Michael Floyd: Sport Science Freak

12 Comments

After Skylar Diggins got a tour of the ESPN Sport Science lab, there were plenty of people convinced she was more than just a pretty face… and an All-American, Player of the Year candidate. Now former Irish wide receiver Michael Floyd got his chance to impress in the laboratory.

Here’s a quick segment on Floyd courtesy of Sport Science, and a nice reminder that whatever Floyd did on the field wasn’t a product of scheme or lack of other offensive options, but merely because he’s a freak athlete. Between clocking a sub-4.5 forty time at the combine and showing leaping skills that are favorable to athletes like Derrick Rose and Plaxico Burress, it’s a bittersweet reminder that Notre Dame has to replace one of the best offensive weapons in the country.
