Tale of the Tape: Ryan Broyles vs Colorado

Written by Aaron Aloysius on December 27, 2010

Oklahoma wideout Ryan Broyles posted incredible numbers this fall, hauling in 118 passes for 1,452 yards and 13 touchdowns. And Broyles made amassing those numbers look easy, effortlessly hauling in over the shoulder grabs and gliding past defensive backs.


Broyles’ impressive skills were on full display in the Colorado game, in which the Sooner lit up the scoreboard with three touchdown catches.




Broyles lacks great size and won’t blaze the turf in Indy, but his quickness, awareness, and strong hands should earn the underclassman a spot in the 2nd round. With a better than expected 40 time, Broyles very well could make his way into the first frame.

Aaron began closely following the draft in 2005. Since then, he’s overcome an Al Davis-like obsession with workout numbers, instead focusing more (but not exclusively) on the traits visible on prospects’ tape.
