Destined to be frequently targeted in 2013, the 23-year-old Floyd should flourish in Bruce Arians’ vertical passing offense.
Establishing numerous school records in South Bend, the 6-foot-2, 220 pound Floyd is a tough and physically imposing athlete who understands the game and thrives on third downs.
Blessed with tremendous hands and able to complete the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds, the native Minnesotan will greatly benefit playing alongside newly acquired quarterback Carson Palmer.
Performing well last season as a Raider in “The Town,” the 33-year-old Palmer has connected on 189 scores, against 130 picks, for 29,465 yards since debuting as a professional.
Therefore, Floyd should be able to capitalize on one-on-one isolation routes downfield and become a brilliant playmaker in the Valley of the Sun.
If able to avoid getting shitfaced, expect Michael Floyd to fly as a Cardinal this autumn.by
