Things sure are looking up for the Redskins. The team has a franchise quarterback in Dwayne Haskins and now they have a generational defensive talent in Chase Young.

I watched a lot of Young’s reps this past season for the Buckeyes. The man is an absolute monster on the field.

He’s a terrifying player on the defensive end of the ball. He’s a freak of nature when it comes to disrupting the offense, and I say that as a guy who watched him brutalize the Badgers offensive line during the regular season.

Now, he’s taking those talents to the NFL, where I’m sure he’ll be a star. If you’re a fan of the Redskins, you have to be pumped right now.

Congrats to Young on a hell of a college career, and best of luck going forward with the Redskins!
