2011 NFL Draft Results: Detroit Lions Choose Titus Young

With the 44rd pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions picked Titus Young, a wide receiver from Boise State. Young is quick, and as good a prospect at the slot receiver position as this draft class offered; he should give Matthew Stafford a playmaker and a deep threat.

Young joins first round pick Nick Fairley in Detroit. The Lions have been solidifying their defense under Jim Schwartz, but picking both Fairley and Young shows that Detroit is looking to add talent to a roster that had lacked it for so long.

For more on the pick and Young's new home, head over to SB Nation's Pride of Detroit.

The second round of the 2011 NFL draft is underway. Day two of the draft will feature the second round with seven minutes between each pick and the third round with five minutes between each pick. Make sure you check out our recap of the first round draft picks, the updated NFL draft order and our second round mock draft. SB Nation's NFL draft hub and Mocking The Draft will have all NFL draft updates.
