The National Football Post's Greg Gabriel cites New Orleans, Denver, and Indianapolis as teams with late first-round picks who could be fits for Miami T Ereck Flowers.
"Despite his notable athletic gifts, Flowers is still graded only as a late-first or second round prospect, mostly due to his technique," Gabriel wrote. "After minimal contributions at right tackle his freshman year, he spent the remainder of his career on the left side, and although he mostly found success, he had issues with holding penalties (six in two seasons) and terrible performances (contributing to Virginia’s four QB sacks this season). As overwhelming as his physical presence is, it is sometimes neutralized by his poor footwork and slow start off of the snap, which can lead to poor balance." Flowers has been racking up the frequent flyer miles over the past month. He has or will visit the Panthers, Bucs, Jets, Browns, Rams and Colts, that we know of.
