Each year, a handful of players help boost their draft stock with an exceptional week at the Senior Bowl.

While it’s early in the process, Boise State wide receiver Titus Young looks like one of those players this season.

The reviews for Young’s performance in Mobile have been glowing. Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune calls Young the “unanamious” best receiver in Mobile. NFL Network’s Mike Mayock compared Young to DeSean Jackson for his speed, playmaking ability, and some of the maturity questions that hurt Jackson’s stock two years.

Young was listed No. 4 in Mayock’s initial top-five rankings at wide receiver. He’s someone that could help in the return game and at receiver as a rookie.
