Combine's most intriguing players
Remember Ryan Broyles? The NFL combine is a good place to get reacquainted
Earlier this season, I had Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles on my Big Board. An excellent route-runner with good quickness, if not great speed and steady hands, he was a potential first-round pick. Good NFL scouts have long memories, and plenty of tape, which means good things for Broyles -- who tore his ACL in a game early in November -- but doesn't totally diminish the importance of this week.
Broyles is one of a few guys who will be able to give clear status updates on injuries during this week's NFL combine in Indianapolis. But to go beyond the guys coming in with injury questions, here's a list of players who fit a few categories when it comes to intrigue and where I see them right now.
