San Diego State - Aztecs
Jerome Long - #94 - DE-DT
|Hometown:||Los Osos, CA|
Engaged. Earned all-league honors as a lineman and tight end during his California prep days and also participated in wrestling and track and field. Saw action in 11 games as a true freshman in 2008, making seven starts at defensive tackle and recording 37 tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack. Was limited against Notre Dame and did not play against San Jose State due to a sprained right ankle. Posted 23-1 1/2-1 1/2 in 12 contests as a reserve in ’09. Appeared in all 13 games in ’10 — starting the first three and last seven contests at DT — and registered 29-6-1 1/2 with a blocked field goal against Colorado State and recovered a fumble in the end zone against TCU. Started all 13 games at DT in ’11 and tallied 73-8-5 with a forced fumble.Summary:
Big lineman who played tackle in a 3-3-5 scheme in college, but offers versatility to play inside a 4-3 or be tried as a 3-4 five-technique given his ability to stack the run. Is not an explosive athlete and needs to get stronger, but could fend for a roster spot.
