Georgia outside linebacker Leonard Floyd would be a “perfect fit” for the Bears at No. 11 overall, ESPN analyst Todd McShay said Tuesday.
“I think Leonard Floyd belongs in the top 10 and could go even ashigh as No. 10,” he said. “I think he’d be a perfect fit for what Chicago’slooking for, in terms of a versatile linebacker that can be that outside linebacker, also can play some off the ball. He can drop into coverage on occasion, but what Floyd does best is rush the passer off the edge. Great initial burst, the ability to bend around the edge.”
The Bears interviewedFloyd, who recorded a team-best 4 1/2 sacks last year, Thursday at Halas Hall.
“I think while his production didn’t always match up, and the way they used him at Georgia may be different than the way he’s used in the NFL,” McShay said, “I just think he has a chance to be more productive in the NFLthan he was even in college. I think for a ’34’ team in Chicago, that would be a really good fit.”
