Sharrif Floyd moves his pro day to March 22

Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd’s stock is rising and he doesn’t want to stem the tide by taking part in his pro day at less than 100 percent.

Albert Breer of the NFL Network and NFL.com reports that Floyd will hold his pro day on March 22 instead of taking part in Florida’s official pro day on March 12. Floyd hurt his ankle at the combine and wants to be fully recovered before he shows off for scouts from around the league.

Floyd put up strong numbers at the combine, running very fast for a player his size and confirming everything we saw in terms of his athleticism during his collegiate career. Another strong performance at his pro day should cement Floyd’s spot as one of the first players off the board in April.

A glowing report from Greg Cosell of NFL Films has given some momentum to Floyd’s ascent up the draft board. Cosell said he was worthy of being selected first overall by the Chiefs. If he did, he’d be the first defensive lineman to go first overall since Mario Williams in 2006.
