OLB Leonard Floyd
The Packers will likely be in the hunt for a pass rusher at some point in the draft, and Leonard Floyd is a name some have projected to be taken at No. 27.
For all of Floyd’s talent and potential in the NFL, whoever drafts him is taking a risk. There are two major red flags for me: Floyd is very thin and needs to add strength and bulk to his frame to be able to make the adjustment to the NFL. Despite being listed as an edge rusher, Floyd spent a lot of time playing inside, which TheReadOptional.com’s Ollie Connolly touches on in his draft ‘boom-or-bust’ article:
"“He is a sudden athlete who peculiarly played inside far more than being a pure edge-rusher at Georgia. As a freakish athlete with natural pass-rushing skills you would expect consistent dominance and big production at the college level, the question with Floyd is whether it is a him problem, or a coaching staff/misuse problem.”"
To land Floyd the Packers will almost certainly need to use a first-round pick. At No. 27, there will be safer options than going after the Georgia product.
