Terry McLaurin: Chase Young can be better than the Bosas

Most people expect the Bengals to take a quarterback with the first overall pick in this year’s draft and that would leave Ohio State defensive end Chase Young for Washington with the second overall pick.

The team will be working to make sure that Young’s the right pick for them between now and April and that process could include a conversation with wide receiver Terry McLaurin. If it does, they’ll like what they hear.

McLaurin went to Ohio State, so he played with Young as well as with Joey and Nick Bosa. The Bosas have won two of the last four defensive rookie of the year awards and McLaurin said recently that he thinks Young can be an even better player than the other former Buckeyes.

“I’ve seen them all,” McLaurin said, via the team’s website. “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.”

McLaurin isn’t the first to suggest that Young is a better prospect than the Bosas were when they came out of Columbus and a player like that would be a welcome addition to Ron Rivera’s first defense in Washington.

  1. Breaking OSU sack record while being suspended for a game (dumb reason) tells me all I need to know…TAKE HIM!

  2. Id be a little leery of a guy who is “the best prospect of them all”, who was completely invisible in his bowl game.

    The Athletic did a detailed breakdown of Young’s performance in the bowl game. He was hardly invisible, but that’s what people who only count sacks as a measure of success will say.

    Let me know when Chase Young is a rookie in the Super Bowl and is the best defensive player on either team

    Yes dominant, except, of course, when it mattered.

    Then…

    Not so much.

    He was good but that title is reserved for De’Forest Buckner.

    Bosa extremely overrated.

    8 sacks with no double teams due to a strong front across the board?

    Media darling.

    Like Kittle.
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Well said. Agreed.

  7. Nick is better than Joey. Much like TJ watt is better than JJ.

    But none of them have a Superbowl ring like Chris Jones and Frank Clark.

  8. I will take Danielle Hunter as my DE.
    He only is off to an all time best career if any DE ever!

  9. From 2018 draft, who has helped his team more? Myles Garrett the #1 overall pick or Patrick Mahomes #10 overall pick or Deshaun Watson #12 overall pick? A great QB has more impact than a great pass rusher.

  10. Bosa was an impact in all playoff games. Ewwin Donald totally disappeared in every playoff game last year. Even Donkey Kong played better.

    As to whether an Ohio State player can rise above the scum of the university, I’d say Terry M. is an exception, rather than the rule. I’d not push it adding Chase. It is like Alabama defensive players – once they escape the hive, they take a dive in the NFL.

    Tell that to the Bosa’s, Marshon Lattimore, Zeke, Michael Thomas, all the offensive lineman in the league, Bradley Roby, Von Bell etc. The list really goes on.
