Going into the NFL Scouting Combine, scouts expected Boise State WR, Titus Young to run in the 4.3 range. With eyes glued, thumbs anxiously anticipating the stop watch, Young disappointed and ran a 4.53 forty-yard dash. Immediately following the Combine, analyst proclaimed his stock to be down.

Falling short of expectations, Young set out to amend his shortcomings. Yesterday, Boise State held their annual Pro Day. Again, all eyes were on Young. This time, the slight speedster did what he was thought to do, run a blazing forty. Various scouts clocked him between the ranges of 4.27 to 4.41. Young also showed quickness and precision in his route running, and succeeded to catch every ball thrown his way during position drills.

"“I did my personal best,” Young said, per the Idaho Statesman. “I came out here with a chip on my shoulder like (coach Chris Petersen) always teaches.”"

Throughout his career, Titus Young was one of the most successful down field threats in college football. Averaging a whopping 17.1 yards per catch in 2010, Young put fear in the eyes of defensive backs weekly. Not only is Young a threat in the receiving game, but he is also a threat on reverses and on special teams. He finished his career with 3,063 yards, 25 touchdowns, and 204 receptions.

Since speed is the name of the game, NFL teams are very interested in Young. His versatility brings a lot to the table. Already, he has workouts scheduled with the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons, and Chicago Bears. After running an excellent forty, teams looking to procure his services may need to look in the second round.
