Miami T Ereck Flowers' best "unofficial" forty at the NFL Combine was 5.29 seconds with a 10 yard split of 1.78.
Flowers is a big man at 6'6" and 329 lbs with 34 1/2" arms. He shows a lot of strength moving forward, but we think he still has issues with functional strength when pass protecting, likely stemming from too much movement equaling a poor base. Still, Flowers is being linked to first-round picks.
Flowers posted 37 reps on the bench press at the combine, the most of any offensive lineman.
We've noticed Flowers' lack of strength while pass protecting, but think that is due to technique issues stemming from a poor base. In the run game, Flowers has no such issues. The 6-foot-6, 329-pound Flowers has great athleticism (5.29 forty, 10-yard split of 1.78) and has the look of a first-round prospect. He certainly helped himself Friday.
