Pos: 
Productive run-defending linebacker with poor size and speed. Breaks down well, flows to the action laterally and makes plays in space. Easily changes direction, displays speed in pursuit and covers a lot of area. Gets depth on pass drops, remains disciplined with assignments and wraps up tackling.
Neg: 
Not a big, sturdy linebacker. Times poorly in the 40 and struggles in coverage.
Analysis: 
Young gets the most from his ability and plays bigger and faster than his computer numbers. He could be an inexpensive backup at the next level if he improves his play against the pass.
