[CSNPhilly] INDIANAPOLIS – Sharrif Floyd can’t help but think about it. There’s a very good chance he’ll be a top-5 pick in the NFL draft.
He grew up in Philly. The Eagles have the fourth pick. It all adds up.
“Back to the City of Brotherly Love,” he said. “It would be good to go back home and see a lot of familiar faces and do something good for the city. I have thought about it.”
Defensive linemen don’t do their on-field workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine until Monday, but Floyd has gradually worked his way up through the first round on a lot of analysts’ draft boards and is now considered by many a top-five pick.
Floyd grew up in North Philly and never knew his father, who died when he was 3. He moved several times as a kid, living with an aunt for a while, his grandmother, another aunt.
Despite having little money and a difficult home life, Floyd never got in trouble and graduated from George Washington with a B average. He was heavily recruited out of G.W. and signed with Florida on Feb. 3, 2010.
My man Rif! I graduated from GW a year before Sharrif and have a lot of good friends who played him. Great kid, better work ethic. The sky is the limit, and all of GW is rooting for him. Top 5 pick out of GW?! That’s sick. Not sure he exactly fits with the Eagles right now, but it would be incredible to see Sharrif in Eagles green. But, on the other hand, I don’t want to have to boo him. I mean, I am an Eagles fan.
