Kiko .... meh. We'll just have to agree to disagree on his evaluation. I think he's a bust in the NFL.
Just because Long isn't ready to contribute right now shouldn't deter you from drafting him. You have to always look and think long term. If you think a guy can be a great player 2 yrs down the line, you draft him. If you don't,someone else will and your team will have to compete against that guy.
