2012 NFL Draft: Chiefs Attend Ryan Broyles' Workout

The Kansas City Chiefs were among a number of teams on hand to watch 2012 NFL draft prospect Ryan Broyles workout at his very own Oklahoma pro day. Broyles tore his ACL last November so he has been unable to show NFL scouts what he's been able to do.

Broyles was incredibly productive at Oklahoma surpassing the 1,000 yards receiving yards mark in his last three seasons. He topped out at 131 receptions for 1,622 yards in his junior season.

At 5'10" and 188 pounds, he probably fits in as a slot receiver in the NFL.

The big question is obviously his health. Can he play? He tore the ACL in November and had surgery shortly thereafter. It's usually an eight to nine month recovery process so he could be ready for training camps in August.

By that time, the Chiefs medical staff should pretty much be experts on players recovering from ACL tears.

With his injury, he's projected to be a mid round pick -- the third or fourth round. I think his talent level is probably a little higher than that, though. The injury came at a bad time.

Interesting prospect considering all the production he has.

The other teams in attendance, according to ESPN: Atlanta Falcons,Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos,Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants, New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans.
