Zay Flowers WR Boston College Draft Profile

Strengths
  • He gets off the line with a nice burst and is very fluid in his movements with little wasted steps in his routes.
  • Plays fast and confident. Covers a lot of ground in the short half of the field and is slippery after the catch.
  • Fits a zone system, can sift through oncoming traffic and explode through tiny creases and cutback lanes. Elite, darting stop-and-go acceleration. Dangerous in the open field.
  • Has elite speed and cutting ability and good hands and toughness. Lacks the ideal size, but has a similar body type to Antonio Brown.
  • Fluid athlete with explosive burst and speed to stretch the field and breeze past defenders. Has a quick first step and gets to top speed in a hurry.
  • Very good hands, accepts the ball fluidly on most throws and is ready to make a play afterward. Makes catches in traffic, even going up over taller defenders with vertical and toughness.
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
  • A savvy, natural pass-catcher with reliable hands and very good focus. Snatches the ball out of the air and shows the concentration to make acrobatic catches look easy.
Weaknesses
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • NFL defenders may be able to knock him off his route because of his slight frame.
