As someone who really does have short arms (birth defect), that was HILARIOUS!

If I could tailor the mental makeup of my ideal football player, I'd make sure to include Floyd's will to win and interest in learning; if you were listing qualities you would want in a representative of your organization, Floyd would have at least two thirds of the list. Those two things make Floyd as close to a sure thing as there is in this NFL Draft, in my mind, and are likely to serve him well for the rest of his life. (Floyd using @sharrifrozay as his Twitter handle briefly is also endearing, as using Sharrif Rozay Floyd as his Facebook name.)

My only concerns about Floyd at the NFL level are about his lack of a standout physical attribute. He's not huge, or unusually fast or strong, and he might struggle to be more than a solid starter because of that. There are worse problems than a top draft pick turning into merely a solid player, but Floyd's floor being higher than many other prospects doesn't mean that his floor will be a satisfying level of play.

But if I've learned anything about Sharrif Floyd over the last three years, it's that you can bet on him to not disappoint you. You'll make your money back.

from a day before the Draft...


According to NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline, Sharrif Floyd is expected to slip all the way from the No. 3 overall spot and Oakland to the No. 10 position and the Tennessee Titans. Iím told the Raiders are unlikely to draft Floyd, even if they canít move down from the third slot. Word is the Tennessee Titans at ten look like a good fit.

For weeks now, Floyd has been a virtual lock at No. 3 overall to the Oakland Raiders. But the Raider have been getting weird in the hours leading up to the draft and now either want to trade down to take cornerback D.J. Hayden or plan to simply Dion Waiter him and make him a top 3 selection. But the Raiders' loss is a major gain for the Titans. Floyd is considered to be the best defensive tackle in the draft, and if he falls to the Titans heíll fill an immediate need.

would this imply that they had Warmack higher than Floyd? I was surprised the Raiders passed on him at 13, let alone that he fell all the way to us!!! Dancing

I love that Floyd probably have a massive chip on his shoulder. You keep hearing, top 5, top 10 pick. And then he slides. You know he's going, I'm going to prove I should have been in the top 10. Good attitude and good team to go to.
