Comparing Titus Young and Torrey Smith

Just a quick post here on the news that Titus Young has been claimed off of waivers by the St. Louis Rams.  Young may be an interesting name if for no other reason than that he could see the ball more in STL than he did in DET.  However, I thought it might be interesting to compare Young’s market share numbers from college with the numbers posted by Torrey Smith (using the app you can play with here), who was the next receiver off the board after the Lions chose Young.

Here are the two receivers based on their share of team yards.

It’s interesting because sometimes when teams choose the less accomplished player, they are doing it because they’re opting to draft physical attributes.  But Torrey Smith is bigger than Young by a decent amount and Smith ran just as fast as Young.  The Lions’ selection of Young is kind of a head scratcher then because small/fast guys are not in short supply on NFL teams.  For instance, the Colts only spent the 92nd pick of the 2012 draft on TY Hilton, whereas the Lions selected Young with the 44th pick of the 2011 draft.
