OKLAHOMA CITY - For the first time since he started playing football, Ryan Broyles had to wait his turn.
After being an All-Stater at Norman High School, a four-year starter at Oklahoma where he became the NCAA's all-time receptions leader, Broyles was drafted in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions.
Broyles, who suffered a torn ACL during his senior season at OU, was buried on the depth chart until a broken leg ended 31-year-old veteran Nate Burleson's season. Broyles was inserted in the starting lineup as the slot receiver.
Given an opportunity, Broyles has produced, hauling in 13 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' past four games.
