Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd is one of the top rated receivers entering the 2012 NFL Draft. He's also one of the few senior receivers rated highly and originally was going to play in the 2012 Senior Bowl. Floyd however has pulled out of the Senior Bowl according to a report by SI.com's Tony Pauline.

Outside of Baylor's Kendall Wright, Floyd was one of the few senior receivers who could really separate himself from a logjam of talented players at the position. He'd have faced off against the potential NFL caliber cornerbacks and given a first hand impression to some NFL coaches. Currently, Mocking The Draft rates Floyd as the second best receiver in the 2012 NFL Draft, but that could change depending on how some guys play in All-Star games and the NFL Combine.
