Here is what you need to know before picking Floyd.
Average Draft Position: 100.3 (ESPN)
Position Rank: 33 (ESPN’s Matthew Berry)
Suggested Round: 10
Injury Assessment: Floyd missed four games last season with a variety of injuries and has played all 16 games just once in the last four seasons. He will likely miss a few weeks this year as well, but currently has no major injuries heading into the 2012 season.
Season Projections: 119 points (ESPN, Standard Scoring)
Bye Week: 7
Splits Situation: Floyd has the potential to emerge as Philip Rivers’ favorite wide receiver this year. His competition for Rivers’ attention is Robert Meachem, whose potential has him ranked higher than Floyd by most experts.
Wide Receivers to Take Before Floyd: Robert Meachem, Michael Crabtree, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Kenny Britt
Wide Receivers to Take After Floyd: Sidney Rice, Titus Young, Mike Williams, Mario Manningham
Floyd is an ideal deep threat for Rivers because of his size, but Meachem has the same skill set and could take away many of his opportunities. Floyd’s upside as a big target in the Chargers offense makes him a smart late-round pick to add depth to your wide receiving corps.
