by the way, what is the deal with chris long? he's not even a starter? awful draft pick. i guess they could say the same about alex :(
No so much that, defensive tackles/ends take forever to develop (they have to bulk up to NFL form), so it takes about 3-4 years to determine whether they are busts or not (It took Warren Sapp and Reggie White at least 2-3 years before they each went to the Pro Bowl). We drafted Kentwan Balmer that same year and he isn't even a solidified starter yet (but a rotation player).
But yeah, from what I've seen thus far Chris Long does suck, he's just too undersized to be a dominant pass-rusher in the sort of D spagz is running down there.
