Flowers registered 67 tackles, six pass breakups and three forced fumbles in the 2018 season.
Flowers played safety at Oklahoma State, but the Seahawks picked him in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft to convert him to cornerback. The 6-foot-3 rookie made the switch quicker than expected, and coach Pete Carroll expects him to progress even further this offseason. "The sky is the limit for him. He's got all of the attributes that you're looking for," Carroll said, according to Mike Vorel of the Seattle Times. "He's one of those guys that the day he steps back with us in April, he's going to be a whole new football player."
The eight tackles ties a season high for Flowers -- which he's now accomplished three times as he continues in his starting role at cornerback. The rookie fifth-round pick is showing great potential but he is still looking for his first interception and sack, which limits any potential IDP value.
Flowers (hamstring) is inactive for Monday's game against the Bears.
The 2018 fifth-round pick has been dealing with a hamstring issue that will keep him on the sidelines during his first NFL primetime experience. Flowers has impressively transitioned into the professional sphere, so it's likely that he'll resume his starting role once he's back to full health. In the meantime, Neiko Thorpe and Justin Coleman appear to be the next men up.
Flowers made his NFL debut in Seattle's season opener, logging eight tackles, but will not suit up Week 2 due to a hamstring injury. The rookie fifth-round pick will likely return to a starting role whenever he's able to return to the field.
Flowers will start at right cornerback against the Broncos on Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Since the Seahawks placed Dontae Johnson (hip) on injured reserve, Flowers will start in his first NFL action. The rookie fifth-round pick played safety in college, but the team drafted him with the intention to convert him to cornerback. Flowers has solid size (6-foot-3, 203 pounds) but he rarely took snaps against opponents' starters during the preseason, so it's tough to trust him as an IDP asset in Week 1.
