Assessing the 2020 Washington Redskins draft class
Chase Young, Edge/DE, Ohio State (6-5, 265)
You have heard everything about him and how he will impact the NFL. It’s all true. Young will alter the plans that offensive coordinators have in place for each game.
Young’s presence on the defensive line will automatically improve the fortunes of Da’Ron Payne, Jonathan Allen, Matt Ioannidis, Montez Sweat, Ryan Kerrigan, and Tim Settle. He will have that kind of impact. Just the mention of his name will cause nightmares for opposing quarterbacks and running backs.
Young was the consensus number one player in the draft and Redskins defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio must be salivating at the thought of Chase Young lining up opposite from last year’s first round selection, Montez Sweat. The Redskins now have one of the best defensive lines in the NFL – possibly the best.
