Floyd gives Minnesota a natural replacement for defensive tackle Pat Williams, who is retiring.


The sad thing is that that's not entirely wrong. We've had guys playing his position since he left, but no one's replaced Pat yet.

He has Kevin Williams to learn under. I think the pick was tremendous.

Yeah I don't see any downside to it at all. They said everything checked out...I love it!

Sharrif Floyd said he weighs 300 pounds but could bulk up as high as 330, as he was in high school. Fla. linemen slim down for play speed.

The more I think about it, the more I love this pick.

For one, he'll be surrounded by Jared Allen, Kevin Williams, Brian Robison and Everson Griffen. Thats a scary Dline. Christian Ballard will also rotate in (Who I'm guessing will replace Kevin Williams next year)

He's a talented guy surrounded by a talented team. He could make a huge impact very quickly for us.

and now Greenbay just drafted food for him, in Eddie Lacy. Wink

Floyd's own story is kind of a Philly version of "The Blind Side." For stretches of high school, Floyd lived with his guidance counselor's family. He also had lived with his great-grandmother. As a senior, he lived for a time in the basement of a friend's house. The school held a bake sale to help send him to an all-star game, where he turned heads. He was a no-doubt-about-it blue-chip recruit, with offers from Penn State, Ohio State and other powers.

A year ago, he was adopted by a Chester County couple who had earlier given him money, which had caused him to be suspended for two games as a Florida sophomore.

This week, Floyd said his first purchase would be a home for his great-grandmother in Atlanta, where he has extended family. She had been his most stabilizing influence growing up in North Philadelphia, he said.

Murphy, the George Washington principal, said she asked Floyd to speak at this year's graduation. While Floyd was at her school, Murphy said she kept hearing the same thing, from teachers, coaches and guidance counselors: "They all believed in him," Murphy said. "I began to take note of him." She remembers how as an underclassman, Floyd was a mentor to ninth graders, a pretty effective one.

sounds like a real class act, particularly for a 20 year old.

http://www.draftcountdown.com/Results/Review-B.php

For my money this was the biggest shock of round one. I canít imagine anyone anticipated Floyd falling this far. Most had him in the Top 3 overall to Oakland! I have never been quite as high on Floyd as most and couldnít understand all the adulation and praise being heaped upon him by some members of the media. I had Floyd as the third defensive tackle in my rankings and was on the record as saying that I didnít think he was as good of a pro prospect as Fletcher Cox, who went #12 overall a year ago. However, even though I was skeptical about Floyd as a Top 5 pick itís nearly impossible to argue with the tremendous value he offers at this point. Kevin Williams is about to turn 33-years-old and only has one year left on his contract so Floyd will be groomed as the heir-apparent. North Carolina DT Sylvester Williams, who I had pegged for Minnesota in my final mock draft, would have been a nice fit as well but when Floyd unexpectedly fell into their laps this decision must have been a relatively easy one.

Love this pick.
If u gave me #1 pick, I would take this guy.
He is going to be a beast for us.
I think we're one of the top D-Line

If the team had a true stout one technique player to rotate with Floyd, the line would be flawless.
