    Apparently this guy was really impressive in the first day of senior bowl practice.. nobody could cover him, this kids stock is soaring and some scouts have compared him to being a mixture of desean jackson and mike wallace..

    This kid could give us that speed we need, trade down to the end of the first round and go get him Ireland!

    What would you guys think of taking him in the late 20s and picking up a 2nd rounder from it?

    He is a bit small, I don't know about a first rounder . . . I mean Desean Jackson was even a second rounder . . . I liked the kid as a possible pick for us in the 3rd round, but late first . . . ehhh, I would pass.

    Kid is real explosive though.

    First round too high for him. Would take him in a heartbeat in the 3rd but I get the feeling he may go late second. He's helped a lot by the success of Desean Jackson. He doesn't really compare to Mike Wallace IMO, Wallace is 6' 200 lbs, Young is almost 30 lbs lighter.

    For whatever reason, I was under the impression he was 2-3 inches shorter than he is. He's definitely an appealing option in the 3rd, but I agree with truth. If McCluster can go at the top of RD 2, Young can go somewhere in RD 2.

    Young has been one of the few college players i got a chance to watch a lot of this season and i love this kid. I know Mayock called him poor man's Desean Jackson, but I feel like he is a bit more consistent. I was hoping Fins would draft him in the 3rd, but if his stock keeps climbing, I can see someone taking him in the 2nd round, some one like the Pats.

    A lot of discussion about him is in the Senior Bowl thread between myself and others. Some mocks have him going as high as second round. I still think his 40-time will be the determining factor as the guy has proven he can catch pretty well.

    I called him a poor-man's Desean Jackson before Mayock. I think he's reading my posts. (Kidding).

    Too early to take in the 1st. But in a trade down scenario, he would definitely be worth a look if we can regain that 2nd round pick. He absolutely fits one of our needs, and would allow all our other WR's to stay in their current roles. We wouldn't need him to be #2 on the depth chart right away, freeing him up to draw favorable matchups as well.

    I would love to see Titus in a Dolphins uniform!

    He has speed, quickness, and hands.

    It was my worst week of the year; but this catch typifies the year he had.

    This happened in the 2009 game versus Fresno. I loved how he didn't quit on the play.

    Titus Young is the best offensive weapon in college football.

    Was not impressed with him in the Senior Bowl, he dropped a pass over the middle and looked tentative in the open field, and was "shuffling" his feet to make people miss. IMHO, we shouldn't waste a draft pick on him when we have Marlon Moore who looks very similar.

    Aside from Hankerson, he was the most impressive WR at the senior bowl. This kid is fast, quick, great hands, and is very explosive. We will essentially kill two birds with one stone (i.e. deep threat & return specialist). I hope we will be lucky enough to pick him. But, i fear after the combine, I think his stock will rise to the 1st round.

    If we trade down in the first I would rather nab hankerson if he's still around.
    I have a hard time believing titus will be a first rounder, but you just never know.

    he certainly fits the explosive pill we keep hearing about?

    Young reminds me of a Pat White caliber player. He's someone that a team will pick up in the second round and could be a gamer, but could also be a bust. The question is whether or not WE want to take that risk/reward. I would love to see us pick up an additional second round choice and get him there.

    He is a good receiver, but I would prefer if we got Hankerson. I really like what I have seen in Hankerson.

    Don't forget that there's still individual workouts and the combine to go. We haven't even seen Torrey Smith yet. If you're looking for a Wallace clone, I think he fits the bill a little better than Young.

    i thought titus performance a lot like the north teams in the game was underwhelming...the qb play didn't help him either...i'd take hankerson over him without thinking twice...i still think young goes somewhere in round 2 though...
