We're reaching the fringes of our NFL Draft Profile series, and our next look is at a player who stepped up his game and ended the season with some nice recognition: free safety Clint Floyd.

Height: 5'10"

Weight: 195 pounds

Age: 22

College Career: Saw action in 44 games, with 23 starts. Blossomed over last two seasons. Became primary starter at free safety in 2011, and turned in terrific year. Led team with four interceptions, along with 69 tackles and two forced fumbles. Named second team All-Pac 12. Career totals: 121 tackles, six interceptions, three forced fumbles.

Strengths: Typically a sure tackler. Despite size, not afraid to put a helmet on a ball carrier. Has a nose for the ball, and has the ability to make splash plays. Good return skills with the ball in his hand. Diligent worker who has a desire to continuously improve.

Weaknesses: Does not have good size for the safety spot in the NFL. Ran a 4.66 40-yard dash at ASU's Pro Day, which is on the slow side. Struggles in coverage, and with his size, will match-up unfavorably with NFL tight ends. Best option seems to be as a special teams contributor and developmental reserve safety.

Round Projection: 6th to undrafted

Prediction: Undrafted, priority free agent signing
