Strengths Weaknesses

Listed at 6-0 and 185 pounds, he has a tall, lanky frame with good length to get his hands on receivers and make plays on the ball (13 career pass break-ups). Floyd has a physical demeanor for the position and doesn't shy from attacking the run, but needs to show better bend and stay close to the ground in his drops in order to quickly redirect his momentum. Based on his first few seasons at Michigan, he was an afterthought to be a pro prospect, but Floyd really came into his own as a junior and more is expected in 2012.

Player Overview

Although he was a safety all through high school, Floyd moved to cornerback soon after arriving in Ann Arbor and has started there since his freshman season.

Although his first few seasons had several bumps, he proved to be one of the team's most valuable defenders last season.

Floyd was a three-star defensive back recruit out of high school in South Carolina, choosing to go north to Michigan over offers from Georgia Tech, Tennessee and N.C. State.

After redshirting in 2008, he started a pair of games in 2009 followed by eight starts as a sophomore. Floyd became a full-time starter at cornerback last season, starting 12 games and finishing with 48 tackles and a team-best two interceptions.
