Boise State’s Young steals the show at pro day

Titus Young was undeniably the star of the show at Boise State’s pro day on Thursday.

The Broncos’ WR had himself one heck of a workout indoors on FieldTurf before representative from 25 teams. Young (5-foot-11 5/8, 176 pounds) ran 4.39 and 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 4.30 in the short shuttle and 6.85 in the three-cone drill. He had a 35-inch vertical jump to go with a 10-3 broad jump and did eight bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds.

This kid, you could tell, is a natural pass catcher, and he reminds you a lot of Eagles WR DeSean Jackson, except probably without the kick-return ability. Young definitely helped himself a great deal at the pro day.

Other notable prospects to work out:

DB Jeron Johnson (5-10 3/8, 210) — He had a 31-inch vertical, 9-7 broad jump, 4.25 short shuttle, and a 6.95 three-cone drill.

WR Austin Pettis (6-2 5/8, 205) — He kept everything from the combine and had a very good workout.

DB Brandyn Thompson (5-9 1/2, 189) — He ran 4.47 twice in the 40 and worked out.

DL Ryan Winterswyck (6-4 1/8, 271) — He ran 4.89 and 4.91 40s, had a 30½-inch vertical and did 22 bench presses. He was also worked out as a tight end, because he’s athletic enough to play the position.

RB Jeremy Avery (5-8 3/4, 181) — He ran 4.41 and 4.42 40s, had a 38-inch vertical and a 10-5 broad jump, ran a 4.22 three-cone drill and 6.97 short shuttle, and did 20 lifts.
