HEY, POP!: With his selection by the Chicago Bears with the No. 20 overall pick in today’s draft, Oregon G KYLE LONG joined an exclusive NFL club.

 

Long becomes the ninth son of a Pro Football Hall of Fame player/coach to be drafted into the league. Kyle follows his father HOWIE (HOF, 2000). Howie Long, a defensive tackle, was drafted out of Villanova by the Oakland Raiders in the second round (No. 48 overall) in 1981.

 

Howie Long is the first Pro Hall of Famer ever to have two sons chosen in the NFL Draft. Kyle’s brother, CHRIS, was the No. 2 overall choice in the 2008 NFL Draft.

GOING GLOBAL: At least eight players who hail from beyond the borders of the United States may be selected in the 2013 NFL Draft this week, including two who were chosen in Round 1.
Defensive end EZEKIEL ANSAH, a Ghana native and the No. 5 overall pick by Detroit, was the first international player selected tonight. A walk-on at Brigham Young, Ansah played football for the first time when he suited up for the Cougars in 2010. After two seasons as a reserve, Ansah earned a starting job early in the 2012 season, finishing with 4.5 sacks and 13 tackles for loss.

Indianapolis DE BJOERN WERNER, a Berlin, Germany native, was chosen No. 24 overall in tonight’s first round. He played football for the first time at age 15, but you’d never have known it watching him play at Florida State. Werner was a unanimous All-America selection in 2012, also earning ACC Defensive Player of the year honors. His 23.5 career sacks rank fourth in school history.

 

Several other international players are expected to be chosen during Rounds 2-7 of the 2013 NFL Draft.

 

A sampling of 2013 foreign-born NFL draft prospects:
