04/29/2012 - A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 2/54 - Ryan Broyles, WR, 5-10, 192, Oklahoma...The Lions are convinced his surgically-repaired knee is sound and they were overwhelmed by his production. They see him as a faster version Wes Welker. - The Sports Xchange

04/29/2012 - The Lions see Broyles as a Wes Welker-type possession receiver, only with more speed. Fittingly, Welker was one of the people who helped Broyles stay positive through his ACL rehab. "He reached out to me," Broyles said. "He sent me an email and told me he had been through the same thing. Just buckle down and you will get through it." - The Sports Xchange

04/27/2012 - WR Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma -- Broyles shot back up draft boards after running a 40-yard dash in the mid-4.5-second range just five months removed from ACL surgery. A bit of a gamble, the Lions have a potential steal if Broyles fully recovers his pre-injury speed. He owns the NCAA record with 349 career receptions and is second with 4,586 yards.

04/13/2012 - A mere five months after Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles tore his ACL in the third quarter of the Sooners game against Texas A&M he was back on the field showcasing his skills. Thursday morning Broyles hosted his own Pro Day in Norman and worked out his repaired left knee in front of NFL scouts with hopes of improving his draft stock. "I feel like today I showed up and showed I've been working hard. I have definitely been timing well. The scouts said the same thing," said Broyles. The NCAA career receptions leader performed for 12 NFL scouts in attendance and from the mutterings in the crowd they seemed impressed with his numbers. Broyles weighed in at 188 pounds and worked out for about 35 minutes recording a vertical time of 32.5 inches. He ran the 40-yard dash two times with his best attempt clocked at 4.57 seconds. "They don't expect me to be full speed and I don't expect the same," added Broyles when asked about his 40-yard dash time. "Being competitive, I wish it was in the 4.3 range. That's not the scenario. It just shows that I am working hard. I am getting my lateral movement back as well." After running the dash, Broyles ran routes and caught passes for the NFL scouts. "I wanted to keep going. I have been working for months doing all my routes. So for them to cut it short shows that they have respect for me as a ball catcher. I have been working for it," added Broyles. "I have been working hard these past few months just to show that I am a competitor. I am going to compete. I am going to be ready for camp. I am on my way." Broyles completed his senior season for the Sooners with 83 catches, 1,157 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. - News on 6, TV, Oklahoma

04/12/2012 - Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles shouldn't be surprised if he's celebrating April 27 after turning in an effort he's very happy with on Thursday. Not a first-round prospect because of his size and average speed, Broyles is admittedly quicker than he is fast, a precise route-runner whose quickness in short areas helps him elude tacklers after separating from coverage. He showed more than adequate speed Thursday at his delayed pro day, clocking at 4.57 seconds in the 40 and a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump at 5-10, 191 pounds. The all-time leading receiver in NCAA history suffered a devastating knee injury (torn left ACL) in November, ending hsi 2011 season, and was an observer at the Combine and OU's initial pro day. Broyles lacks the bulk and speed to be drafted early, but teams looking for a slot receiver who could also help in the return game should consider him beginning in the third round. Before his workout, Broyles was in the 3-4 round range and 14th overall among wide receivers in the NFLDraftScout.com rankings. A few teams to watch in round three: Pittsburgh at No. 86, two spots ahead of where Mike Wallace (86th, 2009) was drafted and Denver at No. 87 would love to add an advanced route-runner and slot receiving option at this stage of the draft only after filling greater needs up top. But clubs well ahead of them -- Buffalo (71), Miami (72, 73), Houston (76) and Chicago (79) have more immediate receiver concerns and could be shopping the middle rounds if they miss out on top-ranked receivers in the first round. - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange

04/12/2012 - Running without a noticeable limp, former Oklahoma receiver Ryan Broyles looked fluid and well on the road to a full recovery from a torn ACL during his pro day Thursday. Broyles suffered his injury last November which kept him from fully participating in the NFL draft process as he recovers from the injury. "It's an emotional time for me," Broyles said. "I'm glad I could come out here and show a little bit, showing teams I'll be ready for camp when the time comes. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I'm working for." Broyles recorded a 32.5 inch vertical jump and 4.57 time in the 40-yard dash during the short session inside the Sooners' Everest Indoor Center. He also ran routes for the NFL scouts in attendance. Representatives from the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants, New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans were on hand. "I'm not where I want to be but that's to be expected right now," Broyles said. "The scouts said they don't expect me to be full speed and I don't expect the same." - Brandon Chatmon, SoonerNation

