Ryan Broyles Scouting Report
Ryan Broyles
Ryan Broyles - Oklahoma (HT: 5-11 - WT: 183)
Combine 40: N/A - Position Rank: 5 of 10

Positives: Hands are like glue, catches everything around him... Good at plucking the ball out of the air with his hands, rarely lets the ball get into his body... Led all Oklahoma receivers with a bench press of 310 pounds... Willing to make the tough catch over the middle... Most effective when working from the slot, makes a lot of catches within 1-10 yards from the line of scrimmage... Good at finding the soft spot in zone coverage... Very shifty in the open field, displays a short area burst and good vision... hard to tackle after he makes the catch, elusive... Crazy production, posted 131 catches for 1,622 yards and 14 touchdowns this year... Set seven Oklahoma receiving records in 2010... Great punt returner, active career leader from BCS schools in punt return yards... Still improving, was recruited to Oklahoma as a cornerback and redshirted his freshman year to learn wide receiver.

Negatives: A bit undersized, might struggle to get off the line of scrimmage in the NFL... Has a tendency to be bumped off his routes... Appears to be more quick than fast... Suffered a collar bone injury in 2009... Minor character concerns, was arrested his freshman year for stealing gasoline... Oklahoma's pass heavy offense inflated his stats a bit... Limited upside because of his size, will be a better number two option in the NFL than number one... Not a run blocker, seems to give up on his blocks too early.
