Darrel Young Is A Truck

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 30, 2011 – 10:00 am

Fullback is a position that hasn’t been a concern for Redskins fans since Mike Sellers returned to town in 2004.  The team still has depth behind him in Darrel Young, a one-time linebacker that has made the switch to the offensive side of the ball.

Some things Young does very well.  When he runs, it looks like a runaway train, and I feel sorry for any safeties and cornerbacks that he blocks.  His hands still need time to develop though, which was noted during a running back screen-pass drill:

In the Shanahan offense, the fullback is active in the passing game.  If Young is the heir apparent at fullback, he will need to work on his catching skills.

    Young can catch, the guy throwing just made a crap pass.

    Perhaps, but he still has to catch the crap passes too. Unfortunately for him, it stood out against the other backs in the drill. This group has some pretty good hands

    He’s a hard runner, give him the ball and he’ll show you what gas hes using
