Ereck Flowers- Offensive Tackle- Miami (FL)
Size: 6’6 324lbs

Strengths:

  • Athletic for size
  • “Mauler” in run game
  • Quicker feet for size
  • Versatile
  • Very competitive- has a mean streak

Analysis: Flowers is a big offensive lineman that played both tackle position at Miami (FL).  A physical run blocker, Flowers uses his long arm extension to reach defenders.  Once he gets his hands on a defender, they usually do not get away.  Flowers gives all out effort, and his competitive streak shows he takes the game seriously.

Need to improve:

  • Pass protection
  • Footwork- technique
  • Too “grabby”- bring hands inside
  • Balance

Analysis: Flowers has trouble in pass protection, especially when he gets beat off the snap, he does not have the technique to “catch up” to a pass rusher once beaten.  Flowers will have a tendency to block with his arms wide, allowing for holding penalties to be called.  He has been knocked off balance by bull rushers, but his technique should improve with coaching and experience at the next level.

Round prediction: 1-2
