WR Broyles hopes for May return

Oklahoma WR Ryan Broyles was one of the most prolific receivers in Big 12 Conference history, but an ACL injury this past November put him behind in this pre-draft process.

“Surgery went well. Rehab is going well,” said Broyles Friday in Indianapolis. “I’m running a little bit and moving around. I’m on pace to be cleared in May. I’m hoping to have a pro day in early April to show I’m moving around and on pace to be cleared for a May minicamp.”

Broyles, who set an NCAA record for receptions in a college career with 349 and is second in NCAA annals with 4,586 yards, suffered an ACL tear and slight meniscus tear. He had famed orthopedist Dr. James Andrews do his surgery. Though he can’t perform in drills at the combine he’s eager to get back to football. 

“I’m ready for what comes next,” he said. “Coming back for my senior year you never want it to end that way missing the last three games. I feel blessed to have played at Oklahoma, so it really hurt. But surgery went well. I have high hopes and am ready to take the next step.”

Broyles (5’10” 187) is seen as a mid-round draft pick.
