Scouting Report on Sharrif Floyd

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Camp settingby Barry Every - 08/13/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeAs Good As It Gets
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Lateral PursuitDivision I Player
On the Hoof: Has a very wide and powerful base that makes it nearly impossible to knock him off the ball. Floyd also has good upper body size, with thick arms that he uses to drive interior linemen into the pocket. Looks an awful lot like Corey Simon at the same age.
Needs Improvement: He sometimes pops straight up off the snap of the ball and needs to be more consistent with his pad level at the point of attack. Coaches will also like to see him lose about 5-10 pounds of bad body weight, which will improve his overall speed.
Most Impressive: He gets so low and comes off the ball so hard that he can get underneath and overpower any lineman in the country. Floyd also plays with a nasty disposition and is looking to physically embarrass his opponent.
Conclusion: Should play as a freshman, and barring any injuries could be a three-years-and-out guy headed to the NFL.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
