Chase Young, who was widely regarded as the top overall prospect by the media, made the decision to bypass his senior year at Ohio State in favour of entering the 2020 NFL Draft.
He said that he did not want to waste time being a “combine athlete” and visited the NFL Combine but did not take part in any exercises or drills. Young was one of 58 athletes selected during the draft, which took place virtually as a result of social segregation rules brought up by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Washington Redskins picked him in the second round overall. On July 23, 2020, he agreed to a four-year rookie deal worth $34.56 million.
In the months leading up to the season, Young was seen as the front-runner to win the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award. He had four tackles, a forced fumble, and 1.5 sacks in his NFL debut against the Philadelphia Eagles.
He developed a minor groin injury in Week 3’s game vs the Cleveland Browns and was forced to sit out the following week’s contest versus the Baltimore Ravens.
He became the first rookie in NFL history and just the third player since 1999 to accomplish all of that in a single game in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers, recording a sack, two passes defended a forced fumble and a fumble recovery that he returned 47 yards for a touchdown.
Young led all rookies in sacks with 7.5 for the season. He also forced four fumbles and recovered three others. Young Chase was born on April 14, 1999. He plays defensive end for the Washington Commanders of the National Football League in American football (NFL).
He was a Maryland native who played collegiate football for the Buckeyes at Ohio State University. In 2019, Young’s junior year, he set a school single-season sack record with 16.5 and earned multiple defensive player of the year awards.
He was also selected as a unanimous All-American. A unique accomplishment for a defensive player, he has also been voted Big Ten Male Athlete of the Year and made it as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.
The Klutch Sports Group agency is Young’s agent. He has also starred in episodes of The Shop and Celebrity Family Feud, as well as commercials for Chipotle, Under Armour, and eBay. Young contributed vocals as a guest on the 2021 rapper Wale’s album Folarin II track “Fire & Ice.” He drove the ceremonial pace car for the Federated Auto Parts 400 in 2022.
