Potential first-round draft pick Michael Floyd excelled at the Notre Dame pro day Tuesday, and the soft-spoken receiver knew it.
“I think it went well,” Floyd told NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock after the workout. “I performed well, you know, I caught all my balls, ran good routes, was explosive off the ball, (and did) what I think teams wanted to see.”
Floyd, who was suspended from the Notre Dame football team for a time in 2011 after being charged with a DUI, faces potential questions about his character. Mayock asked Floyd how he handles the interview process.
“I come from the gut,” Floyd said. “I tell them from my heart that, you know, what I did was a mistake, and I learned from it, and I moved on.”
Floyd said at the next level, teams will expect him to carry himself appropriately.
“Now that I’m going to the NFL,” Floyd said, “you’ve got to act like a professional; you can’t be like a kid out there, just doing whatever you want to do; you’ve got to act like a professional.”
