65 Days To Purdue Football: Charlie Long

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The reserve lineman from Poway, California is a redshirt freshman.

Purdue has a bit of history when to comes to strong contributions from walk-ons along the offensive line. Nick Hardwick was once a walk-on, and now he is a Pro Bowl offensive lineman in the NFL. That would be quite the lofty achievement for today's player.

Offensive Line

2014 Projection: Deep reserve on offensive line

Purdue is probably in deep trouble if Charlie Long has to play this year. At only 250 pounds he would be shoved around by almost every starting defensive lineman in the league, and being only 6'1" does not help, either. Still, he is an interesting history as a walk-on. He has a secret admirer according to facebook. Being from the San Diego area also probably has him as a pretty laid back guy. Most likely this is going to be a guy that makes his largest impact in practice.
