He can certainly be a good pro, but not a great one.
Floyd's shuttle drill suggests otherwise; his first step is pretty spectacular.
You're right, though - his technique needs work. That said, again, he's 20
. With his hands being as quick as they are, there's no reason at all he couldn't have outstanding pass-rush moves.
I just don't see what you're seeing here, I guess. Floyd's first step is absolutely elite. The rest of it is just a technique issue that comes from being a young kid.
