Jake Edward Long (born May 9, 1985) is an American football offensive tackle for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Dolphins first overall in the 2008 NFL Draft. He played college football at Michigan. Previously he starred at Lapeer East High School in football, basketball and baseball.

In high school, Long was the first player in his high school's history to earn all-state "Dream Team" (all-class state team) honors in football from the Detroit News. He was a two-time First-team All-Metro League player in both basketball and football, where he was honored both on offense and defense. In baseball, he was a two-time Second-team All-Metro League selection. In both basketball and football, he led his team to regular and post season success that had not been seen in many years.

In college, he redshirted for a year and then became a starter at offensive tackle for the football team in the third game of his redshirt freshman season. He earned Second-team All-Big Ten Conference recognition and Freshman All-American recognition. In 2006 & 2007, he earned Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year and First-team All-Big Ten Conference recognition. In 2006 he was an Outland and Lombardi Trophy watch lists selection and in 2007 he was a finalist for both awards. He was a 2006 consensus All-American and 2007 unanimous All-American.

After being drafted by Miami, he became an immediate starter and has started every game that the team has played since he has been a member. At the conclusion of his rookie season, he was selected to numerous All-Rookie teams and was a substitute Pro Bowl selection. Long followed up a successful rookie season by earning a position in the starting lineup of the 2010 Pro Bowl.
