Coach Ken Whisenhunt was on NFL Network today and mentioned that wide receiver Michael Floyd was the seventh-rated player on the Cards’ 120 board, and the second-rated receiver (who went unnamed, but it was undoubtedly Justin Blackmon.) Most analysts had six “elite” players at the top of the draft, and assuming the Cards had the same guys — Luck, Richardson, Blackmon, Griffin, Kalil and Claiborne — in the top six, then Floyd was the guy right after and the natural pick at No. 13 overall.
No word on what Floyd was graded. We know Patrick Peterson, the fifth pick last year, was a 90, however. In the end, you figure he had relatively lofty number. And the Cards definitely were happy to have him available.
