Draft Analysis:

Mayock's take: "I love this marriage. I'll tell you something right now, there is not a better role model for him in the NFL at the wide receiver position than Larry Fitzgerald. He will mentor this kid and get the most out of him."

Overview

Floyd has been a game changer at the collegiate level and possesses the size, aggressiveness and game experience to make a difference early in his transition to the NFL. Floyd has been an extremely productive deep threat, as well as a physical blocker and a reliable third-down playmaker, for the Fighting Irish throughout his career. His on-field maturity, physical nature and ability to make the big catch will outweigh some off-field mishaps, as Floyd projects to be one of the first receives taken in the draft.

Analysis

Strengths

Floyd is a polished receiver who shows a burst off the line of scrimmage, despite his frame. He is a solid route runner who will consistently make the big catch. He is an excellent athlete who is strong and contributes in the run game with his physicality on the edge. A receiver who is tough across the middle, Floyd will make the difficult catch and get upfield. Floyd brings that No. 1 receiver presence to the next level and projects to produce to that standard. Floyd's frame and explosiveness off the line make him a presence that is felt by opposing defenses. As a blocker, Floyd will do more than just mirror defenders, as he will come down the line of scrimmage and crack linebackers. He is a red-zone threat at any level.

Weaknesses

Floyd does not have game-breaking speed as a deep threat, and he hasn't always been consistent. Prior injuries could raise a red flag, along with various off-field issues.
