    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Do you think Miller and Ware were better than Peppers? A player Chase Young is compared to a lot. Imo Peppers was a better overall player than both.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    https://lettermenrow.com/ohio-state-football/chase-young-ohio-state-buckeyes-football-development-rise-nfl-draft/ "It was a test, and going through all that, I’m good with it now because I know how that feels. With the whole double teams and chips and stuff like that, it really doesn’t faze me anymore because I trust in Coach J. They can’t do that the whole game. If they want to win the game, they can’t throw those little 5-yard passes the whole game. They’re going to have to launch the ball, and when they do, that’s when you’ve got to make them pay for it. You just have to take advantage of your opportunities. I feel like after going through that, I’m ready for anything.” That, of course, is bad news for those tackles that Young spends hours studying each week. If he’s ready for anything, there’s nobody ever really ready to stop him. “I would say I really haven’t thought of him in the human context,” Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. “He’s a very good player, big strong defensive end … he’s firm. He’s very well coached. He’s got a very quick first step out of the box. “I don’t really think of him in terms of: ‘Oh, he’s just like so and so.’ I just look at him like a guy who’s extremely productive, making big plays out there. … He can wreck a football game.” The Spartans found that out the hard way, and a couple days later Young was in the film room diving into ways that he could have given Ohio State even more. He could have been anywhere as the off-date weekend started and the Buckeyes earned a couple days of freedom. But Young was in the film room with Johnson, reflecting on where he’s been and looking ahead to where he wants to go. “He wants to be the best,” Johnson said. “Whatever it takes, he’s driven to be the best.” So, take a stroll down memory lane with Chase Young. The proof for the best player in the country is right there on film.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/ohio-states-chase-young-is-playing-like-a-heisman-contender/ Ohio State is bludgeoning its opponents. The margin of victory in each of the team’s eight wins has been no smaller than 24 points, meaning that Young — perhaps in the interest of opposing quarterback safety — is removed from the field of play well before the score goes final. Among defensive linemen, Young is tied for 290th in defensive snaps, playing 261 total snaps this season. Just 17 of those snaps have come in the fourth quarter. His workload consists of little more than half of Ohio State’s total defensive snaps and just 15.5 percent of the Buckeyes’ fourth-quarter defensive snaps. Heisman voters are mere human beings, biased by factors ranging from region to conference to position to race. Production is rarely contextualized,4 and the data with which these votes are cast is limited when it comes to defensive players. Sacks, tackles for loss and pressures — all of which Young has going for his candidacy — are only a fraction of on-field production and value. But while imperfect, parsing Ohio State’s defensive splits with and without Young is instructive in identifying his value. While Ohio State allows a best-in-country 3.6 yards per play, with Young on the field, the Buckeyes allow 3.0 (the best mark through eight games since at least 2004), according to ESPN Stats & Information Group. Nearly half of all opponent plays gain zero or negative yardage when Young is on the field, a rate that drops 10.1 percentage points when he sits. Moreover, when Young is removed from the field, the Buckeyes pressure rate drops nearly 12 percentage points. https://www.theringer.com/platform/amp/2019/11/22/20977212/chase-young-ohio-state-nfl-draft Young is an athletic marvel with a prototypical frame for the edge rusher position. The Buckeyes defender is 6-foot-5 and, as former teammate and current 49er Nick Bosa recently put it, “270 pounds with a six-pack.” (He’s listed at 265, but you get the point.) Young boasts a thick, muscular lower half and long, powerful arms―a rare combination of mass, length, and athleticism that helps make him one of the most versatile defenders in college football. He’s a movable chess piece capable of playing all over the line, setting the edge with authority against the run on one play and then rag-dolling opposing tackles to get to the quarterback on the next. He’s even adaptable enough to line up as a stand-up end and drop back into coverage, as the Buckeyes asked him to do at times against Wisconsin back on October 26―a schematic package the team drew up to throw the Badgers offense for a loop. Of course, his ability to go backward isn’t what will get Young drafted inside the top three picks of the 2020 draft—it’s his ability to get after the passer. Young’s get-off at the snap is the first thing that jumps off the tape: Whether he’s rushing from a two- or a three-point stance, the Buckeyes edge rusher uncoils upfield to explode through blocks with the speed of a drag racer. That elite first step has left his coaches at Ohio State in awe: It’s “ridiculous,” co-defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley recently put it. “His get-off, his speed, it’s unbelievable. It’s like nothing I’ve seen before.” Head coach Ryan Day apparently concurs, noting after Young’s massive four-sack outing against the Badgers that the junior pass rusher’s first step is “the best I’ve been around.” Coaches often talk up their players, sure, but that’s still pretty lofty praise considering how recently Day coached Bosa. It’s still very early in the predraft process, of course, but there’s little doubt that Young has all the attributes teams look for in a franchise-altering player: He’s a rare athlete, has posted extraordinary numbers, boasts a developing repertoire of fundamental techniques, and by all accounts, has a strong work ethic and desire to improve his game. With the versatility to play multiple roles in just about any defense, Young is already as close to the complete package as a prospect as you can get―and at 20 years old, he’s just getting started.

    Both Really though I believe Young has more upside, he's an athletic freak with more potential to be a mega star the likes of J.J. Watt. Bosa is very good too though imo. https://nflmocks.com/2019/11/24/2020-nfl-draft-chase-young-good-no-1/amp/ As great of a prospect as Garrett was, Young is even better. He is an absolutely dominant player who could come in and make a difference right away. Chase Young is the kind of player who you can build a defense around. Pass him up at your own risk.

