Chris Long DE St. Louis Rams

After Hall of Fame Raider Howie Long's son Chris Long got drafted #2 overall in the 2009 NFL draft after Dolphins OT Jake Long, Rams fans thought they were going to get a player the caliber of his father since day one. Through 2 years however, he had only 9 sacks in 32 games. This year, however, he has stepped up and became a force for the upstart Rams who are still in a position to get a playoff position despite picking #1 overall last year. This year he has 7.5 sacks and is garnering some Pro Bowl interest.

It should be noted that as an infant, Chris Long got his acting start in a PSA -- a public service announcement that was against drinking. Little did Howie know his baby "Christopher" would grow up to party  like he does.
