an NFL Hall of Famer to be drafted. Long goes to a Rams team that finished 3-13 in 2007, and that is in desperate need of defensive line help.

Another former Cavalier to go pro today was offensive tackle Branden Albert. He went to the Kansas City Chiefs with the 15th overall pick. Albert was widely regarded as the top interior offensive lineman in the draft.
