Chase Young tells ESPN's Get Up which NFL QB he's looking forward to sacking
Chase Young piled up the sacks while he was at Ohio State. It didn’t matter who the Buckeyes were facing, he was considered one of the most dangerous defensive players on the field.
His dominance at the college level in the B1G has propelled him into the projected No. 2 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft. Many expect him to have an outstanding career at the next level, regardless of where he spends his career.
On Wednesday, Young was asked a very specific question on ESPN’s Get Up. With experience bringing so many college quarterbacks to the turf, which NFL gunslinger is hoping to sack the most when he gets to the league?
Young’s response was Baltimore Ravens quarterback and former Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson.
“If I get the chance to play him, Lamar Jackson,” Young said. “He’s real fast, real shifty, hard to get down. In my opinion, was the best player in the league this past season. It’s just something I want to do because, you know at quarterback, he’s the one doing it right now in the league.”
Young collected 29.5 sacks in his three seasons at Ohio State, including 16.5 this past season. He earned his way to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist, one of the few defensive players to receive that opportunity in college football history.
In order to be the best, you have to be able to stop the best. And Young is confident he could bring Jackson down, if given the opportunity.
