THE ROAD TO THE DRAFT
Titus Young, WR, Boise State
5-foot-11 1-2, 174 pounds
Draft projection: Second round.
Lowdown: Early in the college season, teammate Austin Pettis got more attention, but Young soon came to be seen as the best pro prospect among the Boise wideouts. Young is quick. He ran a 4.43-second time in the 40-yard dash at the combine workouts. He’s just about the same size as Eagles fleet game-breaker DeSean Jackson (5-10, 175). Young had 71 catches for 1,133 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
On the Jackson comparisons: “I know DeSean Jackson, coming out of college, he did a lot of exciting things for the NFL these past couple of years. I look forward to kind of following his footsteps on the field, and to find a good veteran wide receiver to look up to, and follow his ways, as well.”
