Giants excited for Flowers the 'man-child'

Ereck Flowers has the stature and physical toughness to succeed in the NFL and New York Giants V.P. of Player Evaluation Marc Ross offered some high praise for the team's first round selection.

New York Giants owner John Mara highlighted the offensive line as a huge need upon the conclusion of the 2014 season, and on Thursday’s first round the Giants wasted no time addressing the issue. After suffering a minor surprise in commonly predicted Giants selection Brandon Scherff going to Washington in the top five, Jerry Reese still had his pick of the first round tackles. Taking Miami’s Ereck Flowers, there is little doubt of the intention: the Giants want to be one of the biggest and baddest lines in the league once again.

Marc Ross, the team’s VP of Player Evaluation, gushed on Flowers:

“Ereck is, as you have probably heard, a physical, nasty, tough football player and you just don’t see that too often anymore in college football. He is a man-child physically. He is gigantic. He has long arms. He just turned 21 on Saturday. Super productive against the highest level of competition there, the Florida States and the Nebraskas. He is a good player who is just scratching the surface of how good he can be.”

For a team that has struggled to push around opponents in the run game the past two seasons, Flowers is a smart pick. As a natural tackle, the selection allows Justin Pugh to slide inside to guard and make two positions better at once. For the first time in a few seasons, Giants fans should feel the offensive line is finally starting to come together again.

The draft, of course, values potential left tackles typically the highest. Will Beatty’s performances have been largely inconsistent since signing his big contract two years ago. Is it possible that Flowers could be groomed as a long-term left tackle, as well? Ross certainly sees that ability.

“He can play [either side],” said Ross of Flowers’ versatility. “He has done that. He played right tackle as a freshman. He played left tackle the last two years, so wherever the coaches want to play him and feel most comfortable right now, but I feel he can do either tackle spot.”

The question any time a team takes a player so highly is whether or not that player is ready to contribute immediately. This is what made Scherff such a popular mock selection for the Giants, but it is a bigger question with the 21 year-old Flowers.

“Yes, sure, because of the intangibles,” Ross said on Flowers playing immediately. “This guy is a clean player. He fits the mold of that crew last year because they say he is the hardest working guy on the team. They say he is a gym rat. They say he is the nastiest guy and you don’t want to mess with him because he is all about football and his love for the game. He is going to will himself to get on the field right way.”

The Giants came to rely on their first round pick last year, and a playoff push could potentially lie on this year’s first pick hitting the ground running in a similar fashion. There is little doubt though that the Miami product’s skillset matches up with what the Giants have lacked up front. Flowers may not be the sexiest pick, but he may be the perfect fit.
