Lions Snag Oklahoma Receiver Ryan Broyles

Oklahoma standout receiver Ryan Broyles, who wrecked his left knee in November after setting some NCAA career records, was drafted Friday night by the Lions.

“We have the luxury of being able to rehab this guy very carefully and let him get healthy,” Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said. “If the guy was healthy now, he would’ve been gone.”

Coach Jim Schwartz said Broyles wouldn’t have to “redshirt” this season.

“I’m glad the Detroit Lions felt I was a guy that was capable of coming back from an injury,” Broyles said.
