Biography: Four-year starter who played 51 games with the first team.
Positives: Massive offensive lineman who plays a finesse game. Works to bend his knees, block with leverage, and stays square. Displays the ability to adjust, shows good hand punch, and keeps defenders in front of him. Easily controls opponents once engaged at the point of attack.
Negatives: Over-extends, lacks balance and lateral blocking range. Lumbers about the field and does not move well on his feet. Does too much leaning on opponents and walked back into the quarterback.
Analysis: Young has been durable on the college level and has the measurables to play at the next level yet has never displayed himself to be the nasty, dominant lineman many thought he could be. He offers possibilities on the strong side yet must improve his run blocking strength and playing balance.
