2012 Rookie WRs: Ryan Broyles, Detroit Lions
By Jeff Tefertiller
August 1st, 2012

Broyles had a very productive career in the Oklahoma Sooners offense, averaging roughly 100 yards and a touchdown per game. The ACL tear mid-year last season, however, put a disappointing end to that career. He is more quick than fast and profiles as a slot receiver with great hands. Broyles has a very good understanding of defenses and knows how to create separation in the middle of the field. Still not back to full speed as of yet, Broyles may start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list (PUP) to begin the season. He is a much better dynasty prospect than redraft. This is likely Nate Burleson's last season in Detroit, and Broyles will be fully recovered by 2013. He could be a star.
