Michael Floyd taken by the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL Draft


Former wide receiver star, Michael Floyd, put his DUI behind him and was selected 13th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. He will be along side the great Larry Fitzgerald in the desert state.

A year following his arrest in South Bend, IND, Floyd was ready to move on from the embarrassing moment in his life.

“I just basically told [Cardinals management] it was a bad decision,” Floyd said. “I learned from it, and I moved on. I know I can’t be like every other college student, just doing what a college student does, because the spotlight is on me. They wanted to see if I had improvements since that time, and I have.” -Chicago Sun-Times

Floyd ended his Irish career with a school-record 17 100-yard receiving games. He finished his last season with 100 catches for 1,147 yards and 9 touchdowns.
