Long, the first player taken in the 2008 NFL Draft, becomes the first top overall pick to make the Pro Bowl as a rookie since New Orleans running back George Rogers in 1981. Long's the fourth No. 1 pick to do so since the 1970 merger.
"It's a huge honor to be named to the Pro Bowl team," Long said. "I am excited about the opportunity to join so many other great players in the game."
