This coming NFL season should be a memorable one. They almost always are. You never know the main storylines that are going to surface, but we can guess what players and teams could break out in the coming year.

On that note, NFL.com published an interesting piece that looks at nine things we can all get on the bandwagon for in 2021, and there’s a former Ohio State game-wrecker mentioned. Chase Young might have taken a few weeks to warm up, but once he did, the Washington Football Team rookie became a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks and offensive coordinators through the end of the year.

And, according to Adam Schein, he expects Young to be even better this coming season. So much so, that he believes everyone should take notice now and jump on the bandwagon.

What Schein Says

“Young was the Defensive Rookie of the Year, and I still don’t think he got enough love. This dude is an absolute force of nature off the edge. This coming season, he’s going to be one of the top five defensive players in the league. Young sacked the quarterback 7.5 times last year. He will double that — at least — in 2021.

“With Young headlining a ferocious front, Washington has a true identity. Opposing teams — and especially opposing quarterbacks — are not going to enjoy games against this group.”
