NFL Draft Videostat Profile: WR Michael Floyd

Our signature 60 Max Power O Videostat Profile segment covers select players from around the country for the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft starting on April 26th. We aim to cram as much as these in before the picks start rolling in. Next in line is Notre Dame's Michael Floyd:

Positives:
Floyd can work defenses anywhere on the field, either from outside the hash marks or the slot.  Good at the point of attack and shows a great knack at defeating press coverages. Very adept at using his hands to disengage a defender or muscling defenders away from the ball, Floyd can separate from his man in short spaces and go to the highest point to pluck the ball out of the air. Floyd has long arms and the ability to close a cushion quick and get on top of a defender. He can make plays on deep balls. He doesn’t have top end speed, but can challenge corners down the field and force defenders to turn on the top of a stem.

Negatives:
Toughness and character concerns may end up hurting his draft slot. He was arrested for a DUI in 2010 and was charged with underage drinking the year before. Notre Dame suspended him during their summer practices, but let him play once the regular season started. Hardly a lesson taught, Floyd will have to show he’s ready to handle the pressure of NFL life has to offer.
