Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma

Ryan Broyles makes the most of his diminutive stature with quickness and above average route running. He may have great production at Oklahoma, but he's not a sure bet draft prospect. He'll need to continue working on his ability to separate from defenders and find openings in zone coverage.

His future will be in the slot. One trait that's hard to define is that Broyles is a very smooth runner. He can change direction without losing speed and he can really illustrate this on short slants and drags over the middle if the quarterback can lead the pass correctly.

Given his small size, his straight-line speed is average. He can create mismatches against linebackers and safeties, but lacks the high-end speed to stretch the field. There have also been some injury concerns due to his sleek frame. Broyles is at his best when he can juke or make a small cut in order to create separation. Teams that focus on bumping him through his route can throw off his timing since he doesn't deal well with physical play.
