Broyles is an interesting player. He was probably a solid second rounder until the ACL injury ended his season in November. As is, he probably will not be able to run at his proday and may even be hampered with the injury through camp.
To me, he projects as a really good slot receiver, a #3 rather than a #2 like Hilton. One thing that hurts Broyles is he played in the Big XII, league that is not known for good defense. In contrast, Maize played very well in the SEC where teams pride themselves on Defense.
I would put Broyles as a mid 3rd/4th rounder, but wouldn't be surprised if someone took him late 2nd.
