Barring a massive upset, Ohio State defensive end Chase Young will be the first non-quarterback taken in the 2020 NFL Draft. In just three seasons with the Buckeyes, Young established himself as a dominant force.

Young will not participate in drills at the NFL Scouting Combine this week, but he did go to Indianapolis to get his measurements taken and interview with teams and media. His official measurements were recorded earlier today.

Young is exactly just a shade under 6-foot-5 and a chiseled 264 pounds. That's more than adequate for a prized pass rusher.

We already knew Young "looked" the part of a future NFL star. This just proves it.

If you want a look at how much Young developed over the last few years, just check out how he looked as a high school junior back in 2016 compared to how he looks now.

Every mock draft anticipates that Young will go No. 2 overall to the Washington Redskins, and that's still the safe. However, there's always a chance Washington trades out of that spot and a quarterback-needy team moves in, or the Redskins could even stun the world by taking a quarterback of their own second overall.

Either way, Young won't be waiting long to hear his name called on April 23.
