I posted about him about a week ago,
Broughton heads into his junior season at 6-6 and 272 pounds, about 60 more than when he arrived on campus, and considers this a critical juncture in his football career.
"Even though I have two years, I feel like I have to make my mark now," Broughton said. "I want to be a starter. This summer, I'm going to dedicate all my time to football."
Broughton opened spring drills No. 1 at left defensive end, previously Hughes' position. Before practices were done, three other players earned consideration to become the new starter, and a dinged-up Broughton finished No. 3.
40 Time: 4.66
Conference: Big 12
Biography: Started five games as a senior, posting 25 tackles/6 tackles for loss/2 sacks. Junior totals included 11/2/1.
Positives: Athletic yet undeveloped defensive prospect with a high upside. Plays with good quickness, is fluid changing direction and stays on his feet. Easily makes plays in every direction of the field, works his hands to protect himself and plays with good lean. Effective out of a three-point stance or standing up over tackle.
Negatives: Does not play to his 40 time. Lacks balance, on the ground too much and easily blocked from the action. Minimally explosive.
