Ohio State superstar pass rusher Chase Young is expected to be picked No. 2 overall by the Washington Redskins in the 2020 NFL Draft after the Cincinnati Bengals go with Joe Burrow. His stock is already sky high, and it could grow even higher at the 2020 combine if he dominates the drills out in Indianapolis.
Chase Young NFL Combine Bench Press Predictions
The bench press could be a perfect chance for Young to strut his stuff. Expect to see somewhere between 25-35 reps of 225 pounds for someone with his freakish upper body strength.
Chase Young NFL Combine 40 Yard Dash Predictions
Young's speed is one of the hallmarks of his game. He should beat Nick Bosa's 4.79 mark from last year and end up somewhere in the high 4.7s, but getting into the 4.6s, which is entirely possible, would certify him as a freak of nature.
Chase Young NFL Combine Vertical Jump Predictions
For a player with his lower body power and explosion, Young could conceivably jump anywhere in the 32-38 inch range, which would be among the top performing edge rushers.
Chase Young NFL Combine Broad Jump Predictions
115-120 inches is where Young wants to shoot for. That would put him among the best lineman and near what some of the better cornerbacks jumped in 2019.
Chase Young NFL Combine 3-Cone Drill Predictions
The bane of DK Metcalf, Young could really show the improvements he made in his agility at the 3-cone drill. Anything around 7.1-7.4 seconds would be passable for a player of his caliber.
Chase Young NFL Combine Shuttle Run Predictions
If he runs a 4.2 in the shuttle run, that might break the internet. The 4.3-4.6 range is the average for defensive lineman Young will probably find himself in.
If Young hits all of these barometers in Indianapolis, he isn't leaving the Top 3 of the 2020 draft -- not that he's projected to dip below that threshold to begin with.
