Biography: Two-year starter who finished with 64/9.50/1 as a senior after junior totals of 78 tackles and 11 tackles for loss.
Positives: "Undersized pursuit linebacker who displays ability in coverage. Flows well to the action, gets depth on pass drops, and covers a lot of area on the field. Does not bite on play-action passes, is effective in space, and has a burst to the action in pursuit. Makes a lot of athletic plays on the field. Wraps up tackling."
Negatives: Undersized and not a sure-handed tackler. Overmatched by larger opponents.
Analysis: Young is a solid one-gap defensive prospect who can back up in an NFL system that allows him to freely flow to the action.
