Cardinals WR Michael Floyd Will Enter Camp As 4th Receiver
The temptation to bolster the expectations for wide receiver Michael Floyd is no doubt hard to resist but word is the Cardinals’ coaching staff appears determined to stay true to form regarding the use of rookies and allow their first-round wideout to develop at his own pace, Dan Arkush of Pro Football Weekly reports. Arkush hears that Floyd will probably enter training camp as the No. 4 wideout behind good buddy and heartfelt mentor Larry Fitzgerald, Early Doucet and Andre Roberts. “They couldn’t be happier with his work ethic,” one daily team observer said of Floyd, who apparently balked initially when the team decided to trim his practice time because of a strained quad. “The people at Notre Dame really praised that part of his game. Ideally, though, I think he could stand to lose a few pounds before camp starts.”
I'm not sure he will move up the depth chart that quick guys. With all of Whienhunt's pre-snap shifts it might take him a while to grasp the offense and stay out of the doghouse for missed assignments and routes.
He isnt quite ready to be an ever situation guy. He needs some work, especially getting off the line.
His upside however is unreal. He was in the convo with Green and Jones as to who was going to be the top WR in the 2011 class for good reason. IMO Floyd has a much higher ceiling then Jones (much lower floor as well).
Reminds me alot of Andre Johnson. However he needs to work on getting of the line and in and out of his cuts better
