Chiefs Reportedly Meeting With Boise State WR Titus Young

New, comments

If you had a list of 2011 NFL draft needs for the Kansas City Chiefs, wide receiver would probably be on there someplace. The Chiefs might be looking for someone to plug next to WR Dwayne Bowe so perhaps that's why they're meeting with Boise State WR Titus Young.

Young participated in Boise State's pro day on Thursday and improved on his 40-yard dash time from the NFL Combine running in the 4.4 second range.

"I did my personal best," Young said, per the Idaho Statesman. "I came out here with a chip on my shoulder like (coach Chris Petersen) always teaches."

The paper reports that the 5'11", 174-pound Young has worked out for the Chicago Bears and has meetings planned with the Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons.

He's expected to be a second or third round pick in the 2011 NFL draft. He's also signed an endorsement contract with adidas so he'll be a teammate of Chiefs S Eric Berry either way.

Reps from 22 NFL teams were in attendance Thursday at Boise State's pro day (and we can't say for certain if the Chiefs were one of them).
