Ryan Broyles WR Oklahoma #85 Ht: 5’10″Wt: 192   Strengths: Good hands; catches away from his body and quickly secures the ball and turns upfield. Explosive runner with the ball in his hands. Shows good vision and has the agility to make guys miss in the open field. Does a nice job adjusting to the ball in the air. A good all-around athlete; great body control when going up for a pass in traffic. Plenty of experience in the slot. Frequently used on screens to take advantage of his ability after the catch. Weaknesses: Lacks the breakaway speed to be a serious deep threat. Limited height and very average leaping ability makes it tough to get him the ball downfield in traffic. An elusive runner, but not real tough; will go down quickly on contact and will even shy away from hits, going to the ground or out of bounds early. Can be thrown off his route fairly easily by more physical corners in press coverage. Probably limited to a slot receiver role at the next level. Arrested in 2007 for attempting to steal gasoline from a closed gas station. Missed time with a broken shoulder blade in 2009. Suffered a torn ACL in 2011. Comments: Broyles was an explosive playmaker at Oklahoma, but he doesn’t quite have the size or speed to be an elite prospect. The most concerning part of this game is the lack of physical play. Given his relatively modest speed, NFL corners won’t be shy about jamming him at the line of scrimmage which will hinder his ability to break free. However, he does have very good hands and is a polished runner after the catch, making him a potential weapon in the slot as a 3rd or 4th option. Videos: 2011 vs Missouri
