After being taken in the first round of the NFL Draft a little over a year ago, wide receiver Michael Floyd failed to consistently make an impact on the Arizona Cardinals’ offense.
However, that could all change in Floyd’s second year.
“With Arians running the offense and the quarterback position upgraded from horrible to possibly mediocre, Floyd could have a surprising season opposite Larry Fitzgerald,” says Frank Shwab of Yahoo.com.
The addition of the strong-armed Carson Palmer as well as reigning Coach of the Year Bruce Arians who is famed for his downfield passing attack could very well be conducive to Floyd’s production.
The attention drawn by Larry Fitzgerald should also ensure that Floyd sees one-on-one coverage the majority of the time, something the big-bodied receiver can surely take advantage of.
While his first year in the NFL was disappointing, Floyd gets somewhat of a pass because of the dysfunctional nature of the quarterback position and the offense as a whole. This year, however, there are no excuses, and the talented Michael Floyd will be expected to produce.
