Los Angeles Rams EDGE Trevon Young

(On how it feels like to be drafted by the Rams)

“It’s such a big relief. I’m so honored and feel so blessed to be part of that organization. I know this organization has some big things ahead of them.”

(On if he felt confident that he would be drafted by a team since it was getting later into the draft)

“To be honest, with my situation, I really didn’t know it was going to happen. I’ve honestly been sick all day just not knowing what was going to happen. But, to finally get that call, I can’t even explain the feeling. It’s so great.”

(On if he operated mostly at a three-point stance and how confident he is as an outside linebacker in this scheme)

“Yeah, in college I had my hand down most of the time. But, I feel like I’m a versatile player. With practice, I’ll be able to be just as effective or more effective coming out of a two-point stance or whatever they ask me to do.”

(On if he played in a 4-3 defensive scheme)

“Yeah, I was in a 4-3.”

(On how he thinks he’ll fit in Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips’ scheme)

“I feel like I’m going to be a pass rusher. What I bring to the team is putting pressure on the quarterback or whatever they ask me to do, I’m willing to do. So, I’m ready to go.”

(On getting the call after going from high school to community college to Louisville)

“I know most people don’t know a lot about me and my road here and where I come from. I’ve been through so much to get to this point. To finally get this call and be a part of an organization like the Rams is more than a dream and more than what I asked for.”
