Oklahoma WR Broyles hopes for early April Pro Day

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.

I'm sorry ACL injuries do not drop a guy from top 50 to the 5th round

Irony = expounding on his "toughness" in an article detailing how he's recovering from a major injury.
