A former four-star recruit from Eastman, Georgia, Floyd is likely bound for the NFL Draft. However, he will also have one season of eligibility remaining if he transfers. Teams will definitely line up for his services, as he has 174 tackles (26.5 for a loss) to go with 17 sacks and five forced fumbles.

Needless to say, if Floyd does indeed leave, the college football landscape and Georgia’s defense could wind up changing dramatically, and one team on the collegiate or professional level could wind up getting an incredible talent.
