Sam Young

Young started at Notre Dame for four years. He has potential as a Right Tackle, but I do not see him playing at a high level on the Left side, as he does not have elite athletic ability.

I keep hearing of his "potential." My questions are:

If he started four years at Notre Dame, shouldn't he be ready to play?

If he has that much potential, why didn't Wade and Jason get him on the field more this year?

I hope you're all correct in your assessments of this kid. I hope he turns into a player, but at this point, he's merely a backup RT and nothing more.

Young needed to get "NFL Strong".

His footwork was backward in protection. In college most teams protect --outside foot/inside foot...in the NFL you have to go Inside/Outside....to pick up counter moves.
