Young has good speed, he always wraps up on tackle attempts, and is very experienced. He was a ball hawk, and a tackling machine for Temple. On the other hand, he is very undersized, he has issues against taller receivers, he gets beat quite often, and he commits some un-needed penalties. With that said, I expect Young to be a day 3 pick.
