Draft Rewind 2013 – Sharrif Floyd – Minnesota Vikings

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about SHARRIF FLOYD: Florida, 6025 297 4.95. Junior entry. Two-year starter who has experience at both end and tackle as a sophomore. Thick upper and lower body build. Works through a double team block but has problems with low cut blocks. Uses his hands well to control a man scheme blocker. A disruptive penetrator who works to finish the play. Quick off the ball. Shows some surge to get by offensive tackles similar to what he did in the Texas A&M game to get past Luke Joeckel early in the season. Contains well as an edge player. Hard to tie up on a reach block. Struggles to rush the passer. Will stop his feet on a pass rush. Gets wired to blockers. Needs to change up his pass rush bag of tricks. Plays in a five man rotation where he is always fresh. Will lose the ball carrier at times. Draws a lot of double teams where he gets turned and walled on the line of scrimmage. Will slant and angle himself out of a play by defensive calls, but is slow to recover. Question instincts. Will run around blocks leaving a running lane at times. Makes some impressive splash plays, including blocked field goal attempts and a late sack (one of three for the year) against Florida State to take the Seminoles out of field goal range. Best position is as a one gap under tackle penetrator. A first year starter. 2012 stats: 46 T, 13 TFL, 3 sacks, 1 FF. OSR:4/17. No bench press at Combine – his choice. First round. (A-31 3/4, H-10 1/8, BP-DNP, 10-1.73).
