Lions Training Camp: Ryan Broyles Is Back On The Field, Says He's Feeling Good

No one was happier than wide receiver Ryan Broyles at Detroit Lions training camp on Monday. After tearing a ligament in his left knee in his senior season, he had to sit out nine months and saw his stock plummet in the draft.

The No. 54 overall pick was just thankful to get out there after all of this time off, via Larry Lage of the Associated Press.

"Since I started playing football in the eighth grade, I've dreamed of being in the NFL," he said. "I didn't dream about being a first-round pick. It's not where you start, it's where you finish."

"Coach (Schwartz) said, 'Once you get in, we're not taking you out,'" Broyles recalled. "Other than feeling a little fatigued after my second practice in two days after doing a lot of watching, I feel really good."

Quarterback Matthew Stafford doesn't buy that Broyles is completely healthy at this point, but is pleased with the rookie's work ethic.
