3. A Big Apple chase
Okay, we talked about the possibility of Tua Tagovailoa heading to Washington. Now, let’s turn our attention to the other rival, the New York Giants.
Let’s say the Redskins land Tagovailoa, and somehow, someway, defensive end Chase young drops to number four, where the Giants are on the clock. Dear Cowboys Nation, this would be a problem.
First, the Redskins land their guy in Tagovailoa, which probably means they found a trade partner for Dwayne Haskins. Now, Young drops to NYC?
The six-foot-five, Ohio State Buckeyes product, turns 21 next month. He played three seasons with the Buckeyes. Chase Young took home some serious awards in 2019.
To name a few, he was named First-team All-Big Ten, Unanimous All-American and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy (finishing fourth in voting).
For his career at Ohio State, he had 98 total tackles, eight forced fumbles, eight pass deflections, and 30.5 sacks. In 2019 alone, he accumulated 16.5 sacks and six forced fumbles.
Chase Young will be a disruptor in the NFL, and he might be heading to the NFC East to face the Dallas Cowboys twice a year. Will the former Buckeyes star play with the G-Men in the Big Apple or will he dress in burgundy and gold with the Redskins?
One final note: Young is from Hyattsville, MD. According to Apple Maps, 6.7 miles separates the City of Hyattsville from FedExField. He played quarterback and linebacker at St. Vincent Pallotti High School, located in Laurel, Maryland. He was also a basketball player, which stretches his athletic prowess.
At Ohio State, Chase Young was teammates with Nick Bosa. Bosa was the second overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, going to the San Francisco 49ers. Young figures to go early as well, so look out Cowboys Nation!
