Overview

Young possesses the makeup and run-after-the-catch ability of an NFL slot receiver who could also contribute in the return game. Put a few really impressive statistical seasons on his resume. Has the quickness and speed to get open underneath but route-running is still somewhat or a work in progress. Was not being covered by elite defensive backs on a week-to-week basis. Size is an issue, as more physical defensive backs can out-muscle him, and limits his downfield big-play potential. Has some off-the-field and on-field behavioral issues that must be checked out. However, Young's production and "make you miss" talent will likely land him in the middle rounds.

Analysis

Strengths

Young can make the first man miss on short passes. Reaches top speed in a hurry to gain yards after the catch. Does a good job beating man coverage on underneath routes and can find the soft spots in zones. Has enough speed to threaten a defense vertically at times. Very competitive.

Weaknesses

Lack of bulk and strength prevents him from winning jump ball battles. Willing to roam the middle but can be pressed at the line or bullied off his routes. Doesn't seem to drop many balls but is a body-catcher. Has been disciplined and suspended multiple times during college career.
