The Detroit Lions selected Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles with the 54th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Fantasy analysis: On the surface, this pick makes little sense for a Detroit team that needs immediate help at defensive end and cornerback. A slot receiver coming off surgery five months ago for a torn anterior cruciate ligament doesn't help them win no. Broyles, 5-foot-10, 192 pounds, will probably move into the slot in 2013, with Titus Young taking over for Nate Burleson, who will make $4.5 million that season.
Broyles has no 2012 fantasy value and is a reach in full-retention keeper formats. Leave him to the waiver wire in all typical leagues.
