Re: Brandon Flowers

Flowers ran 4.58 at the combine. Maybe he'll be available in the 2nd if the Skins go DE or WR in the 1st.

He'll likely fall to 3rd or lower.

Re: Brandon Flowers

This kid is a stud, hard hitting animal that has an amazing knack for the pall and pre play reads. I think he will become one of the better NFL CB just based on his heart and pure style of play. GREAT CB!

Re: Brandon Flowers

Brandon Flowers just ran a slow 40-yard dash(4.55). To slow for me. I am no longer interested.

Re: Brandon Flowers

I love the 40 yard dash. Thanks to this drill great players fall to the later rounds and overated guys constantly become reach picks. *cough* Matt Jones *cough*

However as I've said before I'm not to crazy about getting a corner. I think that we can be a better team with a rookie DT, LE, and G. Those are three positions (especially G) that can contribute right away, and eventually turn into great palyers.

Re: Brandon Flowers

Brandon Flowers
CB | (5'1", 192, 4.45) | VIRGINIA TECH

Scouts Grade: 91View by: Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.
Strengths: Plays with confidence, doesn't dwell on mistakes and is comfortable playing on an island. Opens hips smoothly when forced to turn, is fast enough to run with most receivers and does an excellent job of getting head turned around downfield. Plays with a mean streak, flashes a powerful punch and flashes the ability to slow receivers down at the line. Change directions well, shows good burst coming out of breaks and reads routes well. Shows good awareness and can cover a lot of ground when asked to drop into zone coverage. Has quick feet and explodes out of backpedal. Aggressive, has excellent ball skills and is a dangerous open field runner. Isn't very tall but times jumps well, elevates well and flashes the ability to compete for jump balls. Shows good instincts and fills hard when reads run. Takes sound pursuit angles, has sideline-to-sideline range and always seems to be around the ball at the end of the play. Times blitzes well and shows great closing speed coming off the edge. Stays alert and gets hands up when isn't going to get to the quarterback.

Weaknesses: Doesn't have great size and is going to get pushed around at times. Can be overaggressive, is vulnerable to double moves and lacks the second gear to recover when gets caught out of position. At times looks like a sound open field tackler but lunges at ball carriers' feet and fails to wrap up at other times. Fractured right fibula in 2004, injured ankle in Chick fil-A Bowl at the end of the 2006 season, hindered by ankle injury during 2007 spring practices and durability is a concern.

Overall: Flowers appeared in the first game of his true freshman season in 2004 and actually returned an interception for a touchdown but he fractured his right fibula in that game and the NCAA granted him a medical red-shirt. He appeared in all 12 games of the 2005 season finishing with 20 total tackles including 13 unassisted tackles and 1.5 tackles-for-loss. Flowers also intercepted a pass that year. He moved into the starting lineup in 2006 and finished with 51 total tackles including 29 unassisted tackles and 7.5 tackles-for-loss. Flowers also recorded 3.5 sacks and intercepted three passes that year. He started all 14 games of the 2007 season finishing with 86 total tackles including 56 unassisted tackles and eight tackles-for-loss. Flowers also intercepted five passes including one he returned for a touchdown and recovered a fumble last year. Flowers is a slightly undersized corner who has had some problems staying healthy so taking him in the first round would be a substantial risk. However, he has excellent man-to-man cover skills and he is a willing run defender so he projects as a second round pick.
