08:04 AM ET 03.22 | One AFC GM called Sharrif Floyd "the complete package ... a player who has all of the tools to be great in this league," and it's quite likely the Florida defensive tackle won't last past the fifth pick of the draft. [There's] even been some talk that he could be taken first overall by the Kansas City Chiefs. But Floyd isn't sweating the outcome. He knows his time is coming. And he believes he's destined for great things when it gets here. "I think with more experience, more technique, I can be one of the greats," Floyd said. "And that's my goal -- to leave this game as one of the greats. And probably sometime down the line, to be looked at as a legend."

Wow.... The last "Legendary" UF football player was Tim Tebow.

At least he's optimistic. Nothing like having high hopes.

I was thinking the same thing, Mel. Confidence is always an asset.

Is he really that good??? I live in SEC country and didn't really hear about him until February. I knew he played for UF, and was a decent DL prospect, but top 10 or no. 1 overall?? No way

He was overshadowed by Clowney most of the season, but since Clowney can't come out until next year, he's now getting a closer look, and everyone likes what they see. But yeah, I'm not sure he's a number one pick, either.

I can foresee the headline when he gets drafted, "There's a new Sharrif in town!"

And we heard it here first. I hope the Bozos writing those stories give you some credit.

I did go to UF so I'm a little biased but I watched all of their games and him and Elam where the reason a team that had absolutely ZERO OFFENSE almost won the SEC EAST.

Mind you that team had no elite pass rusher and average at best LB corp, yet they gave up about 14 PPG without an offense. It was all Shariff up front. He stopped the run AND got pass rush up the middle. He reminds me of John Henderson.

I'm about where you are on this.

He is good, and can get better. If the first team to pick needed a strong D-lineman, that'd be about the only way he'd go overall first. He's not "the best player on the board period", but for the right team with the right need, he could go first -- but not likely.
