Sharrif Floyd

What are your thoughts?

Is this a #1 overall type guy?

STRENGTHS - Floyd has the bulk and length required to play on the LOS. He displays solid natural strength at the POA when playing with proper leverage, and excels at stacking and shedding his man in time to make plays on runs in the box. He demonstrates very good read and react skills, and is surprisingly efficient at taking angles to the boundary and staying square to his target. He plays with non-stop effort from whistle to whistle which allows him to make plays other athletes his size simply can't.

WEAKNESSES - While Floyd generally displays solid QAB he is not innately explosive off the snap and struggles to consistently penetrate gaps. Once he gets his momentum up to full speed he struggles to break down and finish plays, losing out on numerous sack opportunities in games I graded. At times he gets too upright at the snap and can be driven off the ball on run plays. He lacks refinement in his pass rush moves, and must rely primarily on his hustle and ability to maul his man to get to the QB.

SUMMARY - Sharrif Floyd plays with a combination of power and competitiveness that few linemen can match. He flashes outstanding stack and shed ability and demonstrates very good football instincts. His most impressive trait is his ability to pursue laterally to the edge and finish by taking excellent angles and staying square to the RB, allowing him to adjust to cutbacks. What keeps him from being an elite prospect is his average burst off the snap and bad habit of getting upright at the snap, as can be moved off the ball despite his excellent natural strength. 34 teams will consider him a 5-technique end, while 43 teams would be wise to put him at LDE on rushing downs, and kick him inside to rush the passer on 3rd down. If he can learn to play with more consistent leverage off the ball and use his hands to set up a wider variety of pass moves, he has a chance to develop into one of the most versatile defensive linemen in this draft class.
