Newest 49ers lineman Chase Young considered ‘undisciplined player’ by Commanders: report

Washington Commanders fans were shocked to see not only Montez Sweat traded before the NFL deadline on Tuesday, but 2020 No. 2 overall pick Chase Young as well. 

Young landed with the San Francisco 49ers for a reported compensatory third-round pick, bolstering a defensive front that was already wreaking havoc on teams this season. In fact, many viewed it as a steal, because the Niners only had to give up a third-rounder, compared to Sweat’s second-round pick price with the Chicago Bears. 

However, the San Francisco Chronicle reports Young as someone coaches and others within the organization viewed as “an undisciplined player who developed bad habits such as deviating from assignments in an effort to make splash plays.”

With the 49ers on a bye this week, Young has ample time to get acclimated to his new team that includes an old Ohio State teammate, Nick Bosa, on the defensive line.
