Scouting Report
Floyd is a dynamic wide receiver and is considered by many to be a first-round draft pick, though he'll have to prove to the team that selects him that his off-the-field issues are behind him. After a breakout junior season, Floyd caught 100 passes for 1,147 yards and nine touchdowns in 2011 and established himself as one of the top wideouts heading into the draft. There's little questioning of his talent, but whether or not he can stay out of trouble remains to be seen. Floyd was arrested three times while at Notre Dame, all alcohol-related incidents. He was charged with driving under the influence in March 2011, leading to an indefinite suspension from the team and putting his senior season in jeopardy. After completing rehabilitation classes, he was reinstated and had another great season. Given commissioner Roger Goodell's crackdown on off-the-field behavior in recent years, NFL teams surely will question Floyd regarding these incidents to make sure they do not resurface. If he's able to put his mistakes behind him, his size and athleticism will make him an asset in any team's passing game. Aside from his ability to elude defenders and find open spots on the field, Floyd is a more-than-capable blocker in the running game. He doesn't have the breakaway speed some teams look for, but he still posted a solid 40-yard dash of 4.47 seconds at the NFL combine, and he'll likely be selected in the middle of the first round.
