Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about LANDON YOUNG: Kentucky, 6061 310 5.18. Two-year starter, Lexington, KY. Team captain and first-team All SEC by the conference coaches. Appeared in 49 career games with 26 starts, including 24 at left tackle. Mature long torso tackle who plays with good knee band. A consistent and effective run and pass blocker. Has the power and explosiveness to decleat a defender. Smart and heady in his play. Good body control with the ability to recover. Redirects and shifts weight quickly to defeat his target. Controls his man with punch, placement, and extension. Consistent to make mental adjustments on the move. Line coaches will love Young because what you see is what you get – someone you can count on. Plays in a leverage position. Natural body control. Plays square with a good base and balance in pass protection. Quick reactions. Light feet with finish ability. Ability to quick position a defender. Good effort and hustle to make a second block. Lateral agility and quickness to secure defenders away from the play. Solid lower body and power. Can anchor versus power. Lateral range to block the edge. Sidebar: Just two days after Kentucky offensive line coach John Schlarman passed away following a two-year bout with cancer, the Wildcats found a creative and touching way to honor his memory. In their 38-35 win over Vanderbilt, Kentucky took the field for the first play of the game with just 10 players, leaving the left guard spot open. The offense took the delay of game penalty (which Vanderbilt promptly declined), and senior offensive lineman Landon Young came onto the field wearing jersey No. 65. Young usually wears No. 67, but changed to honor Schlarman, who wore No. 65 during his playing days at Kentucky. Seventh round/PFA. (A- 33 3/4, H-10 1/8, BP-34, 10-1.72).
