Bears fans, remember when we wanted Michael Floyd?

Michael Floyd was mocked to the Chicago Bears at number 19 in the first round by just about everybody leading up to the draft. Every expert saw a perfect marriage between the talented Floyd and the wide receiver deficient Bears. Floyd had a few incidents at Notre Dame that caused some to question his maturity, but his phenomenal combine performance had many weighing the on field plusses vs. the off field minuses.

But the Bears went with a veteran wide out via trade, so 1st round WR was off the board. They got a pass rusher in the first, and a talented WR (with question marks of his own) in the 2nd. And the potential headache in Floyd was off to the desert. The Arizona Cardinals plucked the former Fighting Irish receiver and the buyer's remorse could be settling in already.

Imagine if you will having a chance to be mentored by someone at your position, someone that's a Pro Bowler, and someone that is racking up Hall Of Fame Numbers. Would you blow off three workouts in a row? That's exactly what Michael Floyd did, by missing 3 straight workouts with Larry Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald charged Floyd with a DWI - "don't want it" - not the best way to endear yourself to your new teammates. Those mock drafts seems so long ago...
