The Falcons had 16 people, including high executive, coaches and scouts on hand – in part – to watch Floyd at the Pro Day. Floyd is considered a first-round draft pick. Several NFL teams believe that he has some pass-rushing ability and has shown that he can play in space.
Floyd was a second-team All-SEC pick last season when he had 10.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. Over his career, Floyd had 28.5 tackles for losses and 17 sacks.
The Falcons were also impressed that Floyd went to Hargrave Military Academy to work on his academics.
