BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter, awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 60/2/6.

POSITIVES: A nice-sized cornerback with solid ball skills. Displays solid footwork in reverse, loses nothing transitioning to run with opponents and covers a good amount of area on the field. Quickly reads receivers. eyes, then gets his head back around to locate the ball.

NEGATIVES: Not strong and struggles bringing ball handlers down on initial contact. Very quick out of his backpedal and prefers to side-shuffle. Better facing the quarterback and struggles with his back to the ball.

ANALYSIS: A consistent player in college, Young will get late-round consideration as a nickel or dime back who plays backed off the line of scrimmage.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
