With the 146th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks have selected Tre Flowers, safety out of Oklahoma State.
Flowers is 6’3, 202 lbs, 33.8” arms.
He ran a 4.45 at the combine with a 10’2 broad jump and a 34.5” vertical, so the athleticism is all there.
Flowers is a long-armed, lanky safety with solid instincts, good straight line speed, but limited agility. Flowers’ length has helped with tackle and ball production, but his lack of adequate man cover skills could be an issue if offenses target him in space. His thin frame and inconsistencies as a tackler will concern some teams. Backup safety might be his ceiling.

”Some scouts are high on him because he’s in on a lot of plays but he’s close to being a reject for us because of his body type. He’s really linear and he is slow to open his hips and run. I don’t think he can be trusted as an NFL tackler either.” -- NFC team regional scout
