Entering last season, there was little debate about Jake Long being one of the elite left tackles in the game. Assessments like that can change quickly in the NFL, though. The Miami Dolphins changed up their blocking system, Long got hurt again and his production diminished. That's raised a fair number of flags about what teams can expect from him going forward, especially considering that he should command a hefty contract as a free agent this offseason.
