Podcast: Wise sees Long as left tackle
Veteran NFL offensive line coach Tony Wise, who worked with Chicago Bears first-round pick Kyle Long, said Friday he thinks Long should be a starting left tackle in the NFL.
"After having worked with him, if he's coming to the team I'm on, he's going to left tackle immediately," Wise said on "The Carmen & Jurko Show" on ESPN 1000. "There's not many guys that are 6-7 with that kind of reach that can change direction and turn the corner the way this guy can. Now if he can't make it at left tackle, he's going to right tackle immediately after that. He'll have a career at right tackle.
"This guy's an athlete."
