Kiper Ponders Reunion With Oregon OL
"I think you look at the offensive line, particularly right tackle," Kiper said on a conference call Wednesday. "If it's Menelik Watson from Florida State or Kyle Long from Oregon. Kyle Long can play right tackle, he can play left tackle, he can play guard and he played for Chip Kelly at Oregon. So I think Kyle Long, if he's still there, would be a viable option for the Philadelphia Eagles. Coaches like familiarity, familiar players, obviously Kyle Long's got a ton of versatility. He's got the bloodlines, his father Howie and his brother Chris, so he would have to be in discussion along with Manelik Wetson from Florida State."

“I love the kid. Great character, just tremendously likeable. Just comes into a room and you have to root for this kid,” Kiper, the longtime ESPN draft analyst, said Wednesday in a conference call. “The likeability, the ‘it factor’ is there with him, from that standpoint. Big at 6-5, 237. Fast. That means he can run the read option and run it pretty effectively. Tough to bring down when he does run the football. He can pick up some yards with his legs and beat you with his legs and pick up first downs and keep drives alive.”

As for the read-option on offense and a 3-4 base defense, he has refused to commit publicly. All of that changes on Tuesday, when the new coach and almost entirely new staff will begin a three-day minicamp that only new head coaches are allowed to conduct before the NFL Draft, which begins on April 25.
