"2012 NFL Draft prospect, Ryan Broyles"Ryan Broyles

Oklahoma

Ht. 5-10 Wt. 188

Strengths:  Ryan Broyles is an ideal slot receiver that has the savvy to work the underneath.  He sees coverage as well as anyone and knows when/where to sit down.  Not overly fast, Broyles is a quick twitch athlete that has the burst to get separation at the next level.  He’s a precise route runner that can be counted onto be in the right position all the time.  He’s effective with the ball in his hands in space as he has some short area quickness.

Weaknesses:  Broyles won’t blow by anyone with his speed.  He’s small in stature and struggles to beat the jam at the line of scrimmage.  Tore his ACL late in the season and isn’t likely to be ready for the start of camp.  Doesn’t track the ball well vertically for someone as seasoned as he is.  Low potential…what you see is what you get.

Bottom Line:  Ryan Broyles is one of the most productive receivers in college football history.  The combination of his injury and low ceiling should relegate him to a mid round pick.  If he lasts into the fourth round, someone will be getting a good value that could contribute immediately in the slot.    

Draft Projection:  4
