Overview

Flowers may lack the height that is so en vogue with NFL scouts looking at safeties, but he possesses all of the other characteristics teams desire. Blessed with good quickness, physicality and pure speed, Flowers elected to leave Virginia Tech after his junior season and second consecutive All-American campaign.

Analysis

Physical with his use of hands at the line of scrimmage to disrupt the timing of the receiver and quarterback. ... Smooth hip turn in his transition to shadow receivers in and out of their breaks. ... Good break on the ball and shows a second gear when the ball is in the air. ... Productive interceptor. ... Explosive hitter that can separate the ball from the receiver. ... Aggressive in run support. Negatives: Lacks the height scouts prefer at the position. ... Isn't always the sum of his parts. ... Struggles with consistency. ... Loves to intimidate with his explosive hitting, but fails to wrap up too often. ... Very aggressive and can beaten by double-moves.
