Not to be confused with the edge rusher from Tennessee of the same name. Alabama’s Young is coming off of a monster game against Ole Miss, with 11 total tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks and a forced fumble. This week, he’ll get Austin Peay and might break some sort of record if he continues his strong play.
This is a player that Steve Spagnuolo is going to love because of his ability to line up at a number of different spots along the defensive line. Listed at 6-3 and 292 pounds, you can put him at 2i or 7-tech and find equal success. He’s powerful, quick, plays with heavy hands and relentless effort. If the Chiefs can’t re-sign some of their interior defensive linemen or extend Chris Jones ahead of 2023, Young should be on their radar.
