Biography: Full-time starter the past two seasons and awarded all-conference honors as a senior. Totals last year included 51 tackles/2 interceptions/2 pass breakups after he had 41/3/3 the prior year.
Positives: Nice-sized safety who is best playing downhill. Instinctive, effectively diagnoses the action and takes good angles to the play. Feisty, shows a burst out of his plant and works hard to make plays. Efficient getting to the action. Effectively covers receivers over the middle of the field.
Negatives: Better facing the action and struggles when placed over slot receivers. Lacks lateral range and not fast out to the flanks. Marginal ball skills.
Analysis: Young is a hard-hitting and well-sized defensive back who projects as a conventional strong safety for the next level.
