NFL Supplemental Draft 2011: Michael Floyd Could Return To Notre Dame

Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd, once the apple of the St. Louis Rams' 2011 NFL Draft eye and most recently a candidate for the NFL Supplemental Draft following an indefinite suspension that stems from his March DUI, could return to Notre Dame for his senior season as planned in 2011, if head coach Brian Kelly has anything to do with it. Floyd was pegged as a potential top pick in the 2011 supplemental draft, which looks to proceed despite the NFL lockout after Terrelle Pryor declared he'd enter it on Tuesday. 

Floyd was seen as a possible fit in the supplemental draft, in which teams bid future draft picks for the rights to players who aren't eligible for the NFL Draft, immediately following the DUI, but he's never quite made a move in that direction. Now it may turn out that his indefinite suspension won't have involved actual suspension at all, leaving some doubt as to whether the punishment will end up fitting the time. 

In any case, the St. Louis Rams appear to have moved on themselves, selecting Austin Pettis and Greg Salas in the 2011 NFL Draft after missing out on the Julio Jones sweepstake and the sudden paucity of first-round caliber receivers.
