Overview:

Titus Young has been climbing people’s draft boards after his performance at the Senior Bowl. He is incredibly quick, but that doesn’t mean he is fast. He reaches top gear quickly but when at full speed, his speed is pretty average. While this is ok in the college game, he may have some difficulty translating that to the NFL. He is at his best working in space and making things happen after the catch. He’s got some question marks and his game is a little difficult to project to the NFL(comparing him to DeSean Jackson and Percy Harvin are taking the easy way out), but he should be able to make an impact right away as a returner and on plays designed to get him the ball in space.
