72: Brandon Floores, OL (Sr.) — Incarnate Word
UIW was one of the best storylines in the FCS last year. The Cardinals went from 1-10 in 2017 to a 6-2 record in the Southland Conference to win a share of the title along with a playoff berth.
The offense was explosive, and at the center of that unit on the offensive line was Floores. At 6-foot-4, 292 pounds, Floores earned First Team All-Conference honors for his play.
He now enters his third year of starting as UIW looks to take another big step forward as a program.
"I’m ready to work every day," Floores told NFL Draft Diamonds. "No matter what’s going on outside of football, when I step on that field it’s go time."
