Here is my write-up from Long after watching his tape (which was fantastic):
Long is one of the best press-man cornerbacks in this draft class. He’s physical, does a great job pressing at the line of scrimmage, has great football intelligence, is sticky in coverage, and does a good job staying on a receivers hip. He turns his head and plays the ball when in coverage. Decent tackler.
Long also tested as an elite athlete at the NFL Scouting Combine when he destroyed the short shuttle and 3-cone drills. Not only that, but Long visited the Rams on a pre-draft visit.
