New man crush?

Yes. The idea of getting Floyd in the 1st and maybe someone like TJ Barnes in the 6th sounds incredible to me. That way, we'd have a penetrating DT in Floyd and a run-stuffer in Barnes.

He's the only dt I want to take with the 1st pick besides star

Agree completely. I'm not even sure he lasts till 14 tbh. Have a feeling he's going to crush the combine and become a top ten lock....

north philly is really, really rough. It literally looked like a warzone when i was there. The dude sounds like hes got a good head on his shoulders. Damn this DT class is really good.

Great Interview. I would put money on this guy as our first round pick. He would bust his ass everyday to be the best he can be.

On the bright side, having him move into the top ten will hopefully push someone down like Warmack.

Getting this guy might be good or a Warmack (1st) J Williams (2nd) could also work

I don't think this is the guy for us. After watching tape on him, Floyd just doesn't make enough plays for him to be worthy of our #1 pick. Yes, he will make a great play every now and then but the consistency just isnt there compared to other comparable dt's in this years draft. I would rather have Jonathon Hankins or Sylvester Williams if we did draft a dt in the 1st, hopefully we don't. This team has so much more needs. We don't have the luxury of waiting on a dt to develop, or if he does at all when we have other needs at OL WR and DB. Just from past drafts, DT has a high bust rate and i think Floyd could be that

actually out of all the DT's i would trust Floyd to not be the bust out of all of them. Hankins is inconsistant as poo and is apparently not a 3 down player. Floyd busts his ass on every play and is hungry. I would take that every Sunday. I think Star and Jesse will be good though. Not sure about Sylvester Williams I'll have to look him up.

Can someone explain what exactly about this article is a must read? He's a football player who came from a rough background, and his coaches and family think he's talented. It's not a bad article, but its pretty generic, to be honest. You can find similar profiles on numerous players in the draft.