04/12/2012 - Less than five months after having surgery on a torn knee ligament, All-American receiver Ryan Broyles made his case for the NFL draft Thursday by running the 40-yard dash and a handful of routes for pro scouts. Broyles was clocked in 4.57 seconds and 4.59 seconds on a pair of 40-yard runs and caught six passes from former Oklahoma quarterback Joey Halzle. Broyles has caught the most passes in NCAA history. He says he hopes he showed the scouts that he has been working hard and that he's healthy enough to be ready for minicamp for whatever team may draft him in two weeks. Broyles tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in November, shortly after breaking the NCAA record for career receptions. - AP Sports

04/09/2012 - 2012 NFL COMBINE MEDICAL RECHECK: WR Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma (5-10, 192): The NCAA's all-time leading receiver suffered a devastating knee injury late in the 2011 season, which has kept him sidelined during the pre-draft process. Broyles couldn't participate at the combine or Oklahoma's on-campus pro day and has yet to set a date as to when he'll be able to run for NFL teams before draft weekend. He feels confident he will be able to show "something" before the draft but the injury will make it tough for a team to invest an early round draft pick in him. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com

04/04/2012 - There is recent precedent for outstanding players in a so-called skilled position to move into the NFL the next year and have a good career. In 2003, University of Miami's extraordinary running back Willis McGahee was drafted No. 23 overall by the Buffalo Bills after a devastating late-season injury. In 2007, Louisville running back Michael Bush was selected in the fourth round, No. 100 overall, by the Oakland Raiders, despite suffering a season-ending broken right tibia in Louisville's opener the previous season. McGahee sat out his first pro year, but in the last eight years with three teams he has had four seasons rushing for more than 1,000 yards, including 1,199 yards in 2011 as the other option in Tim Tebow's run option offense at Denver. Bush also sat out his first pro season. Then, after serving as a sometimes starter behind oft-injured Darren McFadden, he made enough of an impression to get a four-year, $14 million contract last month with the Chicago Bears. McGahee had a severe knee injury that required an extensive surgery known as a triad, involving repair to a torn ACL, meniscus and MCL. Broyles' injury involved only the ACL and the surgery was done in Pensacola, Fla. by Dr. James Andrews, considered one of the best in the business. "I really expect to be as good as ever at some point," Broyles said. "Everything has gone well. I have worked hard and in some ways I am in the best shape of my life. I'll keep doing my best and the rest will take care of itself." - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

04/04/2012 - Broyles was an entertaining, elusive wide receiver and returner before his injury. He did not appear to have elite speed, but was very quick and used a dazzling array of lateral moves to elude tacklers. It is exactly that type of move that puts stress on an ACL. That is why the usual physical recovery time for such an injury is believed to be a minimum of eight months. Often, the mental or emotional recovery, and the confidence that goes with it, takes more than a year. But Broyles began showing confidence when he began pushing his rehab only two weeks after the surgery. "My dream has always been to play in the NFL, not be a first-round draft pick, just to be a pick," he said. "It's not about where you get picked. It's not about how much money you make. It's about how much you save. I've heard that a lot. I'm on my saving kick already." - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

04/04/2012 - Oklahoma's NCAA record-holding wide receiver Ryan Broyles confirmed to NFLDraftScout.com that he feels "great" and will hold a personal pro day for NFL scouts on April 12, five months after a torn left ACL prematurely ended his remarkable college career. "I'm feeling confident and I feel great," said Broyles when asked how his leg was coming along. "I can't give you a percentage, it's not 100 percent but the left leg is getting closer to being as strong as the right leg." In a game against Texas A&M on Nov. 5, Broyles hurt the knee while making a cut after his second catch of the game, a 30-yarder that set up one of four third-quarter touchdowns in the Sooners' 41-25 victory. It was his final college catch, pushing his NCAA record to 349. His 4,586 yards receiving are second in NCAA history. Last year when Broyles asked the NFL to evaluate his draft potential, he was told he projected as a probable late second-round pick. After conferring with Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, Broyles opted to return for another college season. NFLDraftScout.com had Broyles rated as high as an early second-round pick before his injury. He is currently the No. 26-ranked wide receiver and projected as a sixth-round prospect. However, if he is able to show significant progress, he is expected to move up everybody's draft board, possibly close to that late second-round spot again. In addition to his own workout on April 12, the next day he is among those players due to return to Indianapolis for a post-Combine re-check. He did attend the February combine. He measured 5-10, 192 pounds and he actually took part in the bench press, pushing up 225 pounds 21 times. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

