Gotta admit, I didn’t see this one coming. However, both Ted Thomson and Mike McCarthy were reported to be very high on Young when he was coming out of the draft. In fact there were indications they would have taken Young over A.J. Hawk if he had been available at the number 5 pick in the first round.
Young is a guy with a ton of talent that just needs to get his head screwed on straight. If anyone can get him turned around its Mike McCarthy and his staff.
