Chase Young Comes to D.C.

No surprise through the first two picks of the draft, as the Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins pick the players that about 90% of mock drafts predicted: Joe Burrow out of LSU and Chase Young from Ohio State.

This time last year, the Redskins took Dwayne Haskins out of Ohio State, and so far the pick has not paid off. Plenty of quarterbacks have taken a couple years to develop, but the 2019 passing stats for the rookie quarterback were beyond uninspiring: 1,365 yards, 7 touchdowns, 7 interceptions, and a passer rating of 26.4.

The Redskins still have a lot to look forward to in the 2020 season. Alex Smith sounds hopeful about a 2020 return, and Terry McLaurin showed a ton of promise in his near 1,000 yard rookie season.

The Redskins took advantage of an opportunity to take a generational talent in Chase Young. They needed someone who could start immediately, and they’ve got that with Young, who probably could have started in the NFL last year.

Chase Young got better every time he stepped onto the field in college. Young tallied up 28.5 sacks over his three seasons at Ohio State and forced 6 fumbles in his final season alone.

It may be a season or two before Dwayne Haskins fully develops, but the rebuild that began last season has taken an important step with Chase Young.
