Scouting Report
Assets: Excellent as a sacks technician and knows how to get into the opposing backfield. A hard worker and an intense performer with the physical tools and focus to dominate at the position. Really fights his way to get to the quarterback. Comes by his talent naturally (as a son of Hall of Famer Howie Long).
Flaws: Can be a bit one-dimensional as a sacks guy, and doesn't provide a lot in picking up the run or making plays dropping back against the pass. Lacks elite size and closing speed, and durability has been an issue later in his career.
Career Potential: Talented pass-rushing specialist.
