Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd is emerging as an impressive young player.

He caught 65 passes for 1,041 yards last season.

And Floyd has continued to impess Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer during spring workouts.

“The way Mike Floyd is playing just jumped out at me," Palmer told Arizona reporters.

Floyd, a 2012 first-round draft pick from Notre Dame, averaged 16 yards per catch last season.

Floyd said his maturation is a "part of growing up and taking everything seriously. This is my third year. You just have to prepare differently.”
