Ohio State defensive end Chase Young is one of the best prospects – if not the best prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft. Sporting News’ seven-round mock draft pairs Young with the Washington Redskins with the No. 2 pick, and that is a typical landing spot for the Heisman Trophy finalist. Young was a Heisman Trophy finalist last season after compiling 16.5 sacks and 21 tackles for loss for the Buckeyes in 2019. “You talk about Jadeveon Clowney and Myles Garrett and Julius Peppers. Bill Parcells called it the ‘Walking the Earth’ theory,” ESPN “Get Up” analyst Bobby Carpenter told SN. “There are not too many people like that walking the Earth. He is in that select few with those guys.” What else should you know about Young? Here is what his NFL team is getting.THE MAKING OF CHASE YOUNGHow an athletic freak at Ohio State became the best player in the NFL DraftChase Young height, weight compared to all-time greatsChase Young measured at 6-5 and 264 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine. Young opted not to work out, and Ohio State’s Pro Day was canceled because of the spread of COVID-19, so scouts have relied on his college game film and absurd highlight reel.He has similar dimensions as former No. 1 picks Myles Garrett (6-4, 272) and Jadeveon Clowney (6-5, 266). Julius Peppers (6-7, 295) was bigger than all three. The fact Young is being lumped in with those three pass rushers speaks to his talent, and he’s often propped up against two other defensive ends that played at Ohio State. The Bengals likely will take Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow with the No. 1 pick, but Young should be a consideration given his generational talent.Chase Young college stats vs. Bosa brothers Joey Bosa was the No. 3 picks in the 2016 NFL Draft, and his brother Nick was the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. All three edge rushers played three seasons at Ohio State, and here is a look at how that production stacks up.

Young did have the most sacks of the three players, and that is why there is reason to believe he can be just as productive as the other two in the NFL. Joey Bosa has 40 sacks in four seasons with the Chargers. Nick Bosa had nine sacks last season. Both were named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson sees Young following the same path as the Bosa brothers. “They understand how to attack people,” Johnson told SN. “When you can do that, that to me is the essential part of being a great defensive end. Chase has the ability to do that.” Chase Young highlightsMORE: The 7 safest NFL Draft picks in the 2020 classWhy was Chase Young suspended in 2019Young served a two-game suspension in 2019 for taking a loan from a family friend, and that effectively ended his Heisman Trophy campaign. Young, however, returned to the team instead of sitting out the rest of the season to prepare for the NFL Draft. He helped the Buckeyes finish off a Big Ten championship run en route to a College Football Playoff appearance against Clemson. “There was never a conversation about, ‘I’m going, coach,'” Johnson said. “He said, ‘No matter what happens I’m going to stand strong, be a man and come back and play for the Buckeyes.’ As a coach and knowing Chase really well, that says a lot about him as a person.” Why is Young called ‘The Predator?’ Young’s signature dreadlocks and long, tall frame have prompted fans to call him “Predator,” a nod to the 1980s action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. That should make for easy marketing opportunities in the NFL. Chase Young mock draft: He could become a close-to-home D.C. heroYoung played his high school football at DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Md., where he emerged as a five-star talent. He would be the Redskins’ second straight first-round pick from Ohio State who played high school football at the Bullis School in Potomac, Md. Young likely would become one of the most popular players in Washington as a result. The Redskins have had three players in franchise history compile 80 or more sacks. That list includes Dexter Manley (91), Ryan Kerrigan (90) and Charles Mann (82). Young has the kind of long-term talent to join that list down the line. Young might be the safest draft NFL Draft pick SN’s Tadd Haislop ranked the seven safest picks in the NFL Draft, and Young made that list. That suggests he should be able to be a player capable of racking up double-digit sacks at the next level. He will continue to be propped up against those “Walking the Earth” players. Garrett had 30.5 sacks in this first three seasons with the Browns. Clowney has 32 sacks over six seasons, and Peppers with 159.5 sacks, which ranks fourth all time. Young has that kind of talent. Now, it is time to see it in action.
