Quotes: Spencer Long (5.9.14)

G Spencer Long (Round 3, No. 78 Overall)

On getting the call from the Redskins:

"It's overwhelming. I was just sitting there watching the draft with my close friends and family and, you know, your heart is racing the whole time just watching the picks go by. I'm so thankful for this moment and so happy. You know, I've come a long way and I just couldn't be happier to be a Washington Redskin right now."

On his knee and the recovery:

"The knee feels great. I've had no problems with it. It feels amazing. I've been training at full go, not holding back and doing football work. I'm just ready to hit the ground running for rookie minicamp next week."

* *

On which knee was injured:

"Left… MCL, PCL."

On what he brings to a team:

"I think I bring a mentally tough and physically tough guy on and off the field who takes care of his business and is a very consistent player. Well-rounded, can have very good potential to make a difference on the team here."

On if he has more comfort as a left guard or right guard:

"It does not matter, really. I mean, I've played all three inside positions. I have had my most experience at right guard. You know, wherever I can help, I am happy to play."

On his familiarity with zone blocking: "We ran zone with both the offense coordinators I was under – Shawn Watson and Tim Beck. I am very familiar with it."
