The Baltimore Ravens drafted Tavon Young 104th overall in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft. Young played in Baltimore for four of the last six years. He missed the 2017 season due to a torn ACL and missed the 2019 season due to a neck injury. Then in 2020, he played in two games before tearing the same ACL and missing the rest of the season.
