Top defensive ends in the ACC
May 21, 2009
It's never too early for some position rankings for ACC football. ESPN's Heather Dinich recently put together her list for the top defensive ends in the conference.
N.C. State's Willie Young topped the charts. Of the five ends she mentions, Young is the only player that resides here in the triangle.
Young led the Wolfpack in sacks in 2008 with 6.5 sacks. He recovered 2 fumbles, intercepted a pass, and blocked a kick. His 58 tackles last season were a strong number for a down lineman.
A sure-fire NFL draft-pick barring injury, Young is a speedy player at his position at 6-4 250 pounds.
