Pos: 
Explosive, athletic interior defensive line prospect with potential as a three-technique tackle. Plays with proper pad level, gets leverage on opponents and fires through open gaps to penetrate the line of scrimmage. Easily changes direction and displays good lateral movement skills in pursuit. Fires off the snap with a terrific first step and works his hands throughout the action.
Neg: 
Possesses average strength at the point and gets controlled by opponents. May not have much growth potential.
Analysis: 
Broughton is an athletic prospect who displayed consistent progress on the field and had sneaky production. He lacks great upside but could back up in a four-man line.
