2012 NFL Draft Grades: Cardinals Receive A 'B' For Selecting Michael Floyd

The first round of the 2012 NFL Draft is in the books and SB Nation's resident NFL guru Joel Thorman has placed his stamp of approval/disapproval on each and every pick with his first round draft grades.

The Arizona Cardinals did well in the eyes of Thorman, placing a hearty 'B-Good But Not Elite' grade on their selection of wide receiver Michael Floyd.

Cardinals: Michael Floyd teams with Larry Fitzgerald. An offensive tackle could've been a consideration as well. Receivers should soon be the strength of the Cards again.

Even though they missed out on a lot of solid offensive lineman talent, Floyd will likely be a fan favorite and big time playmaker for years to come down in the desert.
