Big 12 Ht., Wt.: 6'0, 183 40 Time: 4.49 Grade: 2.92
BIO: Two-year starter who began his career at Wisconsin. Totaled 32/467/1 as a senior after 40/681/6 the prior season.
POSITIVES: Underrated receiver that's quietly flown below the radar screen. Quick releasing off the line, displays a burst of speed and runs excellent routes. Sharp into patterns, and positions himself exiting breaks to catch the ball. Comes back to the pass helping out the quarterback, shields defenders with his frame and possesses soft hands. Adjusts to the errant throw and makes the difficult catch in traffic.
NEGATIVES: More quick than fast, does not always play to his 40 speed or stretch the defense deep like he's capable. Loses out in battles with bigger opponents.
ANALYSIS: An athletic wide out who looks the part, Young has been relatively reliable at ISU though not overly productive. Could fill the role as a slot receiver, placed on the field during third-down situations.
