BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who posted 206/968/6 as a senior while also adding 23/212/1 catching the ball. Posted a career-high 1334 rushing yards as a sophomore when he led the Big Ten Conference.
POSITIVES: Strong, well-built ball-carrier with good vision. Patient, waits for blocks to develop, and displays a burst through the hole. Uses an effective straight-arm to keep runs alive and shows the ability to bounce around defenders. Sifts his way through traffic on the inside. Solid receiver out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Shows a lot of indecision carrying the ball. Does not pick up much yardage off initial contact.
ANALYSIS: Young has been productive the past three years as a ball-carrier and pass-catcher. His best shot at the next level is as a situational/third-down back.
