The San Francisco 49ers selected Floyd with the 28th overall selection of the 1994 draft. He had an impressive rookie campaign, rushing for six touchdowns and playing in every game. One of his best performances came during the playoffs when he became the first rookie in NFL history to score three touchdowns in one game. Floyd also helped San Francisco win the Super Bowl his rookie year. He spent the first four years of his career with the 49ers and the last three (1998-2000) with the Carolina Panthers.
