College: North Carolina State (7th round, 2010)

What he adds: Another versatile defensive end who can move around, rush the passer and has room for growth. GM Phil Emery lauds Young’s ability to use his length to create leverage and loves his "old-school" toughness and work ethic.

Pressing question: With greater opportunity, can he break through? Young waited his time behind Kyle Vanden Bosch and Cliff Avril during his first three NFL seasons. Last season, in 15 starts, he showed upside and an ability to hurt quarterbacks. Improving on his 3-sack total from 2013 is a must.
