2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Michael Floyd could have entered the 2011 NFL Draft, but decided to return to the Fighting Irish. With great height, hands, and size, he has the potential to be a very good possession receiver in the NFL.

A very reliable receiver who can work defenses anywhere on the field. He is very good at the point of attack and displays a great knack at beating press coverage. Whether it is using his hands to disengage or simply shielding defenders away from the ball, Floyd can separate from his man in short spaces. Gifted with long arms and the ability to climb the ladder, he can make plays on deep balls. He is not blessed with elite speed, but can adequately challenge corners down the field.

Durability and character concerns may end up hurting his draft stock. He was arrested for a DUI in 2010 and was charged with underage drinking the year before. Notre Dame opted to suspend him during their summer practices.

At the next level, he projects as an very good No. 2 receiver. He lacks the necessary explosion off the line and suddenness in his route running to be a true top-flight No. 1 receiver. He will need to get stronger in his lower body since he is an average blocker. Given his size and frame, the potential is there for Floyd to have a very good NFL career.

Prediction: 3rd Round

If he's drafted higher than the third round, the team picking him will be making a big mistake. He's an overhyped ND "star." A smarter pick, a much better talent, is Cal's Marvin Jones. I hope the Bears manage to snare him.

Prediction: 1st Round

He is the FIFTH best WR in this draft behind Blackmon, Wright, Cridon and Sanu. Should go mid-2nd round unless you worship all things ND.

Check back in three years and he'll be the best receiver in this draft!
