Draft Analysis:

Patriots get good value for Flowers in the 4th round. His staple is power and ability to control the line of scrimmage. Bill Belichick likes to rotate his defensive front and Flowers can make an impact against the run. --Mark Dulgerian

40-yard dash: 4.83 and 4.87 seconds
Vertical jump: 36 1/2 inches



High-motor power end. Uses stab move effectively and is continuing to grow as a pass rusher. Consistent with hand placement and is technically sound. Stacks and sheds in run game. Had a strong game against Texas A&M tackle Cedric Ogbuehi. Good student. Doesn't look like much athletically, but finds his way to the ball against the run.


Not a quick-twitch athlete. Below-average burst off the snap and and won't win around the corner very much in pass rush. Not yet advanced enough as a pass rusher to be able to consistently pressure the passer. Nothing special about ability to close on the ball. Limited scheme fit.

Adrian Clayborn

Bottom Line

While he might have room on his frame to add more bulk, he's not as long as most 3-4 teams would like at defensive end. His aggressiveness at the point of attack is a plus, but he might have to come off the field on third downs. Limited athletic traits might affect his draft stock.
