The Washington Redskins hired Chase Young

With the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, almost every pundit predicted that the Washington Redskins would pick Russar Chase Young on the Ohio State side.

Considered one of the most talented players in the draft class – even Cincinnati Bengal’s number one Joe Burrow – Young is an elite athlete, bringing tremendous strength and speed to running in the quarterback.

In 2014, a 5-foot youth led the FBS with 16.5 sacks and six forced bombs, putting pressure on 35 percent of his passes, with at least 120 passes being the highest in the subdivision.

Quick first steps and the use of a strong upper body, Young had an uninterrupted presence in the opponent’s backfields, accumulating 21 tackles for losses – finishing fourth in the FBS in 2019.

The youngster won the award for his performance as the country’s top defensive lineman last season and is the fourth D-lineman since 1982 to become the final candidate for the Heisman Trophy.

Conducted at the same height as Julius Peppers and Javan Kersey, Young is seen as a differentiator in the flame investigation and who will face the Washington defense over the next few years and continue to be defeated against anti-crime.
