Default Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

Height: 6'3
Weight: 303lbs
Position; Defensive Tackle
Class: Junior

Positives:

- Decent length and adequate bulk
- Long arms
- Displays a nice swim move
- Positional versatility, can play DT or DE
- Plays with good power when leverage is good
- Shows an ability to get after the passer


Negatives:

- Could add more good weight
- Can be pushed way back in the run game
- Needs to develop counters in the pass game
- Once he is blocked he tends to stay blocked
- Could play with more intensity


Overall:

Floyd is a player who impressed me more when I wasn't specifically watching just him. He does make some nice plays which jump off the screen at you, however a lot of the times he is completely washed out in the run game or single blocked in the pass game. I know he has been mentioned as a possible 34 DE however I really don't like that fit in the NFL. He could be fine at it, especially somewhere like Houston or Dallas etc, however I don't see him as a 2 gap end. I think his best fit will come as a 3 technique where he will be allowed to attack offensive linemen and penetrate. From watching some of Florida's games this year he is at his best when he wins at the snap and gets up field.

The biggest issue I have at this moment with Floyd is not the fact he gets pushed back in the run game, but how far he gets pushed back. Against FSU in the 3rd quarter they lined up in shotgun with 1 back and 1 TE. Floyd lined up at the 3 and at the snap was driven back 3 yards from the line of scrimmage by the RG and RT. 2 plays later on the goal line he is pushed back into the endzone by a single block from the LG.

I'm not sure if it's a need to add more strength, an issue with leverage or simply a fact that he struggles to anchor, however as a run defender I find him very underwhelming unless he is asked to shoot gaps.

Overall, I still think he has really good upside, particularly as an interior pass rusher and in today's NFL that holds a lot of value. However I would like to see more consistency and fire from him.

I would give him a solid 2nd round value as of now but would take Star Lotulelei, Sheldon Richardson, Jonathan Hankins, Sylvester Williams, Jesse Williams and Kawann Short over him at DT right now.
