Pos: 
Underrated offensive-line prospect with a versatile game. Starts with excellent knee bend, fires off the snap into blocks and turns defenders from the action. Keeps his feet moving, stays square and fights throughout the action. Shows the ability to slide off the edge, places his hands into defenders and rides them from their angles of attack.
Neg: 
Must learn to finish blocks. Tends to get tall as the play proceeds. Not a dominant drive blocker who gets a lot of movement.
Analysis: 
Lowly graded in the scouting community, Young did a good job at left tackle when he was inserted into the South Carolina lineup. He has enough skill to make a roster as an eighth offensive lineman at guard and potentially tackle in a pinch.
