It would not be outlandish to consider Michael Floyd is the top receiver of his class,. His stats are gaudy, his hands like glue. There exists no shortage of leaping grab pics for the Minnesota native. An All-American and two time Player of the Year at the high school level, a main stage record setting college career.All these reasons and more prompted the Arizona Cardinals to swipe the Notre Dame receiver with the 13th overall pick.
At 6'3" 220 lbs. the 22 year old grew up a lot his senior year. After a turmoiled off season he was placed on suspension. Once reinstated, he set a school record for catches with 100. He finished his collegiate career a men among boys compiling 3686 yards and 37 touchdowns, The Cardinals are hoping these numbers translate over at the games highest level.
Floyd's uncanny ability to catch almost anything combined with his versatility both on the sideline or over the middle may be a reckoning force for defenses. Opposite center to Floyd will be All Pro Larry Fitzgerald. Certainly Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt has to be taking into consideration of the possibilities and potential of this tandem. After all Fitzgerald's best seasons came when a man named Boldin was his partner in crime.
Get a pen and pad... strike that get something more permanent like a marker write this down. Michael Floyd is a solid pick at 13 an almost sure thing in a league full of parody. Watch out for the Cardinal double threat coming this fall.
