Ravens draft Tavon Young in 4th round

Tavon young

Tavon Young is an interesting prospect. At just 5-foot-9, 183-pounds, he likely scared many teams away, but he was a tough shutdown cornerback at Temple. Young plays bigger than his size and is a hard tackler who likes to get physical and rip the ball out of the receivers’ hands and arms. First round draft pick Paxton Lynch did not

Last year the Ravens’ secondary was horrible, so with the move of Lardarius Webb to free safety and the unfortunate death of Tray Walker, adding a cornerback was a high priority. It is actually a surprise that they did not draft one earlier but Young can have an early impact.

Still, because of his size he is limited to being at best a slot corner, using his speed and quickness to keep up with smaller and quick receivers; a job that right now belongs to Kyle Arrington, who struggled in his first season with the Ravens. Former third round pick Terrence Brooks has also been worked in as the nickle corner throughout his time with the Ravens.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