    Give me Young. https://saturdaytradition.com/ohio-state-football/lane-kiffin-compares-ohio-states-chase-young-to-former-no-1-pick-myles-garrett-he-will-change-your-whole-game-plan/?amp “Guy’s a great player and will change your whole game plan like a Myles Garrett does,” Kiffin said, according to Eleven Warriors. “We saw it happen.” “I can see why they talk about him being the first pick in the draft,” Kiffin said. “The guy’s a special player, and he really changed the first half by himself. We had some plays that were going to be there and he makes plays. They’re a very talented team. We just played a top-five team.”

    https://www.profootballnetwork.com/pauline-rivera-loves-chase-young-redskins-news-and-notes/ On Draft Insiders, Tony mentioned the interest the Redskins and new head coach Ron Rivera have in Young: “I will tell you this – I said weeks ago that in my Q&A segment that Ron Rivera, who took over the Washington Redskins, loves Chase Young. I’ve not heard that that has changed. I’m told that he loves The Predator and he reminds him of Julius Peppers. As of right now, it’s very likely the way they’re going to go.”

    https://www.profootballnetwork.com/super-bowl-54-player-performance-nfl-rookie-stock-report/?amp&__twitter_impression=true The 49ers may have come out on the losing end of the Super Bowl, but that should not take away from the performances their rookies put up. All season long, the 49ers have gotten some great play out of their latest crop of rookies, and Sunday’s game was no exception. It all starts up front with the Defensive Rookie of the Year award winner, Nick Bosa. To say that Bosa was hard for the Chiefs’ offensive line to handle on Sunday would be a gross understatement. The former Ohio State star and number two overall pick turned in one of the most dominating performances I’ve ever seen from a pass rusher. It was arguably the best performance on the biggest stage since Reggie White dominated the New England Patriots all those years ago. Bosa is already putting himself in rarefied air, and he’s got so much career ahead of him. If this Super Bowl is any indication — or his entire NFL rookie season, for that matter — Bosa is going to be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

    https://fansided.com/2020/02/05/2020-nfl-draft-profile-chase-best-prospect/amp/ Young is a rare EDGE prospect who would be a bona fide top-five pick in pretty much any class you put him in. Had LSU’s Joe Burrow not put together the 2019 season he did, I don’t think there’s any doubt Young would be as sure of a bet to go first overall as you can get. Size, length, freakish athleticism, and ability to dominate against the run and pass, Young is an All-Pro caliber EDGE player who profiles best with his hand in the dirt in a 4-3 alignment. He will challenge for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in his first season, and if he’s able to remain healthy, he should become a sack machine and perennial Defensive POY candidate as soon as he steps on the field at the pro level. https://amp.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001101375/article/mclaurin-young-could-be-better-than-bosa-brothers?networkId=4595&site=.news&zone=story&zoneUrl=url%3Dstory&zoneKeys=s1%3Dstory&env=&pageKeyValues=prtnr%3Daround-the-league%3Bplyr%3Djoseph_bosa%3Bplyr%3Dterry_mclaurin%3Bplyr%3Dnicholas_bosa&p.ct=Around+the+NFL&p.adsm=true&p.tcm=%23fff&p.bgc1m=%230964bf&p.bgc2m=%23053a74&sr=amp A lightning-quick first step, Young can blast pass blockers before they get out of their stance. The edge rusher can win with power or speed and sets the edge well versus the run. NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah ranked Young his No. 1 overall prospect in 2020 and compared the OSU product to the likes of Julius Peppers and Mario Williams.

    https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/scouting-report-chase-young-whos-everything-you-want-defensive-end Young is the best defensive prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft and is one of the best defensive end prospects to come from the college ranks in years. But why exactly is he so hyped up? Well, to answer that question, the Redskins Talk podcast brought on Ohio State beat writer Bill Rabinowitz for a scouting report on the 20-year-old (yes, he's just 20). Rabinowitz, like most others, has a hard time finding a flaw in Young's game. "You're getting pretty much a finished product," he said. "He's not a project, he's the real deal." "He's everything you want in a defensive end," Rabinowitz continued. "He's quick, he's fast, he's strong, he's a very good technician. He cares. It's about as no-brainer of a pick as you're going to find, honestly."

    https://www.redskins.com/news/terry-mclaurin-believes-chase-young-has-a-chance-to-possibly-be-the-best Redskins receiver Terry McLaurin is in a unique position; he was a Buckeye himself from 2015-18, so he has played with the Bosa brothers -- each of whom won NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year -- in addition to Young. Out of those three, McLaurin thinks Young has the potential to be the best. "I've seen them all," McLaurin told Voice of the Redskins Larry Michael and staff writer Kyle Stackpole on Radio Row ahead of Super Bowl LIV. "In college, I felt like Chase was the most productive of the three, and he has a chance to possibly be the best. That doesn't take anything away from [Joey and Nick]. That just tells you how good he can be." There are few, if any questions regarding Young as top-tier prospect, and ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay believes the Redskins selecting him could be "the easiest pick on the board." "Last year's No. 2 pick and Buckeyes teammate Nick Bosa was a difference-maker [for the San Francisco 49ers] in Year 1," McShay wrote in his latest mock draft. "But the scary truth is that Young is an even better prospect."

    Not sure why anyone would be, he's our best defensive lineman imo. Ioinnidis, Payne and Settle are really good too, but Allen is the best.

    I predict CY will have 50 tackles, 15 sacks, 9 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, 2 interceptions, 2 defensive touchdowns, 10 passes defensed, 10 stuffs, 1 blocked kick en route to DROTY and DPOTY honors. Don't rule out 3 sacks in February and Super Bowl MVP also. Booyah.
