Coughlin: Flowers ’Strongest guy in Draft'

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is thrilled to have Ereck Flowers at his disposal to help address the team's ongoing issues on the offensive line.

It’s literally and figuratively the measuring stick for NFL draft hopefuls and can cause their stock to rise or plummet in the weeks leading up to draft day and this year’s Scouting Combine saw offensive tackle Ereck Flowers astonish scouts, coaches and general managers with his herculean strength and stature. No coach was more impressed than Giants head man Tom Coughlin, who compared the 21-year-old to a war-like machine.

“He is a battleship, an aircraft carrier or however you want to describe him at six-foot-six, 329 [pounds], noted Coughlin. “Strongest guy in the draft.”

Strongest, doesn’t always mean best, but in the case of the Giants draft board, Flowers was the top guy for Coughlin and company.

“Yeah, but you know how the Giants operate – the best player on the board is going to get the majority of the consideration, and that was the case right here,” noted Coughlin.

Despite being described as ‘a little bit on the quiet side’ Coughlin isn’t letting Flowers' soft-spoken manner fool him. The offensive tackle prospect can be a wrecking ball between the lines and this became immediately apparent when the Giants studied him on game tape.

"You see him on film," said Coughlin of Flowers' toughness on the gridiron. “You see him at the second level trying to finish people off. Arriving in a bad humor at a pile. You see all that stuff.”

Flowers is expected to compete for a starting spot with second-year tackle Justin Pugh likely moving to the guard spot. While New York will have to determine how it shuffles its offensive line, Coughlin thinks Flowers could be part of the team’s nucleus moving forward.

”He is an addition to the players that we have here,” said Coughlin. “We are excited about that. We do have some veteran players here as well. Hopefully the best will rise to the surface.”
