There is little doubt Kyle Long can hold his own on the NFL level, even with just five career starts at Oregon. The Bears can live with Long's rookie mistakes because his upside is so great. Long will start all 16 games at right guard for the Bears in 2013, then move outside to right tackle next offseason, swapping positions with fellow rookie Jordan Mills, who also has experience lining up at guard at the collegiate level. -- Jeff Dickerson