03/15/2012 - Ryan Broyles stood on the Everest Indoor Facility turf watching Oklahoma's pro day with envy in his eyes on Wednesday. The former Sooners receiver couldn't participate as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL suffered against Texas A&M on Nov. 5, but Broyles' day could be coming soon. He expects to hold a private workout day of his own in April, before the NFL draft is held from April 26-28. "In the back of my head I know I'm going to be able to show something before the draft," Broyles said. "So that gives me strength, I know I'll have time to get healthier and catch better." Broyles began running about a month and a half ago and has progressed into more football-related workouts recently as he continues to recover. Full recovery from an ACL injury can take 6 to 8 months but Broyles is ahead of schedule. "I'm feeling healthy right now; another month goes by [and] I'll be feeling really good," Broyles said. "I feel confident, I've been doing light routes, light cutting. I'm not where I want to be, but I feel strong and my left leg is catching up to my right." - Brandon Chatmon, ESPN

02/24/2012 - Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles characterized his recovery from surgery to repair a torn ACL and and slight meniscus tear as "going well" and said that he hopes to have a Pro Day in early April to prove as much to NFL teams. His Sooner teammates may be available to work out as his Pro Day as well, though the school already has one Pro Day scheduled for March 14. Broyles injured his left knee playing against Texas A&M November 5. He was operated on by noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Florida and has already been running. The 5-10, 188 pound Broyles left Oklahoma the NCAA's career leading receiver with 347 grabs for 4,586 yards and 45 touchdowns. A Biletnikof finalist last season, he turned down a chance to be a potentially high pick in last April's draft to help Oklahoma win a BCS Championship. He entered the year considered a possible top 50 selection by NFLDraftScout.com but due to concerns about his health is currently viewed as a 5th round prospect and the No. 23 rated receiver in the 2012 draft. When healthy, Broyles has shown very good quickness out of his breaks and a keen understanding of where holes are in the defense. Considering his toughness and soft hands, he's viewed as one of this year's better slot receiver prospects. - NFLDraftScout.com

12/10/2011 - 2011 ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): WR Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma, Sr., has been selected All-Big 12 Conference First Team for the 2011 college football season as voted on by the league's 10 head coaches, who are not permitted to vote for their own players. - Oklahoma football

12/08/2011 - 2011 FRED BILETNIKOFF AWARD FINALIST (BEST WIDE RECEIVER): Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma, Sr...Broyles, whose season ended with a knee injury against Texas A&M on Nov. 5, finished his collegiate career as the NCAA career receptions leader with 349 catches and No. 2 on the NCAA career receiving yards chart with 4,586 yards. His 45 career receiving touchdowns rank No. 4 in NCAA history. This season the senior from Norman, Okla., ranks No. 2 nationally with 128.6 receiving yards per game, best among all BCS players, and No. 3 nationally with 9.2 receptions per game. For the season, Broyles has 83 receptions for 1,157 yards and 10 touchdowns along with 18 punt returns for 188 yards. The 2011 season marked the third consecutive season with at least 83 catches for Broyles after hauling in 131 in 2010 and 89 in 2009. - Oklahoma football

11/09/2011 - Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops is holding out hope that a season-ending knee injury to All-American receiver Ryan Broyles won't hurt him when it comes to the NFL draft or postseason awards. Broyles, who is the NCAA record-holder with 349 career receptions and he ranks second all-time with 4,586 receiving yards, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Saturday against Texas A&M. "It's very unfortunate and we'll see. I believe he has a huge body of work that's impressive, that I've already heard from one general manager that has said that: `Look, just missing these last games, obviously we know what he's capable of,"' Stoops said Tuesday. "There's a lot of that that'll be positive for him and then how he gets through the surgery and how he reacts probably leading up to the draft, he won't be able to perform but obviously they'll be able to check it out that it's progressing just as it should and hopefully that will still give him a good, strong opportunity." Broyles currently ranks second in the nation with 128.6 receiving yards per game and fourth with 9.2 receptions per game. He was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation's top receiver, last season when he led the nation with 131 catches. "I would think you look at his number of receptions, his yards. He's leading the country right up until this game in yards, so hopefully the All-America teams and the Biletnikoff, I would think sure he'd still be considered," Stoops said. - AP Sports

