08/10/2013 - TOP GEORGIA TECH PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 2. CB Louis Young (6-0, 201, 4.43)...After a sophomore season that put him on the NFL radar, Young took a step back in 2012 as a junior, struggling with off-field issues, injuries and maddening inconsistencies. Nonetheless, he has intriguing raw talent and is determined to play his best football as a senior in order to show scouts he has next level ability.

Young has a good-sized frame for the position and doesn't shy away from contact, but he needs to clean up his tackling technique, too often just throwing his shoulder and getting lazy. He has a nose for the ball and goes after it in the air, matching up well with receivers to break up the play at the catch point. Young needs to stay healthy and stay level-headed from kickoff to the final score and if he can do that, he should be able to establish himself as one of the better cornerbacks in the conference and possible draft pick. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
