If you watched "The Terminator," the original from 1984, then you're probably familiar with one of the film's most famous scenes.
The Terminator, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, is chasing Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese with a truck in an attempt to assassinate them both. Reese manages to explode the vehicle with the Terminator in it, concluding the chase in a massive and fiery end.
Both Connor and Reese breathe a sigh of relief after they believed to have stopped the terrifying killing machine. But then the cyborg emerged from the wreckage with a chrome skull and red eyes. It's your classic, "Oh come on!!" moment.
Apparently trying to protect your quarterback from Ohio State pass rusher and top draft prospect Chase Young triggers a similar feeling.
In a story by ESPN's Adam Rittenberg and Tom VanHaaren, Indiana football coach Tom Allen compared playing against Young to trying to defeat a big bad villain in an action movie.
"Gosh, everything we try to do, he seems to defeat us," Allen said. "It's like in an action movie. You have a plan to take care of this thing you can't destroy, you think you have him, and then, boom, he comes right through the flames."
Young finished his 2019 season in Columbus with 16.5 sacks, 21 tackles for loss and seven forced fumbles in just 12 games. Like many other teams in the Big Ten, Young terrorized Indiana as well, tallying two sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss in a 51-10 victory for the Buckeyes.
The Redskins currently hold the second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and Chase Young is the overwhelming favorite to come off the board at that spot. If Washington indeed makes Young their pick at No. 2, they should be able to give their opponents a similar feeling Allen has for years to come.
