RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Willie Young.

2014

Young proved to be an effective part of the Lions' defensive end rotation last season, notching 47 total tackles, three sacks and two fumble recoveries in 16 games. He was able to parlay that performance into a three-year deal with the Bears. Fellow offseason pickups Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston are the clear-cut top defensive ends in Chicago, but Houston's ability to slide inside and play tackle should open up a decent amount of snaps at end for Young.

2010

Look for Young to provide depth for the Lions' defensive front four.
