In doing so, Young says he thinks he's got an advantage over other prospects at his position.

He's done some of the things that, say, the Patriots or Chiefs or Broncos would ask him to, so chances are that would speed up his development to the pro game.

"As team we’d just watch a game on television, and hear a play or see a call and say, ‘Hey, we run that'," Young said. "So there’s definitely some crossover, but an NFL playbook’s a lot more in-depth, a lot bigger and that’s something I’m gonna have to adjust to. But I do think have a leg-up in that aspect."

Now, where so many prospects have plenty to prove this week, because Young started half-a-hundred college games, the book on him is probably closer than being complete.

"There’s a lot on my resume, there’s a lot of games to watch," Young said. "I have to show I can play with elite athletes day-in and day-out. But when you have that much tape, there’s not a lot of room to hide. I think just showing the consistency, against that top level talent, is what I need to do."
