Dolphins Sign Jake Long To Multi-Year Contract

April 22, 2008

The Miami Dolphins today signed former University of Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long to a multi-year contract, making Long the top pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, which will be held this Saturday and Sunday. This year marked the first time the Dolphins have had the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft.

Long, the Wolverines’ starting left tackle each of the last two years, was the Big Ten Conference Offensive Lineman of the Year the past two seasons, the first player in school history to earn this award in consecutive seasons and just the fourth player in conference history to achieve the feat. As a senior, he was a consensus first-team All-America selection, while finishing second in the balloting for both the Lombardi Award and the Outland Trophy. A two-year team captain, Long played in 43 games in his collegiate career, starting 40 of them. Of his 40 starts, 26 came at left tackle while 14 were on the right side. He opened 10 contests at right tackle in his redshirt freshman season of 2004.

The 22-year old Long attended Lapeer (Mich.) East High School where he played offensive tackle and fullback. He also was a first baseman on the school’s baseball team and a center on the basketball squad. He was born on May 9, 1985.
Well, that's that.

Yeah, no kidding... I wonder what's going to happen to the Raiders after the passing of Al.

They don't even know if that kid projects as an actual NFL Left Tackle. Shit, he might be playing Right Guard in three years.

I hope it pans out for Miami, but I'd have taken V Gholston to bookend the LB corps opposite J Taylor. That's just me though.

Late.

They say the Kid might be the next Orlando Pace...and if that is true...then great pick...

Rams + Orlando Pace = best show on the turf...

I didn't expect you to be down on Jake "Pilliar of our Defense" Long at #1...if anyone I figured you'd understand this pick the most.

I seem to remember some concerns about Thomas and how good he'd be at the next level as well...how his surgically repaired ACL would hold up...some doubt he could handle the speed rushers...questions about footwork...but overall it seems to have worked out just fine for Cleveland.

I think Jake's has been overanalyzed a bit really...only 1 sack and 1 penalty his Sr year...and I'm pretty sure he only had 1 sack his Jr year as well. The guy has been consistently good in the same conference that Joe Thomas came from. Yes...he does have to work on his technique when going against speed rushers...Jake even admitted this himself in his press conference today. I'm feeling confident he'll be working his ass off to get better...with the type of coaches that are on that team and the type of player he's been thus far I just can't see him doing all that bad.

He may also be a victim of smokescreens. Not trying to sound like Boston all of a sudden...but with the Chiefs and Falcons both coveting him there's a good chance they could've put out such a smokescreen to try to get him to slip. Not saying that's fact or anything...but its not totally unheard of either.

In all honesty it was the best move for Miami. Vernon Carey really is just a right tackle so LT was by far the biggest need. If by chance Jake bombs at LT we can let Vernon walk and move him over to RT.

If that's worst case scenario I'll gladly take it.

We wont know anything until the games start being played...and I will not be suprised or worried if he struggles some in the beginning...but I do expect him to be a very good player and more then likely an anchor on the line for the next 10-12 years.

Gholston would've been replacing JT...not getting paired with him. I fully expect JT to be traded by the end of the weekend. If by some chance he isn't they'll probably hold onto him until the trade deadline is almost up and then get maximum value out of him.

I'm always down for picking up a good offensive lineman...

It's just that I've heard too many things about Jake Long moving to right tackle, about him possibly not being a lock...

For that pick and certainly for that money, if I were a GM, I'd want a lock...

...but there is no lock in the NFL.

I'm probably being too picky. Honestly a good line will boost the running and passing game...you see what it did for Cleveland last year.

It's just that when I hear "possibly move to Right Tackle..." I get a little edgy.

But he's a large gentleman who apparently has all the tools. Hey...he may turn out to be better than Joe Thomas. Who knows.
