Prospect Profile: Nichiren Flowers

.

Full Name: Nichiren Flowers School: Nevada Pos: WR

Ht: 6-2 Wt: 204 40: 4.60 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter previously awarded All-Conference honors. Senior totals included 67/889/7 after best numbers of 91/1,126/6 as a junior. Suspended the first half of the team's initial contest because of poor practice habits. Dropped 20-pounds with illness last season.

Pos: Fluid, natural receiver with a polished game. Quick releasing off the line, comes back to the ball and effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents. Has soft hands, good body adjustment and always plays with balance. Sells routes and lays out for the difficult reception.

Neg: Not known as a hard worker. Average blocker down the field. Not a deep threat who stretches the defense. Slows into breaks and does not show good quickness.

Analysis: A productive collegiate pass-catcher, Flowers has abilities as a fourth receiver in the NFL yet must mature and make football a priority first.
