The Detroit Lions already had a potent passing attack, led by Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson, but they've added another piece to their offense. They took Oklahoma Sooners receiver Ryan Broyles in the NFL Draft, and he talked to Dan Rubenstein at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere about making it to the NFL.
"I was excited," said Broyles. "Making it to the NFL, there's nothing better than that. I've been working all my life just to be an athlete."
When asked what he knew about Detroit, Broyles said, "I know Barry Sanders. Growing up, Barry Sanders was the man."
Broyles also talked about what it's going to be like to play as a wide receiver for the Lions.
"They came off a great season last year, [they're] putting the pieces together," said Broyles. "I feel like being a wide receiver there, there's no better time. They throw the ball around a lot, so I'm blessed to be a wide receiver at this point."