11/05/2011 - No. 7 Oklahoma lost a lot in a victory over Texas A&M. All-American Ryan Broyles, the NCAA's career leader in receptions, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season. He got hurt while cutting to make his second catch of the game, a 30-yarder that set up one of four third-quarter touchdowns in the Sooners' 41-25 victory Saturday. "It's just a bad deal," quarterback Landry Jones said. "You hate for something like that to happen to such a good guy." Broyles left the field in tears. He entered the game averaging 13.2 yards on 81 catches. His two catches went for 57 and 30 yards. "He's such a special, special player," coach Bob Stoops said. "It's deflating for him and for all of us. ... Your heart drops when you first hear it." The Sooners (8-1, 5-1 Big 12) scored on four straight possessions after leading 13-10 at halftime. Texas A&M (5-4, 3-3) had its second-half troubles continue-the Aggies gave up big second-half leads in its previous three losses. The Aggies, headed for the Southeastern Conference, won't miss coming to Norman. They're now 0-7 on Owen Field during the Bob Stoops era; the previous six losses had come by an average of 41 points. - AP Sports

10/17/2011 - WEEK 7 BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma, WR, Sr, Norman, Okla., had 13 catches for a school-record 217 yards and two touchdowns in No. 1/3 Oklahoma's 47-17 win at Kansas. His scoring plays covered 57 and 43 yards. On the 57-yard touchdown, Broyles set two career records - the NCAA mark for receptions (317), and touchdown receptions by a Big 12 player (43). The senior ended the night with career marks of 326 catches and 44 receiving touchdowns. Broyles also had 84 yards in punt returns for an all-purpose total of 301 yards. His longest punt return went for 33 yards. - Big 12 football

10/16/2011 - Oklahoma All-American Ryan Broyles became the NCAA's career receptions leader on a record-setting Saturday night, Landry Jones threw for 363 yards and three scores and the third-ranked Sooners rolled to a 47-17 victory over Kansas. Broyles finished with 13 catches for a school-record 217 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown grab midway through the second quarter. The catch broke former Purdue standout Taylor Stubblefield's record of 316 receptions-Broyles finished the game with 326 in his career. The senior from Norman, Okla., added another TD catch in the fourth quarter, giving him 44 for his career. He came into the game tied with former Oklahoma State star Rashaun Woods for the Big 12 mark. Dominique Whaley added 165 yards rushing and a touchdown, and Michael Hunnicutt hit all four of his field-goal attempts for the Sooners (6-0, 3-0), who didn't put away the Jayhawks (2-4, 0-3) until Broyles' second touchdown catch with 10:22 remaining in the fourth quarter. James Sims and Darrian Miller combined to rush for 141 yards and two touchdowns for Kansas, but Jordan Webb endured constant pressure and finished 13 of 25 for 108 yards. He was sacked five times and KU didn't score after halftime. Oklahoma, coming off a 55-17 Red River rout of Texas, may have been looking for some style points against the nation's worst defense with the initial BCS standings due out Sunday. - AP Sports

10/15/2011 - Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles has become the NCAA's career leader with his 317th catch during the first half of Saturday night's game against Kansas. Broyles broke the receptions record set by Purdue's Taylor Stubblefield in 2004. The senior from Norman, Okla., set the record with a 57-yard touchdown catch from Landry Jones with 7:50 remaining in the first half. Broyles caught the pass in stride on a post route and ran untouched into the end zone. It was his fourth catch of the night. Broyles, who's averaged more than seven catches per game in his career, also moved into first place on the Big 12's career TD reception list with 43. He had been tied with former Oklahoma State wide receiver Rashaun Woods. - AP Sports

