2005 NFL Draft
Projected to be a third-round selection, Young was listed as the No. 8 offensive guard prospect in the 2005 NFL Draft by Sports Illustrated. As of 2013[update], Young is one of only fifteen prospects to repeat more than 40 lifts at the 225-pound (102 kg) bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine since 1999. While noted for his upper body strength, his lack of a "dominant base" was criticized by NFL scouts.
