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.
