Michael Floyd handles questions about “immaturity”

Eric Graham, Michael Floyd AP

Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd has a chance to be the No. 2 wideout taken in April. First, he says he has to prove to teams he can run and that he’s put his off-field problems behind him.

Speaking at the Combine Friday, Floyd chalked up his multiple issues in college to immaturity.

“All I can do is be honest, tell teams what happened, and go from there,” Floyd said. “It’s about making sure you don’t make the same mistake again.

Floyd, who checked in at 6’2, 220 pounds, handled the barrage of questions on the topic well.  He believes he’s an “all around” receiver and tries to pattern his game after Larry Fitzgerald. (Floyd’s best ability — to grab the ball at its highest point — is reminiscent of Fitz.)

    Floyd will be next in a long line of Chicago Bear WR busts.

    Why isn’t anyone writing about Alshon weighing in at 214 lbs at 6’3″? Since writers on here helped smear his image by claiming he was 240 lbs+ it seems it would be appropriate, no?

    The 2nd wide receiver taken, that’s thinking highly about yourself. Maybe 4th or 5th.

    So Floyd had a lot of fun in college that got him into a few off-field incidents. I am shocked! Obviously he is “ruined” as far as being an great NFL wide receiver as a result.

    I never understood “catching the ball at its highest point”. Wouldn’t that be about 20 feet or higher depending on the arch of the pass ??

    He reminds me of Braylon Edwards, makes some great catches, but drops way too many easy ones.

    agreed. wouldn’t it also only be possible that the highest point you can catch a ball is at the highest point of your jump….?

    and with the 27th pick the new england patriots select out of notre dame …..

    Floyd’s official height at the combine looks like 6’3 not 6’2

    The reason no one is talking about Jeffery being lighter is because is is on a fat stripping program and is rumored to have dropped over 35 pounds since the bowl season.

    That would mean he was still overweight when he played and most of the questions about him are still valid.

    This guy is a beast, he might be the second or third receiver taken in the draft, but he is the best of the bunch

    Written like (by Gregg Rosenthal) someone who has never been on the gridiron. The saying is actually “catching the ball at the height of YOUR jump”

    Michael Floyd his a very high character guy, he liked to booze in college, if any of you didn’t then you prob collect comics and still live at home.

    He stayed his senior year to forfill his mother’s wishes to be 1st in his family to graduate, ND academics aint easy.

    Kelly punished him and forced him to live in the freshman dorms of the acadmeics club, so basically a senior star football player housing with geeks and nerds.

    How many other players would do that?

    Not too mention he was returning to play with Tommy Rees again, an awful QB and still put up stats while be double-teamed every game.

    Outside of his wel rounded WR skills, try watch tape on this guy run blocking, he mauled LB’s his whole career.
