According to Greg Cosell of NFL Films, the Kansas City Chiefs should select Florida’s defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd with the first pick in next month’s NFL draft.
On NFLN, Greg Cosell on Sharrif Floyd: He is an All-Pro type player from Day 1. He is so gifted, he can play anywhere on the defensive line.

Cosell told the NFL Network:
“I think Sharrif Floyd is going to be an All-Pro type player right from Day One. I’ve spoken to people in the SEC who say he’s as good a kid as he is a player, and that’s really important when you draft someone No. 1.”
“He’s my favorite player that I’ve seen on tape, and I’ve seen an awful lot of players. He’s an explosive athlete playing defensive tackle. He has really light feet. He’s so gifted physically that he can play anywhere on the line, and I think he will become, like J.J. Watt, a much better pass rusher in the NFL than he was in college football.”
Floyd, a 6’3 303 lbs defensive tackle, played defensive end last year. He recorded 115 tackles, 3 sacks and 20 tackles for a loss in three seasons at Florida.
