2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Sharrif Floyd
The 2013 NFL Draft is filled with plenty of talented defensive tackles, but the argument can be made that no player is better at the position than Sharrif Floyd after the steller career he had at Florida.
There was a reason why the Gators had one of the most dangerous defenses in 2012 as Floyd seems like the type of defender who will not only have an immediate impact as a rookie, but could earn himself a starting spot in Week 1. Floyd has been heavily praised for the way he uses his hands as a defender and is capable of playing in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme on defense–which gives him an advantage over most other rookies.
Even if the regular season is still months away, it’s difficult not to start hyping up the potential with Floyd as he should find himself into consideration for Defensive Rookie of the Year if everything goes according to plan. Floyd showed plenty of NFL potential as a member of the Gators last year and now that he’s in the big leagues–it will be fun to see what type of player he develops into over the next couple of seasons as he could easily emerge into one of the league’s top contenders.
Now that he’s in the NFL, it’s time for Floyd to show the world what he’s capable of and that he deserves to be playing with the best after everything he accomplished throughout his career at Florida.
