The Eagles have held a private workout with Notre Dame WR Malcolm Floyd, according to a report from Scout.com. Floyd is considered by some to be the 2nd best WR in this class and looking at his physical gifts, it's not hard to see why. At 6-3, 220 pounds he's got prototypical size. Some scouts decried his lack of top end speed in college, but he did manage a 4.47 40 at the combine.
Here's what NFL.com had to say about him.
Floyd has been a game changer at the collegiate level and possesses the size, aggressiveness and game experience to make a difference early in his transition to the NFL. Floyd has been an extremely productive threat both deep and in possession for the Irish throughout his career, as well as a physical blocker and a reliable third-down playmaker. His on-field maturity, physical nature and ability to make the big catch will outshine some off-field mishaps, as Floyd projects to be one of the top receivers off the board.
As is the case with a few of these guys that have worked out with the Eagles recently, he does have some character issues having been arrested for DUI last March. Still, most scouts have come away impressed after speaking with him and he's drawn praise for his on-field demeanor.
I'm not entirely sure how interested the Eagles might be in taking at WR #15, but Floyd's size would make him an interesting compliment to the Eagles current corps of wideouts. Plus, as a player that projects to come off the board near their pick, its really incumbent on the team to do their due diligence on all these guys.
Thanks to PhiladelphiaEagles for the tip. And ironically, Floyd just came off the board at #9 in our community mock draft.
