Could the Giants be making a garden with their draft picks this season, selecting a second player with the last name Flowers? There is a chance of it, as the former Razorback as plenty of things working in his favor that the Giants look for in a prospect.

Right off the bat, Flowers is an extremely durable player. He missed only one game in his four seasons at Arkansas, and was a contributor right from the start. He has plenty of experience, as he started 39 of the 49 games he appeared in. He also produced while on the field, accumulating at least five sacks in three consecutive seasons. He also managed to break up 15 passes, a strong number for a defensive lineman, forced four fumbles and had one interception.

The Giants should also have no trouble working with Flowers, as he is a team-first guy that brings a lot to the table. He was a good student and is great to work with on the field. He also offers a ton of versatility on the field.

With Steve Spagnuolo back as defensive coordinator, versatility is something that is extremely important. He is not afraid to mix things up, famously using the NASCAR package that featured four pass rushers along the defensive line, not the prototypical two defensive ends and two tackles. Flowers would fit right in to that, as he has experience playing both ends and tackle in a 4-3 base defense.

He is a non-stop worker on the field, relentlessly getting after the quarterback from everywhere along the defensive line. He is not going to beat too many people with his athleticism, but makes good use of his long arms and big hands to make up for what he lacks in speed and quickness. He also plays well against the run, which would be a welcome addition to the Giants roster.

He could use some coaching on his hand usage to further progress as a run defender and pass rusher, and is a little shorter than you would like, but he is a player that would fit right in with the Giants. His versatility, durability and willingness to work are all attributes Coughlin loves to have in his players, making Flowers a welcomed addition if the Giants choose to make the selection.
