Matt Hayes is already calling Jake Long a bust, and that Duane Brown should have been the #1 pick.
Heh. I was wondering when we'd start seeing the "Long is a bust" articles.

Turning Leaf: Pick No. 1, right out of the box, has all the panache of pea soup. NFL guys say Long is the prototype left tackle, a player who can have a Tony Boselli-like career. I covered Tony Boselli way back when, and trust me, Jake Long is no Tony Boselli.

Hello, West Texas A&M: Did anyone else notice how every draft expert on the planet says Long needs to improve his pass blocking? You don't use the No. 1 overall pick on a mauler still developing as a pass blocker (see: Robert Gallery) -- especially when he's protecting the most important position on the field.

Bill Polian's perfect world: Duane Brown, Virginia Tech. Texans took him with the 26th overall pick. Former tight end, huge wingspan, very athletic, nasty attitude.
