Among the players that appeared in the video highlight package were Wake, current Dolphins quarterback
“I think the thing about him that makes him really good is that he’s a great run blocker and pass blocker,” said Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell. “He is exactly what teams are looking for at left tackle and he’s just huge.”
Other players weighing in on Long’s prowess were former New England Patriots guard Matt Light, Washington Redskins tackle Trent Williams and Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins. Light came up with the quote of the night to sum up Long.
“He’s a big mammal,” Light said. “I mean he’s just a large individual.”
There were highlights of last year’s Thanksgiving Day game at Dallas where Long matched up one-on-one with Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware and kept him off of Moore long enough for Moore to hit Marshall with a long touchdown pass.
Moore got the last word in and nobody will disagree.
“Knowing that he’s back there on the left side, it’s a good feeling,” Moore said.
