The Eagles have held a private workout with Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com.
Floyd (6-3, 220) had 100 catches for 1,147 yards as a senior. In his four-year career, Floyd had 271 catches for 3,686 yards and 37 receiving touchdowns. He ran a 4.47 second 40 at the combine.
NFL Network's Mike Mayock has Floyd as his second-ranked wide receiver, behind Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon. ESPN's Mel Kiper has him ranked in the same spot.
Greg Cosell of NFL Films advises to not put too much stock in Floyd's 40 time:
He ran very well in the 40-yard dash; his low time of 4.47 was faster than many thought he would run. I have seen Floyd on film and I like him, but he’s not an explosive vertical receiver, and he won’t be in the NFL. If evaluators allow his 40 time to change what he is on film, they are making a mistake.
Off the field, Floyd had three alcohol-related incidents in college. He was cited for drunken driving last year.
With DeSean Jackson re-signed and Jeremy Maclin under contract through 2013, the Eagles have their starting wide receivers for at least the next two seasons. But Floyd would give the Eagles some size, could work the middle of the field and be a legitimate red zone threat.
Behind Jackson and Maclin, the Eagles still have Jason Avant, Riley Cooper and Chad Hall on the roster.
Most mocks have Floyd going in the first half of the first round.
