So let’s start with him: “I expect him to have a similar impact as the Bosas. He will become one of the best in the NFL.” Meyer coached Joey Bosa and Nick Bosa: “They’re very similar as far as being a hard worker and good person and teammate. Chase Young may be the most naturally gifted of all three. He has an incredible gift of size, speed and athleticism. Big men rarely can flip their hips as well as Chase. He can turn on a 90-degree angle.” Dwayne Haskins played with Chase Young at Ohio State so let’s hear from him: “He’s like one of those game-wrecker, game-breaker Khalil Mack-type of players where you’d have to be responsible for him in a game, if not he will disrupt the game.” On and on it goes. ...“Just a game-wrecker,” ESPN “College GameDay” analyst Kirk Herbstreit told Serby Says. “He’s a complete player. For a big man, he’s as good of a pass rusher as I’ve seen. He not just looking for a knockout shot, he’s aware enough to try to get the ball dislodged and get a turnover. He’s as good as I’ve seen in a long time come out as a pass rusher.” Here’s why: “He’s a legitimate 6-5, 260 pounds, and yet he runs like a safety,” Herbstreit said. “Beyond his physical attributes, I just think his knowledge now, of knowing how to attack an offensive tackle, that’s the thing that I would say has taken him to kind of a different stratosphere in the last year. He’s a great example of why guys stick around and play college football. Whoever gets him, they’re getting a guy that can step right in, very similar to what Joey and Nick Bosa have done, step right in and they’re ready to contribute and be a dominant player.” Hall of Fame NFL executive Gil Brandt has seen them all. “He has great initial quickness,” Brandt said. “When they time him in the 40, he’ll probably run 1.50 10-yard, which is great quickness. I think he has great ability to change direction. I really don’t see any weakness in him that I know of. I think he’s a can’t-miss player, and potential Pro Bowler. Could possibly be a first-year Pro Bowler.” Former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum is similarly impressed. “He is a prototypical defensive end who has physical dominant traits similar to Jadeveon Clowney,” Tannenbaum said. “Really good lower-body flexibility, great motor and can immediately impact the game. He is incredibly disruptive.” ...NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger is convinced Young will make an immediate impact as a rookie. “I think you can do a lot of things with him, I think you can play him on the right side, left side, stand him up, put him down,” Baldinger said. “I think he’s got a lot of flexibility like that, which is OK, it’s not necessary. But I just think that when he turns the corner, he looks like a real thoroughbred turning the corner. And that’s really what you need, because the sacks will come. But you need a guy that can just continually collapse the pocket, that can just make the quarterback nervous and can make him move his feet, and make you go chip him, to slide to him, to affect the way your protections get set up.” Baldinger can see Young changing the culture of a defensive line and defense the way Nick Bosa has for the 49ers. “I played with Reggie White, he just made the difference. … I played with Randy White, he just made the difference on the defensive line,” Baldinger said. “You could tell when they were there, when they weren’t there. And I just think the Giants need that guy on defense to turn this thing around.” ESPN commentator Paul Finebaum sounded like Giants GM Dave Gettleman talking about Saquon Barkley. “Easily the best player in college football,” Finebaum said. “Absolutely dynamic. Reminds me a lot of Khalil Mack. I believe he is a generational player.” Herbstreit applauds Ohio State associate head coach/defensive line coach Larry Johnson for Young’s development. Asked to compare Young to the Bosa Bros., Herbstreit said, “You almost look at Chase as a combination of the two. He’s not that low center of gravity, but he still has amazing bend.” Young’s stop of Penn State running back Miles Sanders last season with 82 seconds left at the Ohio State 43 still stands out to Haskins. “Fourth-and-5 versus Penn State at Beaver Stadium to win the game,” Haskins said. “Penn State has the ball, driving to try to win the game and he seals the game on a fourth-and-5. “Great dude,” Haskins said. “Very funny personality, has a great family, and football means a lot to him.” https://nypost.com/2019/12/15/why-game-wrecker-chase-young-can-instantly-transform-giants/ Edited December 31, 2019 by Skinsinparadise 2 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
