The 2012 NFL Combine wraps up today in Indianapolis, and we'll be looking at one player from six different positional groups of interest to the Buffalo Bills that stood out this past week. At wide receiver, Michael Floyd of Notre Dame made a great - and much-needed - impression.

When he's been on the field in college, few have matched Floyd's production. In four years with the Irish, he hauled in 271 passes (including 100 as a senior) for 3,686 yards and 37 touchdowns. He answered some questions about his speed in Indianapolis, clocking a 4.47-second 40-yard dash - impressive for a 6'3", 220-pound player.

With athletic and production concerns out of the way, Floyd's only remaining hurdles to a very lofty draft position are his injury history - he missed seven games in his first two seasons - and off-field concerns. Floyd was suspended from the team for five full months last year for an alcohol-related citation; though he did not miss any games, it's still something he'll be asked about straight through the end of April.

Still, it was a great showing for Floyd, who has the type of size and speed that the Bills are reportedly looking for in a starting receiver.
