The Lions Select WR Titus Young with the 44th Pick

Many Lions’ fans are going to wonder about this pick because the Lions have needs at other positions that had players available.  But, the Lions brass really wants to blow the lid off this offense and a vertical threat like Titus Young gives them three players that can go 80 yards at any time.

My biggest knock on Young is his small frame which could open him up to durability issues, but his big play ability is not easy to pass up.  He has natural hands, he can help on special teams, reverses and most importantly he will play outside in the three receiver formations.

Burleson will play in the slot with CJ and Young on the outside.  Imagine a defense’s options when you have to defend that kind of speed on the outside with the savvy of Burleson and the size of Pettigrew over the middle and Best coming out of the backfield.

The pick won’t fill any needs defensively but it opens a host of options on offense.
