2015 Community Projections: LB Taylor Young

New, comments

Moving through the defense, we've now arrived at Baylor's freshman All-American LB, Taylor Young.

Being completely honest, if you would have asked me a year ago whether we'd be doing Projections today for now-sophomore linebacker Taylor Young, I would have asked you if you were just plain crazy. But now that a year has gone by in which Young earned Freshman All-American honors, and things have radically changed. Initially, the plan was that we would project for either Young or Aiavion Edwards, who had the starting role at OLB last year before being limited by injuries. But the more I thought about it, the less sense that made to me. If, for some reason, Young doesn't start at OLB, we can always just throw these projections out rather than make things unnecessarily complicated.

Young's stats from last year ...

Defense G Solo Asst. Total Sacks/Yds TFL/Yards FF FR P Def Int/Yds
2013 0 -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
2014 13 58 34 92 4 / 38 8.5 / 45 2 -- 3 1 / 37
TOTAL 13 58 34 92 4 / 38 8.5 / 45 2 -- 3 1 / 37

There should have been a TD at the end of that INT, but alas ...

Anyway, here's what I need.

TACKLES / TACKLES FOR LOSS / SACKS / TURNOVERS CAUSED

"Turnovers caused" includes fumbles and interceptions as one stat.

You have until game time on 9/4 to get your projections in for this year. After that, the threads will automatically close. Here's what we've done so far:

Monday, 8/10: QB Seth Russell
Tuesday, 8/11: RB Shock Linwood

Wednesday, 8/12: WR Corey Coleman

Thursday, 8/13: WR K.D. Cannon

Friday, 8/14: TEs Tre'von Armstead & LaQuan McGowan

Monday, 8/17: DT Andrew Billings
Tuesday, 8/18: DE Shawn Oakman
Wednesday, 8/19: LB Grant Campbell

As always, please KEEP ALL DISCUSSION IN THE DISCUSSION FANPOST, where you can also find the remaining schedule for our projections. So far, we haven't changed anything, and I don't know that we will.

Happy projecting!
