Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

After overcoming a tough childhood without his parents and being raised by his grandmother, University of Florida's Sharrif Floyd is a defensive tackle with some versatility to where he can line up on the field. He projects now as a 4-3 DT and could eventually grow into a powerful 3-4 DE later in his career.

While not overpowering in his strength, Floyd can anchor well when he keeps his hips low. Long arms allow him to disrupt his blocker's assignment and with his above-average motor, he brings intense effort every play. Good first step, decent speed but not a great pass rusher at this time. Plays tight and must learn to bend when turning the corner around an offensive tackle. Average bull rush.

Floyd will need to be groomed wherever he lands since while he is very versatile, he's a jack of all trades. Doesn't generate much push against the run and he fares better when he shakes loose early in order to flow towards the football. His work ethic is not a problem, yet he may need to hit the weight room to add a little more bulk through his frame.

Given his great measurables, some scouts will really like his ceiling. Others might see a project who, despite his size and quickness, lacks the proper skill set to fit in their system as a tweener between DT and DE.

Floyd projects as an early first round prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft.
