Defensive end, Ohio State Buckeyes
40 time: 4.70e
Young had to wait his turn on a loaded Ohio State roster, but he was productive in a rotational role in 2017, collecting 3.5 sacks and six tackles for loss in 12 games. He broke out as a sophomore starter, piling up 10.5 sacks and 15.5 TFLs. Despite facing additional attention from opposing offenses last season, Young erupted for 16.5 sacks, 21 TFLs and seven forced fumbles despite missing two games due to an NCAA suspension for accepting a loan. He won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy as the nation’s top defender and had a legitimate case for the Heisman Trophy if not for Joe Burrow’s transcendent season.
Young sat out the NFL Scouting Combine, letting his sterling resume speak for itself.
