Overnight wait pays off for Stanford TE Fleener
Two All-Americans defensive linemen were chosen in the second round: Devon Still of Penn State by Cincinnati and Jerel Worthy of Michigan State by Green Bay. Also chosen, by Detroit, was Oklahoma standout receiver Ryan Broyles, who wrecked his left knee in November after setting some NCAA career records.
“We have the luxury of being able to rehab this guy very carefully and let him get healthy,” Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said. “If the guy was healthy now, he would’ve been gone.”
Coach Jim Schwartz said Broyles wouldn’t have to “redshirt” this season.
“I’m glad the Detroit Lions felt I was a guy that was capable of coming back from an injury,” Broyles said.
Oregon star running back LaMichael James, the nation’s leading rusher in 2010, went to San Francisco 61st overall. He joins a crowded backfield.
The Giants finished the second round by selecting LSU receiver Rueben Randle, the last of 26 players invited to the draft to be chosen.
