Titus Young scouting report

Titus Young WR Boise State

Ht: 5’11′

Wt: 174

Strengths:
Explosive receiver with tremendous speed and overall athleticism. Best asset is his ability to make plays after the catch. Experienced on kick and punt returns. Polished route runner who knows how to find the soft spot in coverage. Has the speed to be a serious deep threat.
Weaknesses:
Possibly some character concerns; after an impressive freshman year Young was benched for nearly his entire sophomore season. Reasons for his punishment were never released. Hands are shaky; he’ll drop some easy passes and seems to struggle with fastballs from short distances.
Comments:
Young isn’t your traditional elite receiver prospect due to his lack of size, but more and more teams are running a west coast offense and trying to find an explosive receiver to line up in the slot such as Wes Welker or Percy Harvin. Young compares favorably to Harvin in every aspect of his game (even the minor character concerns). He is explosive off the snap and turns into a running back once the ball is in his hands. His specific skill set isn’t a great fit for everyone, but in the right system he could be an extremely valuable addition who could contribute immediately. His ability to return kicks and punts is an added bonus.
