Brandon Flowers
 
I'm pretty sure most of you guys have heard of this guy. I'm a huge Va Tech fan and Brandon is a tremendous CB. I agree totally that a big WR is a huge need for our team, but if we had to draft a CB i like this guy a lot. He is a typical VT corner, very very physical, highly athletic with great closing speed. Ive never seen a CB tackle at the line of scrimmage like this guy can. He left college early unfortunately for us Tech fans, but it be awesome to see him in the a Skins uniform. They had a special on NFL network a few days ago on the top corners in the draft. I was happy when Brandon got some love when he was put at the top corner in the draft. This guy is worth the hype. What is all of your guys opinion on him?

I'm a Hokie too, love me some B. Flowers.

I'm hoping that he stays under the radar at the combine. Early projections have him at 2nd rnd. at best. If he were to be there or to drop to 3rd he would be a steal. He could contribute immediately as a nickel, then start next year.

Underclassmen can be somewhat of a gamble in that they may not be ready for all the challenges they face, but on the upside if you draft one in the 2nd w/that much potential, you're really getting a 1st round guy a year early. If he stayed at VT & remained healthy, he'd definitely be a 1st rounder next year, if not top 10-15 pick.

oh for sure and the Hokies wouldn't have to worry about throwing another freshman out next year to start. Dammit brandon haha he should have been smart like Macho and stay for his senior year.

Williams wouldv'e been all over a hard hitting CB like him.

Yeah I'm a Tech fan as well, and I'm very impressed by him. I'd love to see him in a Skins uniform if he fell to us in the second round, although I wouldn't be too upset if we used our first rounder on him if there weren't any players available that filled a position of need.

he's not bad, but i think cromartie or tracy porter would be better in the 1st or 2nd, respectively.

porter is FAST, could also be a great return guy....

I agree, however i think Brandon is up there with these guys. He really plays press covrage really, well but also can close when needed, and has amazing hands. But i definetly wouldn't mind cromartie or porter both very good

Mayock on nfl network had Flowers as his #7 overall prospect yesterday in combine coverage.

Yeah, someone else had him 11th overall, but I doubt he will be there in the 2nd. He may go in the first.

Re: Brandon Flowers
 
I'm a firm believer that these days the key to stoping the pass with secondary alone is decent corners and great saftey play, especially from the FS. Thats why I wouldn't mind taking Kenny Phillips in the first round though I would rather have a DL like Kentwan Blamber or a DE like Campbell taken in the first round. And according to my theory we have what it takes to stop the pass in terms of personel in the secondary.

Right now I'm hoping for a quick DT, LDE, and a Guard in the first three rounds.

Maycock has him number one cornerback out there.

yeah i'm surprised by that. I thought he might move up but not that much. It's just Mayock's list though, he's got some picks that are outside the box for sure. He has Mendenhall as the top rb.
