BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who saw limited action with the first-team as a sophomore. Missed the last month of his senior campaign after undergoing surgery to repair a torn quadriceps tendon in his left knee.

POSITIVES: Nice sized college tackle that projects to guard at the next level. Blocks with good lean, quickly gets his hands into defenders and seals them from the action with outstanding body positioning. Strong at the point, knocks opponents off the ball and large enough to engulf defenders altogether. Plays with a nasty attitude and always looking hit someone. Keeps his feet moving, stays square and effective in pass protection.

NEGATIVES: Lacks footwork and overall lateral blocking range. Struggles to adjust and minimally effective in motion.

ANALYSIS: Young was a solid offensive lineman at Tennessee and a highly rated prospect prior to his injury of last year. He offers starting potential at the next level and could end up as one of the better bargains from this draft in the middle rounds.

PROJECTION: Middle Third Round
