Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd made an exclusive list being named to the ‘all-underrated team’ created by NFL.com.
Many expected Floyd to have a breakout year in 2015, but once again he was inconsistent throughout the course of the year. While his numbers were not awful, (47 catches for 841 years and six ouchdowns) they were underwhelming for his talent level.
Nevertheless, NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison placed Floyd along with Deandre Hopkins out of Houston as his two most underrated wide receivers. He had this to say about Floyd:
Like Hopkins, Floyd had myriad mediocre quarterbacks … a mediocrity melee … a morass of mediocrity … throwing him passes last season in Arizona. After Carson Palmer was hurt, Floyd was left to work with Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley — and yet, Floyd succeeded. Larry Fitzgerald still gets the headlines in the desert, but Floyd is the Cardinals’ WR1. Also, unlike many wideouts, he can block.
