Former Cavalier defensive end Chris Long has spent the last month acclimating himself with his new team, the St. Louis Rams. Long went to the Rams with the second pick in the NFL Draft back on April 26, and is starting to learn the play-book and schemes of his new squad.

The University of Virginia and virginiasportstv.com recently caught up with Long when he returned to Charlottesville, and got his thoughts on how his first month is going. Long has completed both rookie camp and mini camp, and will spend the next several weeks doing various team activities before the start of training camp in July.

The former Cavalier wears number 72 with his new team, as veteran Leonard Little already has his college number 91. Little is a man who has taken Long under his wing to help him adjust to the NFL style of play.
