Chase Young has been linked to the Redskins since the start of the 2019 NFL season. As the Redskins began piling up losses and drastically kept moving up draft slots, the possibility of Young in burgundy and gold was no longer a pipe dream.
The Ohio State star decided not to participate in workouts during the NFL Scouting Combine this past week in Indianapolis but made sure to make an appearance to answer questions as well as meet with teams.
Young was asked by ESPN's Josina Anderson which team's interview stood out the most to him and his answer won't surprise you.
"The Redskins," Young insisted.
Young then disclosed that he met with Redskins owner Dan Snyder and he has been talking to his ex-teammate Ohio State teammate Dwayne Haskins during the draft process.
"(Dwayne Haskins) wants me to come play with him (in Washington), Young said. "I've known Dwayne since high school and I know that he is working (hard)."
Young spoke with media Thursday and answered questions about potentially playing in D.C.
When asked about the Washington Redskins, Young said he grew up watching his hometown team.
“I always watch the Redskins,” he said, adding he was a fan of Sean Taylor and Clinton Portis.
“Playing for my hometown people would definitely be a blessing," Young added. “Growing up in the area, it would mean a lot.”
With LSU QB Joe Burrow expected to be selected No. 1 overall by the Cincinnati Bengals, the Redskins are in a terrific spot to potentially land Young with the second pick and have him terrorize opposing offenses for years to come.
