Titus Young
Round 2, Pick 44
Position: WR
Class:  5Sr
School: Boise State
Conference: Western Athletic
HT: 5-11.5
WT: 174
40 Time: 4.43
Biography: "All-Conference selection the past two years. Senior totals included 71/1215/9 at receiver, when he also averaged 23.5 yards on 24 kick returns. Junior totals included receiving numbers of 79/1041/10 with an average of 26.9 yards on 31 kick returns and two more scores."

Positives: "Productive college receiver with a consistent game. Fluid releasing off the line and runs sharp routes, quickly getting into breaks and immediately coming back to the ball on exit. Displays terrific focus and concentration and makes the reception away from his frame. Possesses strong hands, showing the ability to snatch passes from the air. Easily adjusts the errant throw, effortlessly makes the reception downfield, and elusive running after the catch. Reads the defense and settles into the open spot on the field. Sneaky fast and finds a way to get behind opponents. Gives effort blocking downfield and gets solid results."

Negatives: More quick than fast. Erratic workout at the combine. Lacks top size and likely to struggle handling jams or battling at the next level.

Analysis: Young was exceptionally productive the past two seasons and turned in a terrific performance at the Senior Bowl in January. He's a prospect who comes to play on game day and should be a productive third receiver while also being an asset on special teams.

Projection: 2nd
