NFL Network—> Flowers was compared to T Lockett Sea WR in physical attributes & numbers. That could be a good comp pending where he landsTyreke Hill was 5'8 and 1/8th at the combine5’9”
Love the kid & he can play, but he’s tiny
Waddle was 5'9 and 1/2 (4/8s)
Flowers came in today at 5/9 and 1/8.
I'm not telling anyone he's the next Tyreke Hill. But there's precedent for these sub-5'10 guys succeeding for the NFL and Fantasy. Would I feel better if he was 5'10 or 5'11? Sure. But the biggest knock on him being his height--and he's measuring between the two studs from Miami in that regard.
We've seen a shift in the NFL the last IDK how many years. Smaller guys are succeeding. I remember back in the day, I wanted all of the 6'3 220 guys. Now we're seeing all these 5'10-6 foot guys dominate. And many of the "5'10" guys aren't the full 5'10.
Edit to add: If you check ESPN/Rotoworld--they list Hill and Waddle at like 5'10. If you google their combine height, 5'8 and change for Hill, 5'9 and change for Waddle.
I was hoping early 2nd pick but could be gone by then
