Bears second-year right guard Kyle Long has finished up his second season with the Bears and he is one of the team bright spots in a gloomy season. The 60-foot-6 313 pound Long is the only Bear nominated to the Pro Bowl this season--his second year in a row he was honored. He has been also named second-team All-Pro as voted on by the Associated Press.
Long is a positive teammate. He's said that since he's been with the Bears, he's just tried to be the best teammate he could be and soak up the knowledge he needs to play the game.
Coming into the pros, he was scouted positively for his size and he could extend well for pass protection. Long good upper body strength is combined with good leg strength and flexibility. Solid footwork and a good attitude--Long plays well as a teammate. The only things that Long has needed is more football experience as he spent a lot of his early college days in baseball and only played one year of major college football.
