Lions WR Titus Young caught 25 touchdown passes during his career at Boise State, 23 of which were 20 yards or longer and 16 from 40 yards or more. Young's role will be to play the No. 3 receiver, on the outside opposite of Calvin Johnson.
The Lions need a speed player who can threaten deep and occupy a deep safety, opening the field for Detroit's other receivers. It's a role that Young thinks he can fill well.
