I was going to leave this in the draft forum, but since some of you actually have talked yourselves into thinking Sanu is a better option in the 2nd, or maybe Glenn in the 1st, i have to get this out.
[QUOTE]Michael Floyd - WR - Player
The New York Post reports Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd is being "eyed" by the Jets.
Floyd will likely already be off the board by the time the Jets choose at No. 16, but they will apparently give consideration to making him a 6-foot-3, 220-pound complement to Santonio Holmes if he falls. ESPN New York's Rich Cimini said last week he didn't envision the Jets selecting Floyd. Asked to compare Floyd to a current NFL player by the New York Post, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly interestingly said Bears MLB Brian Urlacher. "(Floyd) plays with the same passion, the same toughness, the same spirit," Kelly said. "He just loves to play the game.’’[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=sec.101row23;4442929]Most likely. I just hope the Bills fall in love with Reiff and take him.[/QUOTE]
Because Patsfan is the no.
[QUOTE] Here's why this selection won't be Reiff:
1. Chan Gailey said he wants long offensive tackles who can anchor. Riley Reiff's arms are short, so he doesn't fit the description.
2. Gailey and Buddy Nix marveled at the depth at the position in the 2012 NFL Draft. Gailey also said that Chris Hairston did a good job at left tackle last year, which is fairly true. Buffalo will probably select a tackle in Rounds 2-4 to provide competition with Hairston.
3. The Bills did not bring Reiff in for a pre-draft visit. They did so with C.J. Spiller two years ago and they took him. Why wouldn't they ask Reiff to come in?
4. Buffalo loves to pick players from the southeast part of the country. In fact, nearly everyone they've brought in for a visit is from the southeast. [/QUOTE]
If you promise me Floyd will not be an injury issue, then he's going to be a great NFL player. I still prefer to stay away though because I believe he'll have injury problems... Did so basically every single year at Notre Dame. Never really put up that clean year. Even last year was missing hugely important snaps in the bowl game.
[QUOTE=JB1089;4442968]If Floyd falls to us and we don't take him, I'm going to lose my ****.[/QUOTE]
Why would you freak that badly?
The guy gets hurt. Has done so his entire career at Notre dame. I've projected him as a first rounder since he was a freshman because I've watched every single game he's played in and think highly of him, but the injury concerns are enough for me to be scared of him. Even last year he was missing KEY snaps in that bowl game due to injury.
If I knew for a fact that injury would not be a problem, I'd absolutely take him. But in my experience following all sports, certain players tend to get hurt more than others. I think RG3 will prove to have injury problems (concussions), and I think the same with Floyd.
