Chas Young is poised to be the third Ohio State defensive end selected with a Top 3 pick in the last three NFL drafts, and Young thinks he plays the game a lot like the other two.

Young said today on PFT Live that he, Joey Bosa and Nick Bosa have some of the same athletic talents and developed in much the same way at Ohio State.

“All three of us have the same tool box. As you see in games, we have a lot of similar moves,” Young said. “The tool box that they brought from college to the NFL, it works. I’ve been looking at them, always looking at Nick because he’s my big bro. I see what he’s doing in the league, he’s obviously doing outstanding.”

As a young player learning the game, Young says, he watched Julius Peppers and Jevon Kearse to get some ideas about how to make use of his athletic gifts.

“I always look at Julius Peppers, watch a lot of his film, guys whose bodies are like mine like Jevon Kearse,” he said.

Young is putting himself in some elite company, but no one who watched him at Ohio State doubts that he belongs.

  1. Young had a monster season up until he started getting all the hype. After coming back from suspension he had nine tackles, three sacks, and four tackles for loss against PSU. In his next three games against the Michigan, Wisconsin and Clemson he was no factor. He had no tackles or sacks against Michigian, six tackles against Wisconsin and two tackles against Clemson.

    Granted, stats don’t tell the story but for a guy who is projected to be the #2 pick in the draft, only eight tackles and zero sacks in the last three games is underwhelming. I’m not sure he should put himself in the Bosa brothers’ company just yet. He’s going to have to prove he can produce on the field and not be the invisible man in big games.

  2. Still can’t believe the Giants lost Young by winning a meaningless Week 16 game in Washington. Not only did they lose Young, but now they are going to have to face him 2X a year for the next decade. It was such a terrible season that they couldn’t even tank right!

  3. Tons of humility in one only one young man.

    But hey Sony forget Reggie white, dont stop so soon with your comparison
