Has anyone heard of this guy? Looks like his college career was rather unremarkable. Cardinals Profile Lance Long Position: Receiver. Height, weight: 5-11, 186. Age: 23. College: Mississippi State. Hometown: Macomb, Mich. Background: Long started his college career at Toledo but transferred to Mississippi State after his freshman season. In three years at Mississippi State, he caught 46 passes and had only 14 his senior year. He started two of 12 games as a senior. His high school team, Utica Eisenhower High in Shelby Township, Mich., finished second in the state his sophomore and junior seasons. How he got here: Signed with the team as a rookie free agent. 2008 projected role: Long is competing for a spot on the practice squad. His quickness has stood out in camp at times. As a gunner during punt-team drills, he recently beat two players off the line, not an easy thing to do. Long will get limited work in preseason games and needs to prove that he can play special teams.
