Young's deal is slightly more than the deal fellow Buckeye Nick Bosa – last year's No. 2 pick at the same position – signed last year. Bosa's deal of $33.5 million over the course of the deal and included a signing bonus of $22.4 million.
Young is also the highest draft pick to sign a deal so far as Cincinnati's Joe Burrow, the No. 1 overall pick, has yet to ink his rookie deal.
