Former Ohio State pass-rusher Chase Young plans to skip workout drills at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, sources told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The consensus top defensive prospect in the class will reportedly take part in interviews and medicals at the event, which started Sunday and ends March 2.

Young will also participate in position drills at the Ohio State pro day March 25, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 6-foot-5, 265-pound defensive end was expected to be among the most impressive athletes at the combine but the consensus top-three pick may want to mitigate risk ahead of the draft.

Young broke the Buckeyes' single-season sack record in 2019 with 16.5 during his junior year. theScore's latest mock draft has the Washington Redskins selecting the pass-rusher with the No. 2 pick.
