Michael Floyd Scouting Report
Michael Floyd
Michael Floyd - Notre Dame (HT: 6-3 - WT: 227)
Combine 40: N/A - Position Rank: 3 of 10


Positives: Graduated from famed Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul, Minnesota which has put out multiple sports stars (Joe Mauer, Paul Moliter, Matt Birk, Chris Weinke)... Has good speed, plays faster than his timed speed... Good initial burst off the line of scrimmage... Gets into his routes quickly... Solid runner in the open field, strong and can shed tacklers and also has some wiggle to him... Willing to make catches in the middle of the field... Catches the ball at its highest point... Regarded higher than former teammate Golden Tate who was a second round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft... Good red zone target, big frame and can out jump smaller defenders in the end zone... Has knowledge of how pro-style offenses work after playing for Charlie Weis his first two seasons.

Negatives: Had some leg issues during his freshman season... Missed time in 2009 due to a broken collarbone... Has had some fumbling issues in the past, carries the ball too far away from his body after he catches it... Not very explosive, is more of a slow-twitch athlete... May carry too much weight for his frame, lacks some flexibility and big play ability... Will be more of a possession receiver at the next level, had only two receptions in 2010 that went for over 35 yards... In March, 2011, was charged with drunken driving after failing three field sobriety tests and a breathalyzer test indicated he had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal driving limit... It was his third alcohol related offense since 2009 and second in 14 months, suspended indefinitely from football team-related activities.
