Ranking the Top 25 Big 12 players: No. 2
By David Ubben
The official list of the Big 12's top 25 players is locked away in a vault in an undisclosed location, but we're revealing the list day by day here on the blog. Here's a refresher on my exact criteria.
We're in the top 10 now, so it might get a bit heated.
Broyles is nearly impossible to cover one-on-one and has a knack for finding a hole in even the best zones. That said, he's no Wes Welker. He's got the straight-line speed to beat defenders, and often does. He's only 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, but he can go up and get jump balls, too.
He's the league's best punt returner, and that's thanks to his shiftiness and ability to move in space with or without the ball. No other player in the league has that type of skill, and Broyles lands at No. 2 on our list because he does.
