Scottie Young Jr. S West Virginia Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Transitions well from coverage to close on the ball. Strong hands, quick reactions for the interceptions.
  • Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • He is aggressive in run support, with a physical mentality, but struggles to break down space and leaves production on the field.
  • Tough and scrappy with forceful nature to be physical at all levels of the field. Has good bulk on his frame to be aggressive in run support.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Has suspect instincts in coverage and needs to show better pre snap recognition.
  • Lacks the timed speed to mirror and maintain contact downfield. Loses the ball on slow-developing plays and has a tendency to reach and grab when he gets antsy.
  • Has only average long speed and lacks the natural change-of-direction skills and vertical ability to play blanket man coverage. Lacks natural explosion to make up for false steps.
