From May 15 to July 3, TDActu offers its top 50 NFL players. To get to this ranking, each member of the editorial staff voted for the 50 players who would be on their team to start the upcoming season. These rankings were later compiled and placed in the final 50 places. Opportunity to discuss, but provide 50 profiles for newcomers to the NFL.
Chase Young – Defensive end – Washington
Identity Card : 22 years old – 1 m 96 – 120 kg
Draft: Exam No. 2 in 2020
Profile: Defensive Rookie of the 2020 Season
Statistics 2020: 44 blocks, including 7.5 sacks, 4 forced stumbles and 4 guarded passes
Why is he here?
He was expected at the turn as he was selected as the highest in the draft. In one NFL season, Chase Young has already made everyone agree: this beast is a fierce predator. Its cat qualities that combine power and speed are already feared in the NFL jungle. When faced with Washington, the opposing quarterbacks fear for his presence, thwarting their attack, and even their fans. He is already in this category!
As a teenager he dreamed of joining the FBI to find serial killers. From the state of Ohio awaiting his degree in the criminal field: he is now a hunter.

What is the purpose in 2021?
As king of Savannah. It may not be easy with big cats like Aaron Donald, Nick Posa or DJ Watt, but Chase Young has all the characteristics of a dominant player and is one of the most important positions on the field. If he still has a way to go, he looks set to one day surpass Michael Strahan (Giants / 2001) record of 22.5 sacks in a season.
However, in a team game, personal rewards are important and Chase Young, after winning the trophy for best college defender, will not be in the NFL. But the important thing is the team’s record, and he aims to return to the playoffs to achieve a better safari: against Tampa Bay during the 2020 playoffs, Chase Young could not weigh in on the competition with only 3 tags, and no QB hit. In the uniform section, he has to stick his teeth out to allow his bag to win again.
