Scouting report: Floyd was instrumental in the 40-28 win over the Wolves, the first by the Falcons since 2008, ensuring the win with an end zone interception on San Ramon Valley’s final drive, tallying four tackles, rushing for 107 yards on 15 carries and catching a 58-yard touchdown pass. He also had a touchdown run of 24 yards, and rushed for 97 yards on 11 carries in the second half.

On defense, Floyd wrapped up well on tackles and showed a knack for run support from the nickel position. He is very physical on both sides of the ball, and when four-star USC commit Isaiah Langley was not on Division I prospect J.J. Koski, it was Floyd who locked down the 6-foot-1, 200-pound receiver, despite being just 5-foot-7, 166 pounds.

Floyd is a bundle of muscle who evades tacklers well and showed very good lateral quickness. He was able to make tacklers miss, but also was able to get tough yards, keeping his feet churning enough to move the pile and gain an extra yard or two after contact with multiple linebackers. He rallies to the ball on defense, showing good closing speed, particularly from behind. In the slot, he jams his receivers off the line and diverts routes.
