Earlier this week the Cardinals' star wideout told Sports Illustrated's Peter King that he wanted his team to draft Notre Dame's Michael Floydwith the No. 13-overall pick in Thursday's NFL draft. That's exactly what the Cardinals did, and Fitzgerald didn't hesitate to express his views on Floyd's selection to The Arizona Republic.
"In this league you have to be able to beat press man coverage on third down," Fitzgerald wrote via text message. "He is a big guy who has suddenness and can win on third down and make plays in the red zone."
The fact that Floyd and Fitzgerald reside from the same state made the pick all the sweeter.
"And he's from Minnesota," Fitzgerald wrote. "Enough said. LOL."
