We know Ohio State defensive end Chase Young is a freakishly athletic beast on the turf, but you probably didn't know just how powerful his leaping ability is, too. Obviously the 21-year old has a bright future in football, but this clip has us wondering what Young would be capable of on the basketball court. Young's latest workouts are a sight to behold, and watching him clear this towering box jump with ease is helping us get through Draft Week.
Wow. Four feet, six inches, and it looked like Young could do that over and over again without breaking a sweat. There's not exactly a way for the defensive end to work that element into his game, but you'd better believe he'd be a kick-blocking factor on special teams.
How could the Redskins possibly pass up on this guy at No. 2 overall in this week's (!) NFL Draft? Washington can give Dwayne Haskins another year and take a chance on another Buckeye. Young is an elite, day-one starter, and is one of the most highly-touted defensive prospects in ages.
Soon enough, Young and his 6-5, 264 pound frame will be terrorizing offensive lines around the league for years to come.
