Michael Floyd Goes From Studying In Classes To Studying The Playbook

When Michael Floyd came off the field after practice on the first day of mandatory minicamp, he was asked about his new contract, and he said he wasn't worried at all about and that he would likely have shown up anyway. But now that he is in the pros, things are a little different, but not too different.

When asked about the biggest difference between being in college and in the pros so far, he gave one of the standard answers, "I think that it mostly is the speed of the game." But then he added on a lighter note, "you don't have to worry about four or five classes every single day."

But he still is studying. He has to. And Larry Fitzgerald makes sure of it.

Floyd noted that "it's pretty tough to keep your head in the playbook." So what does Larry do?

He is "just making sure that I do keep my head in the playbook, because that's the only homework I have," said Floyd. "He tries to make sure I make less errors on the field and also helps me on the field making sure that I know what defenses look like."

Floyd does a good job at studying and, while still being bothered by a quad injury, Ken Whisenhunt sees just enough to be reminded of the reasons why the team drafted him.

What are you expecting out of Floyd before the season starts?
