NFL teams are not caring two cents about Bryce Young’s height right now.
He is winning coaches, scouts, general managers, and owners over with his poise, confidence, leadership, and football intelligence in team interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine. NFL insiders Dov Kleiman and Jordan Schultz are reporting Young has been “sensational” in team meetings. Schultz, per sources, is saying teams look at Young’s football acumen as “off the charts.” He dominated the Southeastern Conference in two seasons as a starting quarterback for Alabama football.
Bryce Young has been sensational in draft meetings, according to league sources who’ve met with him. Young’s football acumen is off the charts, as one executive explained to me. As is his ability to understand advanced coverages, even ones that he’s yet to see. @theScore pic.twitter.com/N3YjyNYOVp

Young recorded 4,872 passing yards and 47 passing touchdowns in 2021, both are single-season school record marks.
He delivered the program its first Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback. Young tossed for 8,200 passing yards and 79 touchdown passes in a conference that has monsters on defense. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Chicago Bears are becoming more interested in trading the No. 1 overall pick. The Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts, and Carolina Panthers are open for business. All four teams need a quarterback and are willing to make a deal with Chicago.

Jim Irsay, the owner of the Colts, has stated how good Young is. DeMeco Ryans, head coach of the Texans, called Young ‘outstanding’ as a quarterback. Things are about to get interesting as Young has found a different way to capture attention at Lucas Oil Stadium.
