The Bears have beefed up their offensive line with their first-round draft pick.
Kyle Long, a guard from Oregon, is Chicago’s choice with the 20th overall pick, and an immediate starter whose job is keeping Jay Cutler upright.
Long is the son of Hall of Famer Howie Long and brother of Rams defensive end Chris Long. Football talent runs in the family.
This isn’t a sexy pick for the Bears, but it is a pick that should make everyone in Chicago who has been grumpy about the Bears’ porous offensive line happy. And it’s certainly a pick that should make Cutler happy.
