RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – The Washington Redskins hope their Chase for a defensive anchor is over.
Washington selected Ohio State defensive end Chase Young with the second overall pick in Thursday’s NFL Draft.

Young is a native of Upper Marlboro, Md., and won both the Nagurski and Bednarik Awards as a junior before declaring early for the draft.

He gives the Redskins an elite pass rusher. Young recorded 30.5 sacks in his three years for the Buckeyes, including 16.5 last season.
