Titus Young  

Height: 5-11   Weight: 174   Age: 28

Born: 8/21/1989 Los Angeles , CA

College: Boise State

Experience: Season









Draft 2011

Pick No.44

Selected By: Detroit Lions

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 12 (44)

Pick Analysis: Young possesses the makeup and run-after-the-catch ability of an NFL slot receiver who could also contribute in the return game. Put a few really impressive statistical seasons on his resume. Has the quickness and speed to get open underneath but route-running is still somewhat or a work in progress. Was not being covered by elite defensive backs on a week-to-week basis. Size is an issue, as more physical defensive backs can out-muscle him, and limits his downfield big-play potential. Has some off-the-field and on-field behavioral issues that must be checked out. However, Young's production and "make you miss" talent will likely land him in the middle rounds.
