As requested here's a spotlight on Oregon offensive lineman Kyle Long.

Being the son of a former NFL monster and the brother of a current NFL star sounds like it could be a tough act to follow, but Kyle Long holds his own. At 6'7 310 pounds, he's considerably light footed for his enormous size. He started his college career at Saddleback CC, then transferring to Oregon before the 2012 season.

According to nfldraftscout.com his projected 40 time is somewhere between 4.89 and 5.19, ridiculously fast for a 6'7 lineman.

Long is more of a finesse player, as opposed to the maulers that former OC Mike Tice preferred. He isn't technically sound, but what he lacks in that area, he makes up for with his foot quickness and his leg strength. He does a good job at keeping his feet below him and his shoulders square. Long played LG and LT in the senior bowl, looking very solid at both spots, which is good because versatility is a plus.

In all I grade Long as my 50th overall prospect and a great pick if he makes it to the Bears in the 2nd round.

I couldn't find any videos Hilighting Long, or any videos of Oregon's offense this year, so here's an interview with Chip Kelly, where he talks a little about Kyle Long
