The Chicago Bears want to keep Ndamukong Suh off Jay Cutler's back. That's the easiest explanation of the drafting of Oregon's Kyle Long with the 20th overall pick in April's draft. Long spent a little time at right tackle during the Bears' rookie minicamp over the weekend, but the plan is for him to play right guard. "Suh plays over the right guard and we have to win the division first," offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer told the Chicago Tribune. "Obviously, at Green Bay they flip their tackles, so they could have B.J. Raji on both sides. We want to make sure that we have good matchups in these games. We drafted these guys to win the division first." Last October, Suh's powerful sack of Cutler on "Monday Night Football" forced the Chicago quarterback to the locker room, and even drew criticism from wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
