Pos: 
Undersized three-technique tackle who comes off a disappointing season. Fundamentally sound, fires off the snap with a great first step and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Keeps his feet moving, plays with balance and quickly changes direction and alters his angle of attack. Explodes through gaps and shows the ability to pursue plays laterally.
Neg: 
Lacks size and bulk and gets easily blocked from the action. Was out of position at defensive end in UNT's three-man line last season.
Analysis: 
Young is a tough, hard-working lineman who gets the most from his ability but lacks great upside. He's a scheme-specific three-technique tackle who can also be an asset on special teams.
