Flowers diminutive frame presents an obstacle to him winning on the outside against bigger cornerbacks. With 29-inch arms, his lack of length results in a limited catch radius. As explosive as he may be, Flowers needs to work on being patient and planning his routes rather than rushing into them, which he tends to do at times. As a route runner, Flowers needs to pay more attention to detail when stemming. Generally a reliable target with good ball skills, he has a tendency to drop the ball from time to time, which can be somewhat frustrating.
