Scouting Report: David Long
School: West Virginia Position: Inside Linebacker Class: Junior Height: 5’11 Weight: 225 Projected Draft Round: 2-4
One of the most explosive players in the draft who excels at hard charging lanes in front of him. Tremendous “clogging” ability, and could be an upper tier NFL player if he finds the right system that allows him to do what he does best – contain gaps. Doesn’t thrive in coverage, and the system he lands will have a lot to say about his success at the next level. Projects as a move forward, run stopping inside linebacker in a 3-4, where his dependability at controlling gaps will allow others to make plays in coverage.
