That player is none other than Kent State cornerback Usama Young. Young has a set of physical skills that can't be taught combined with good flexibility and size. Usama is 5'11", 196 lbs., and was clocked running the 40 yard dash between 4.36 and 4.4 seconds. Young boasts a 43 inch vertical leap, with a broad jump of nearly 11 feet.
As reported by Tim Yotter, the Jaguars not only visited him at Kent State's pro day, but have also invited him to Jacksonville for a private workout. Scouts say that Young can start his career as a nickel/dime back, and eventually be able to move into a starting role with some good coaching. Young is expected to be a late, second day pick and could challenge either Terry Cousin or Dee Webb for a roster spot if selected by the Jaguars.
