SCOUTING REPORT: Zay Flowers, WR (2023)

<< Back to Big Board

◊ versatility in usage

◊ staying active in plays and giving his QB an option down the field if the pocket breaks down

◊ easy movement & change of direction

◊ catching with hands away from body

◊ quick twitch & agility; dangerous in space

◊ experience playing outside & inside

◊ deep threat

◊ short but thicker build, especially compared to rest of draft class

◊ finding open space/soft spots in the defense and exposing it

◊ body control to adjust to off-target throws and make tough catches

◊ plays with high-motor & effort

◊ didn’t have a lot to work with around him and still produced

◊ effective release; winning inside leverage

◊ can work all three levels of the field


Ø on the shorter side at 5’9” BUT plays bigger than that

Ø not a lot of nuance in his route running (ie. sinking hips in breaks, selling stems, etc)

Ø limited route tree on film
