2023 NFL draft: fans happy about Cameron Young, NT
There’s your interior defensive line help, 12’s. Despite the Seattle Seahawks’ biggest need being the middle of their defensive front, Seattle waited until the fourth round to address this position.
But address it they did with a large young man by the name of Cameron Young from Mississippi State. The Bulldog standout isn’t just a defensive lineman, he was specifically identified as a nose tackle. In this new defensive system, this is exactly what Seattle needs.
As mentioned, the Seahawks waited to take on the defensive front, but the fan reaction is overwhelmingly positive.

The #Seahawks drafted a nose tackle!!! Cameron Young has crazy arm length (34.5 inch arms). Pretty much a run stuffing guy on early downs, but honestly that's what they needed. pic.twitter.com/M2pHdZvPYk

Witherspoon, Hall & now Cameron Young. Seattle is adding a lot of good young players on that defense.

Another home-run pick for the #Seahawks. Had a high R3 grade on Cameron Young. One of the stars of the Senior Bowl who, like Abe Lucas a year ago, strangely got no attention. Powerful, long arms, can play across the line. Better than some of the DT's who went earlier.

AFC GM on new Seahawks NOSE TACKLE Cameron Young: "STOUT. TOUGH. OLD SCHOOL. FROM A DIFFERENT ERA."
Yes, he's listed as a NOSE TACKLE.

I liked the way Cameron Young struck guys in the run game. Solid knockback. More suited as a power stepper. Say as a 3-tech for the #Seahawks. The Mississippi State man tested well: 6ft3 3/8, 304lbs, 1.73s 10 yard split, 28.5” vertical, 9-foot broad. Found the pass rush lacking.
