2016 NFL Draft: Bears Pick Leonard Floyd - Scouting Report, Highlight Video And More

With the 9th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears have selected OLB Leonard Floyd out of Georgia. The Bears traded up to make this pick. 

Position: Outside Linebacker

Measurables: 6’6’’, 244 pounds, 4.60 40-yard dash, 33 1/8 arms

Floyd’s exact NFL positions is unclear. Floyd is a versatile athlete with great bend, but is rail-thin. The pass rushing potential is there with Floyd and he should be an early pick, although the lack of bulk is a major concern. He’s likely an OLB in a 3-4 scheme, but some think he could play ILB. If he’s taken by a 4-3 team, he’ll likely be a James Harrison-type SAM/BUCK OLB.
