- ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 3. *Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida: Used predominately at defensive end in 2011, the 6-3, 303-pounder was moved inside to his more natural defensive tackle position in 2012 and flourished, earning first-team all-conference honors with 46 tackles, including a team-high 13 tackles for loss. While his Gators lost the Sugar Bowl to Teddy Bridgewater and Louisville, Floyd was dynamic, sacking the mobile sophomore quarterback twice and showing scouts flashes of untapped potential. Explosive and dedicated, he's viewed by scouts as a prototypical three-technique defensive tackle and a future Pro Bowl selection. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
