Even though DeSean Jackson has signed a long-term deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, wide receiver remains a position that warrants concern.
According to Scout.com, Michael Floyd worked out for the Eagles privately last Monday and is worthy of a mid-first-round selection.
Floyd enjoyed an extremely productive collegiate career and leaves Notre Dame with five receiving records.
At 6’3”, 220 pounds, the Irish alumni would give Philly an immediate upgrade in the slot, and more importantly, the red zone.
Floyd runs pristine routes, has strong hands and is a proven deep threat. His size and physical nature would be a welcomed addition to a receiving corps that is centered on speed.
Although Philadelphia has three solid receivers in Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Jason Avant, their top two targets missed time last season due to injury and suspension. The addition of Floyd would not only give Michael Vick another dynamic weapon, but also provide the team with an insurance policy.
