Michael Floyd, Notre Dame’s great wide receiver, is one of my favorite players in this 2012 NFL Draft (Zennie62.com coverage by Tout.com), and some say the second-best wide receiver behind Oklahoma St’s Justin Blackmon. He’s so good, the Philadelphia Eagles gave him a private workout on Tuesday.
But for me he’s a very, very close second to Justin Blackmon and because I watched Floyd grow into the Fighting Irish’ go-to-guy. Michael excells at catching a pass in the middle and gaining yards after it.
Michael’s totally un-afraid of contact, and seems to have a feel for avoiding the big hit after he gets the ball. This video demonstrates what I mean:
In addition to his pass-catching talent, Floyd has ran a variety of route, and played against some of the NCAA’s best defenses and defenders. The question is, will Floyd last by the 15th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft?
