http://www.mlive.com/sports/flint/in...-best_nfl.htmlMiami Dolphins offensive tackle Jake Long, a Lapeer East graduate, is the NFL’s 29th-best player according to Pete Prisco of CBSsports.com.
The web site’s senior writer ranked the league’s top 50 players and Long, who made the Pro Bowl in both of his first two seasons in the league, is ranked third among tackles behind Denver’s Ryan Clady (13th) and Cleveland’s Joe Thomas (20th).
Long is also the top-ranked Miami player.
“He's a rock on the left side of the Miami line,” Prisco writes. “He's improved greatly as a run blocker, and he excels in pass protection. He had one bad game -- the opener against the Falcons — and then played at a high level in 2009.”
Long, who has started all 32 games the past two seasons, was named first-team All-Pro by the Sporting News and second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press last season.
Dude this love affair people have with Clady is ridiculous, especially when everyone knows that the he had a poor season last year. Also how the Hell is Marshall not ahead of Jake, I love Jake, but Marshall is a Top 3 WR. Guys our Dolphins are really underrated.
