Thank you … I was going to point this out as well. I’m not so sure he’s the second best prospect in this draft. I like the kid but … is he a fit for the MP defense? … I don’t think he is.
He’s a little small for a DE and the Lions passed on several pass rushers last year of similar size and build. Brian Burns being one of them. MP likes DE’s with size who can contain. I believe Young would be wasted in this defense. AJ. Epenesa would probably be a better fit for the MP defense.
Honestly I believe that if he was on the board the Lions would pass on him. I wouldn’t but I believe they would.
So to answer the OP. I think there’s zero chance we would trade up to get him.
