Zay Flowers Scouting Report
Per NFL Draft Buzz, Flowers has the following strengths and weaknesses:
- He’s extremely dangerous in the open field, showing the vision and creativity to run through entire defenses
- Has elite balance tight-roping the sideline and in-and-out of his breaks, showing excellent start-stop ability and burst
- 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
- Doesn’t have the size to consistently win on the outside, but can be productive working the middle of the field and as a return man
- Flowers doesn’t have the ability as a run blocker or the violent run-after-catch ability

Zay Flowers in Mock Drafts

Below is a list of mock drafts and where they have Flowers being taken.
- SB Nation – No. 20 overall: Seahawks
- Vikings Wire – No. 21 overall: Chargers
- The Huddle Report – No. 26 overall: Cowboys
Would Zay Flowers Fit on the Packers?
I said that it would take a team having a specific need to take Flowers and the Packers might have that specific need. Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs will most likely stay on the outside meaning the Packers need a catch and run, over the middle slot receiver. Flowers would be a perfect fit and might even sneak his way onto special teams in certain situations.

The question with Flowers is whether Gutekunst is willing to use a high-draft pick on him. The Packers haven’t drafted a first-round receiver in a long time and I don’t see this being the year they break the trend. If Flowers is still on the board in the mid-rounds he could be more attractive but I think Gutekunst looks to fill other needs before reaching for a wide receiver.