10/06/2011 - Even after an All-America season, Ryan Broyles knew he could do more. It didn't have anything to do with catching more passes or improving the statistics he put up while breaking every significant receiving record at Oklahoma. It was a realization that he wasn't being the right kind of role model for the No. 3 Sooners (4-0, 1-0 Big 12). "I know years in the past I didn't want to be a leader because I knew I'd have to go hard and play and really hone in every opportunity that I have," Broyles said. "But now, I think it just makes me a complete player, knowing that guys are looking up to me and I have to - and I want to - set a good example for them." Broyles has been taking steps in that direction since a rocky start in Norman. He was arrested for stealing gas the day before Oklahoma's 2007 season opener - he'd later plead no contest to the crime - and he redshirted behind a talented group of receivers. He also had to sit out the first game of the 2008 season and then went out and set the school's freshman record for receiving yards in his debut. Since then, has kept maturing both as a person and a player, and the big numbers have continued to add up. When he takes the field Saturday against No. 11 Texas (4-0, 1-0), Broyles will be 13 catches shy of breaking the NCAA career record for receptions. Taylor Stubblefield, who played for Purdue from 2001-04, currently holds it with 316 receptions. He also set a goal not to drop any passes this season, although he could count on one hand how many he had last season. - AP Sports

09/25/2011 - Landry Jones threw for 448 yards and three touchdowns to Ryan Broyles, leading top-ranked Oklahoma back from a rare home deficit to beat Missouri 38-28 on Saturday night. With two starting receivers out of the lineup, Broyles had to play up to his usual All-American standard without proven sidekicks. Kenny Stills, who caught the go-ahead touchdown in a win at then-No. 5 Florida State last week, was out with a head injury and Trey Franks is suspended indefinitely. The Tigers (2-2, 0-1 Big 12) pounced early to take a 14-3 first-quarter lead, breaking a streak of 20 straight home games in which Oklahoma (3-0, 1-0) never trailed. It didn't last long, though. The Sooners roared back with 28 straight points to avenge a loss in Columbia last year when they were first in the BCS standings and move their home winning streak to 38 straight games. - AP Sports

09/11/2011 - For the 100th time, Oklahoma is No. 1. The Sooners reached a milestone in the history of The Associated Press college football poll without even playing. Oklahoma became the first team to hold the top ranking 100 times since the poll began 1936. The Sooners will bring that No. 1 ranking into one of the biggest nonconference games of the season when they face No. 5 Florida State in Tallahassee on Saturday. Alabama reclaimed the No. 2 spot after a 27-11 victory at Penn State, flip-flopping with No. 3 LSU. Last week, the Tigers jumped the Tide. Boise State is No. 4. Defending national champion Auburn moved back into the rankings at No. 21 after one of the wildest wins from one of the wildest days in college football in recent memory. - AP Sports

09/03/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Ryan Broyles - There are no concerns for Broyles, who has been a standout ever since taking the field. But his assault on the NCAA record book will be a season-long subplot provided he doesn't get hurt. - The Sports Xchange

09/01/2011 - A BCS berth is the bare minimum for what is acceptable at Oklahoma. This year, however, a spot in the national title game is a legitimate goal for the top-ranked Sooners as their season begins Saturday night against Tulsa. Coach Bob Stoops has guided Oklahoma to eight BCS bowl appearances since arriving in Norman in 1999, winning the title in 2001 and losing in the championship game on three occasions. Once more, expectations are high after Oklahoma went 12-2 last season and rolled past Connecticut in the Fiesta Bowl to end a five-game losing streak in BCS contests. The players have no problem embracing the lofty goals. "Who doesn't want to be No. 1? Who doesn't want to be in first?" cornerback Jamell Fleming said. "There is a little nerve-wracking thing about it but we just try not to think about that. "We're always expected to be high regardless. Year after year, that's how it is. We're not nervous. We're just embracing it and going out there to play." Oklahoma's offense is led by the potent tandem of Heisman Trophy candidates Landry Jones at quarterback and Frank Broyles at wide receiver. Jones threw for 4,718 yards and 38 touchdowns last season to lead a passing attack that ranked third in the FBS. He is seven passing yards shy of overtaking Jason White (7,922) for second all-time at Oklahoma Broyles is the NCAA leader among active players with 266 receptions, 35 touchdown catches and 3,429 receiving yards after a standout 2010 season. He set single-season school records with 131 catches for 1,622 yards while matching the mark for TD receptions with 14. - AP Sports

08/25/2011 - The Sooners enter the season No. 1 in several preseason polls, including ESPN, Fox Sports Net, Blue Ribbon and Lindy's. They will also enter the season with several preseason All-Big 12 honors: WR Ryan Broyles, QB Landry Jones, C Ben Habern, RB Roy Finch, DL Ronnell Lewis, DL Frank Alexander, LB Travis Lewis, DB Demontre Hurts and, again, Broyles, as a punt returner.
