West Virginia LB David Long Jr. Contextualization: College Career Key Defensive Plays

West Virginia linebacker David Long Jr. is likely a player we’ll be discussing quite a bit as a possible 2019 NFL Draft selection of the Pittsburgh Steelers for the next several weeks as he’s already been linked to the team in a few mock drafts. That will likely continue to happen the next several weeks following Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin both being at the West Virginia pro day. With our draft profile of Long already on the site, a few readers are wanting to see more about the plays he made during his college career at West Virginia.

In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to several top players in the 2019 draft class, I am currently putting together as many contextualization posts as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Steelers might select in the various rounds. In this post, we’ll contextualize the defensive plays made by Long during his college career and specifically those that included him registering ether a tackle for loss, a sack, a pass defensed, a hurry, an interception, or a forced fumble.

Long registered 14 total sacks in the 34 games that he played in at West Virginia dating back to 2016 and 40 total tackles that resulted in lost yardage. He also registered 10 total pass breakups to go along with 1 total forced fumble and 7 hurries. I was able to track down all of these 58 plays that he made and they are contextualized for you in the table below and in order. Each play is linked to a video of it on Youtube.

I really think most of you will like what you see of Long after watching all of these plays. He very well could wind yup being the Steelers linebacker choice in the draft this year.
