Originally I was interested in cutting Gross to free up room to pursue him, but he just can't stay healthy. I've become increasingly interested in seeing what Bruce Campbell can do, since he was originally projected as a top 10 pick and has shown great promise in spot duty; plus is young and could be built around if he pans out.

Long really isn't that good anymore (not to the level he was early in his career anyway) and if you are looking for someone to protect Newton, you might as well look in the draft for a guy like Lane Johnson. Long is more of a run blocker than he is pass protector and struggles against speed.

Great thing about Jake Long is that we could probably wait it out and get him for cheap, if we really wanted to go that route. Reports are coming in that the market for him is not going to be too hot, especially not at that price. Could be a great way to pick up an above average player.
