NFL Draft 2011: Detroit Lions Select Titus Young in the Second Round

I will admit that I had my story written before the Detroit Lions made their pick. I was just sure that they would pull a CB away from the loving arms of the Pittsburgh Steelers with the No. 44 overall pick. The Lions must not have gotten my memo, as they selected electrifying Boise State WR Titus Young.

If the Lions can just keep Matthew Stafford healthy, then the Lions could end up being quite fun to watch on offense. I am sure that the prospect of watching Stafford heave deep balls to Young and superstar Calvin Williams has to be exciting to the Detroit faithful.

This is the second year in a row that Detroit has gotten great value with a late first or early second round pick, as they selected Javhid Best with last year. The youth movement is on Detroit.

For Steelers fans, this is obviously great news, as the Lions had a glaring need at CB. For every team that passes on CB, it is that much more likely that Pittsburgh can snare a good one later in the second round.
