Boise State’s Titus Young: Watching the skill positions on Monday, Young is the one player that stood out above everyone else. I can agree with the notes from the NFP’s Wes Bunting, because the speed—top end speed—was evident down the field. Young showed the ability to stem his route with a vertical release and then separate when the ball was in the air. He ran past people all day. But don’t mark him down as just a deep ball guy. This is the type of prospect that would be a fit in an offense like Andy Reid’s in Philly or Mike Martz’s in Chicago—where the underneath crossing routes come into play. You want receivers that can work away from a defender’s leverage and make a play with the ball in the open field. Young displayed that ability on Monday.

However, as good as Paul was it’s going to be tough for any senior wide out this week to play at the level of Boise State receiver Titus Young. Young not only is an out and out burner who has the ability to consistently get up to full speed quickly and separate vertically down the field. But, he’s a really savvy route runner who is sudden in and out of his breaks and does a nice job changing speeds in order to separate. Reminds me of a more polished/savvy version of Johnny Knox.
