Michael Floyd dropped two spots on Mel Kiper's Big Board this week and fell four spots on Todd McShay's draft board.

Kiper has Floyd at No. 20 , behind fellow wide receivers Justin Blackmon (No. 5) and Kendall Wright (No. 15).
Kiper: How fast he runs will be a big story in Indy. Floyd can do a lot; he's able to beat you short or deep. Has a big frame to beat smaller cornerbacks. Played at 227 pounds in 2010 but dropped a little weight this past season and played quicker.

Kiper has Floyd third among receivers on his top five by position list , behind Oklahoma State's Blackmon and Baylor's Wright. Kiper also has Harrison Smith as the No. 2 safety behind Alabama's Mark Barron, writing that Smith is right in the picture for a potential first-round selection.

McShay, meanwhile, has Floyd at No. 26 on his draft board , with Blackmon (No. 10) and Wright (No. 23) the only receivers ahead of him.
McShay: Floyd answered questions about his off-the-field character in 2011 and continued to use his size and ball skills to make plays downfield.
