his first-step burst and acceleration get him into the backfield quickly off the edge or knifing inside. excellent movement skills for his tall, lengthy frame. relentless nature and speed to collapse the pocket or chase down plays from behind. because of his agility and closing speed, could move to a more traditional linebacker.
Played through a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery.
in our view
A highly intriguing size-length-athleticism prospect, Floyd can stab, dip and flatten around the edge, maintaining his balance without losing speed to the pocket. He is deadly in space, but Floyd's lack of functional strength and growth potential are glaring concerns. One of the best athletes in this draft class, his is not one of the best football players and would need to land in a scheme that protects him in a niche role.
Has the requisite burst to surge past tackles as a speed rusher with underrated strength. He is surprisingly powerful at the point of attack, flashing dynamite in his hands with an effective hand slap to knock away blockers attempting to gain control.
Barkevious Mingo, Cleveland Browns - Neither players is known for ideal power features. Floyd and Mingo have lean athleticism and get-off quickness to threaten the edge and keep blockers guessing.
the two major knocks on floyd are weight and durability. has lean bone structure with twig limbs, thin torso and scouts have concerns about how much weight he can add - looks like a.j. green in his georgia uniform, which isn't a positive comparison for a pass rusher. below-average functional strength.
Struggles to generate movement at the point of attack or convert speed to power. Too easily controlled on the edges. Can be eliminated by blockers when he doesn't effectively use his length.
