08/12/2013 - TOP ARIZONA PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 2. OLB Marquis Flowers (6-2, 230, 4.52)...Flowers started nine and played in 11 games at safety for the Wildcats in 2011 but moved down to strongside linebacker as a junior and emerged as Arizona's most dangerous defender. He registered 100 tackles last year, including a team-high 13 for loss. Flowers also bloomed when it came to turnovers, leading the Wildcats with seven (three interceptions, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery), including a dominant performance against Southern Cal (seven tackles, three turnovers) that earned him Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors in a 39-35 victory.
Quick off the snap and possessing the long arms and lateral agility to avoid pass blockers, he led an otherwise woeful Wildcats pass rush (16 sacks in 13 games) with 5.5 sacks in 2012. Despite his production, Flowers does not possess the explosiveness or technique to consistently win off the edge against NFL competition. He is a classic run-and-chase outside linebacker prospect whose best assets are his speed and experience in coverage. With improved physicality at the point of attack in his second season at the position, however, Flowers could grow into a draftable commodity. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
