For a 3rd round pick like Long to not have made the starting lineup in 2 full years is a bit concerning. I think he's an outside corner and doesn't have the quickness to play nickel. I'd bet we would play Burgess there over Long if those were our options. Long would fill in on the outside in case of injury, but I still would feel more comfortable adding a CB early.It's possible the Rams agree depends on what they think of Long and maybe Burgess. And as I said I am prepared either way for that pick.
The strength of our D is the secondary and DL so we can't allow ourselves to have a hole in either. Which is why I would agree we need to add another Edge too. Right now I think Hollins is penciled in across from Floyd but one more solid pass rusher is needed. Wouldn't be mad at a stud ILB if he's there early though as long as we grab a center, edge, and CB also in the first 4 rounds.
