Chase Young: There Will Be Lots of 'Leeches' if Hometown Redskins Draft Me

Dan Patrick: "Do you care where you get drafted?"
Chase Young: "It's not our choice but I definitely care where I'm going because this is a big moment in my life. Wherever I go I will be the best player I can be."
DP: "Any downside to playing closer to home?"
Young: "There's pros and cons of playing everywhere. There's definitely cons of playing at home. Guys I've talked to around the league have told me to learn how to say no. If I were to be selected by the Redskins there will be a lot of leeches. There will be people around that you don't always want around and I'll just have to learn to say no. That's the big thing I took away from the talks I've had with my big brothers who have already been through it." (Full Interview Above)
