Last night was clearly not a great moment for Louisville basketball. However, a bright spot may be emerging for our can't-help-but-feel-sorry-for-him and wow-he-could-be-so-good receiver Scott Long. It seems his last years at Louisville were more a product of Krag's debacle and injury than his athleticism, ability, and talent. While casually watching the NFL combine for DBs, I kept noticing Scott Long's name at the top or near the top of every wide receiver "tests".
University of Louisville wide receiver Scott Long had an extremely strong NFL scouting combine, boosting his stock with several eye-catching tests.
The 6-foot-2, 216-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds and had the best vertical leap with a 41 ½ inch showing.
He had the fastest three-cone drill with a time of 6.45 seconds, had the second-fastest 20-yard shuttle run with a 4.05 time and the top 60-yard shuttle time in 11.06 seconds.
He tied Arrelious Benn and Donald Jones for the most repetitions of 225 pounds in the bench press test with 20 reps apiece.
He finished in the top 10 in every category with the highest point total overall at his position.
Last season, Long caught 53 passes for 727 yards and two touchdowns.
According to a league source, Long has drawn interest from the Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets, among other teams.
Per a source, Long has a good reputation as a strong-character individual.
