Scouting Report: Strengths
- Accelerates rapidly and has a great feel for angles. Flowe isn’t huge, but Flowe packs a pop.
- He understands angles and takes very good paths moving downhill. He shows good ability in coverage, with the agility to mirror backs.
- Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #76. He wrote "The 6-2, 245-pound 20-year-old is super explosive. Flowe looked like a star in Oregon’s season opener last year against Fresno State, making 14 tackles and forcing a fumble to earn Pac-12 freshman of the week honors before injuring his foot. Flowe, though, has bounced back from the season-ending injury and hit 21.75 MPH. He also has deadlifted 605 pounds and power-cleaned 335."
- Combines very good instincts with above-average reaction skills. Almost always finds the ball in traffic.
- He plays bigger than his listed size, with the functional strength and motor to take on and hold ground against much bigger blockers.
- Good closing speed with long arms to drag down quarterbacks and running backs.
- A dynamic edge rusher, Carraway has NFL-caliber quickness and speed. Flowe gets off the snap quickly and has the flexibility to bend the edge and the pure speed to close on the quarterback.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Flowe is slow to locate the ball and too often overruns plays, easily fooled by counters and misdirections. He has limited experience in coverage, and his awareness when dropping into zone will likely be an issue.
- Doesn’t play with a physical edge. Flowe too often wants to run around the edge, and Flowe has trouble disengaging when an offensive lineman can get into his frame.
- As a pass rusher, he needs the scheme to create deception and confusion to give him a free run.
