Before Broyles decided not come out quite a few people on the forum gave him a 1st Round projection in their mocks. I have not seen enough of him to give my opinion on the projections, but will he still be considered a 1st Round projection in the 2012 class & have a role other than a Return Specialist in the NFL.

Yea, the guy who has 1 Return Touchdown the past two seasons and 29 Receiving Touchdowns and 220 Receptions, is going to be viewed strictly as a Return Specialist, while getting 1st Round grades.

Does any thought go into your posts before you make them?

Reminds me a lot of Santonio Holmes. As of now I would say he's a late first round pick.

Someone had said something in the Demps thread about him being just a returnman.......Tighten up don't be so quick to jump on my back. I did not watch Broyles at all.

He gets more of a 2nd-3rd round grade to me. He's a great college player, but OU has had a bunch of similar WR's come out who haven't had pro success and that scares me off.

I honestly haven't seen him play, but his system will be questioned. Especially in terms of how many WRs are on the field, routes he runs and types of coverage he faces because of his offense.

Is he anything like Mark Clayton? Mark Clayton was dynamic in that OU system!

Seems very similar, a bit smaller and more quick than fast. He's a great college player no doubt, but he's more of a complimentary guy in the pro's. I'd rate him very similarly to Mark Clayton and he hasn't looked like he was worth his pick.

Don't see him as a first round guy. To me he's gonna be a solid slot guy. Until then, watch the numbers he puts up this year.

IMO he's a 2nd rounder right now. I've seen every game of his, and he has great hands, runs good routes, isn't afraid to go over the middle.
He's quick and can make people miss. I think he'll be a solid WR given the right opportunity in the NFL who could burst out to become a Steve Smith type player.

Which Steve Smith?

I agree, I think late one, more likely early 2

Watch out for the guy in the back #24 DeJuan Miller. He's going to have a HUGE year. I like him going to the Eagles in the mid rounds.

Am I the only one who thinks he will take a tumble on draft day? He's listed at 5'11 and will probably measure in even smaller but he doesn't have elite speed. He probably runs a 4.5x 40 which won't impress at the combine. Small receivers with slow 40's who don't have great hands usually don't get viewed as top prospects. He's more likely to go in the middle rounds in my opinion.

1. His height isn't an issue.
2. Yeah, 4.5 is slow. What did Jerry Rice run? 4.7
3. He has exceptional hands
4. He can find open spots in zones
5. He doesn't shy from contact
6. He does well after the catch

I'm not advocating him to be a sure fire 1st round pick and all godly like, but he's a solid prospect who should be looked at as a 2nd-3rd rounder right now on his play.
I kind of view him to be similar to Eddie Royal, but more production in college.

Eddie Royal was a lot faster and quicker.

He will be a 3rd round guy. Not really impressive in my opinion and doesn't have that elite WR potential.

That Jerry Rice argument is so overused. I guess every 6th round QB is a beast too because of Brady? Come on use some common sense. I wouldn't say he has exceptional hands either. Call it a bold prediction if you want but I honestly expect him to be drafted in rounds 3-5 as opposed to being a borderline first rounder.

+1. OU will always have super-productive WRs in that offense. Broyles will be drafted around where Juaquin Iglesias was drafted.

It's an awful argument. The same can be said for any 4.5 running WR. That doesn't mean they are Jerry Rice or Anquan Boldin, it usually just means they're slow.

When is the last time a 5'10/5'11 WR with a 4.5 40 has been drafted in the Top 3 Rounds and has panned out?

That's what I was looking for, sorry must have read past that. Such is the life for a draft forum. Every year when a guy runs slow, or might run slow we hear the Jerry Rice/Anquan Boldin argument.

...and every small spread QB might be the next Drew Brees or Jeff Garcia.

I will be so much happier when we finally kill that off and actually let the magic of that kind of crap happen organically.

Santana Moss sure has panned out well.
4.5 isn't slow geez.

Moss was a high 4.2 low 4.3 guy.

Don't derail this into a 4.5 isn't slow argument. Fact is that small wide receivers like Broyles who don't have that great speed aren't valued that high and rarely go in the early rounds.

Santana Moss ran a 4.31 at the combine btw.

Are there really any burners coming out this year? This appears to be a big year for possession receivers, but damn...where's the 4.3-4.4 guys? The only comparison to Santonio Holmes is size, which is pretty right on. Holmes ran a sub 4.4 at the combine if memory serves...which I don't think Broyles could do on his best day.
