The more plays Floyd made last year, the more he celebrated. To me, that was a signal that he was no longer playing like a robot and playing like someone who finally knew he was a badass. By the end of the season, we saw that little dance of his quite a bit.
Floyd was credited with 42 tackles and 4.5 sacks last year, definitely a good season for him, but he is ready to make a huge leap forward now. He possesses an incredible motor for a man his size, and made a lot of plays just from extra effort running down the field to get to the ball. If you think that’s normal for a 310-pound-plus defensive lineman, I would suggest you watch more film. Now that his technique has come around to match his physical ability and motor, Floyd is ready to really show out this season.
It doesn’t hurt that he has a lot of talent around him with guys like Brian Robinson and Everson Griffen at defensive end and the occasional cameo from Anthony Barr as an edge rusher. All those guys chasing the quarterback up into the pocket should make it even easier for Sharrif Floyd’s sack numbers to shoot up this season.
