I've seen Floyd be very good and make some ridiculous catches on a consistent basis for 4 years now. I actually think he's the best WR with the ball in the air that's coming out this year, by a fair margin too.
Blackmon is so good with the ball in his hands. He's way better than all of the other receivers in this area, and that's what puts him at the top.
If Floyd drops out of the 1st round then he'll be the steal of the draft. I don't see why the USC game means anything. He's had good games against them in previous years. A bad game from Floyd means less than a bad game from any of the other receivers because he has a 4 year resume that they don't.
Jeffrey's supposed weight issues don't bother me. He puts up big numbers against SEC defenses. He's a little chubby. Doesn't seem to be affecting his play any.
More than anything this is what gives me boners. ...Blackmon of course has elite talent once he has the ball in his hands like you mentioned, but in my books that icing. I want the cake. Floyd will move the chains every. damn. game. So few WRs that have that gut killer instinct to just come down with the ball. Regardless of coverage, and the number of bodies around him.
Activity around Floyd literally does not phase him. You could be shooting a machine gun 2 feet away and he'll never lose focus on the ball.
