Bucky Brooks has us taking ZayFlowers, wide receiver

carpoon : 1/24/2023 7:24 pm
from BC. It looks like he was very productive, but we may not need more Smurf types. Thoughts?
I LOVE Zay Flowers  
bigblue12 : 1/24/2023 7:27 pm : link
Seems a bit high, but I’m a big fan. He’s somewhat like Wandale, but a little bigger and a lot more juice
Picking as low as the Giants are

any 1sr round guess is silly.
I don't pay any attention to

Flowers is the best WR in the draft IMHO. Reminds me of Antonio Brown on the field. Maybe Flowers and Wandale could work out like Tyreke Hill and Jaylen Waddle did for the Dolphins this year.
Based on nothing, I doubt he's the pick.

Too similar to Robinson in some ways. Also, I think they'll be looking for a cornerback.

For now, though, these mocks are just conversation starters. Everything's going to change after the combine anyway. And free agency. And it depends on who the Giants keep and who leaves.

I'd personally like to see them get a big, fast, surehanded receiver who makes contested catches. But who wouldn't like to see that?
Sign me up.

Can’t believe BC actually has an exciting WR prospect - OL is usually our specialty.
Sounds good to me  
Giantimistic : 1/24/2023 8:18 pm : link
We can pair that with size of Hodgins, Johnson and draft a TE and a bigger receiver later.
He’s a beast  
OBJ_AllDay : 1/24/2023 8:19 pm : link
Great but small. Think it’s time for this team to find it’s AJ brown
Any WR  
k2tampa : 1/24/2023 8:24 pm : link
Has to be a hands catcher, not a body catcher.
I just cringe when I see these highly touted

WRs playing at 180 lbs. It feels like the guys who can survive the physicality of the NFL and be reliable contributors are the exception, not the rule.

I just watched a Zay Flowers highlight reel. Yes, he is very very good and very very slender.
I'm weary of drafting twitchy WR's  
prdave73 : 1/24/2023 9:11 pm : link
After Odell & Toney experience, I'm not sure I would. To injury prone. I would take Jordan Addison. reminds me a bit of Devonta Smith.
Sorry.

*Wary
Wish he was bigger  
mattlawson : 1/24/2023 9:40 pm : link
But he has video game moves
I wouldn’t go by any mock  
Kevin(formerly Tiki4Six) : 1/24/2023 9:58 pm : link
Until after the combine.

Is the guy who is probably there at 25.
Zay Flowers  
Breeze_94 : 1/25/2023 12:38 am : link
is who I keep finding myself taking in draft simulators when the top 3 WR's and Brian Branch are all off the board.

He's not big, but the Antonio Brown PLAYER comp's are warranted. He has the juice to line up anywhere on the field and get open.

I realize he's not the prototype 'X', but the Giants need playmakers and he's exactly that. He'd be a shot in the arm for the passing attack and a big upgrade over Slayton, James and all of the other receivers on the roster.

The only downside is he'll be 23 as a rookie, usually guys that are drafted at 20-21 have more upside (and are better values on their second contract)

Jordan Addison is the one who missed games with a knee injury this year.

For all those that  
section125 : 1/25/2023 6:19 am : link
say he is too thin, think how badly we wanted Devonta Smith - who weighs 165...and Smith is 3 inches taller.

Give me a 4.37 40 guy, a guy that occupies the CB and a safety. If his hands are good, then why not?

This is the guy that make sense to me. He just looks like an NFL WR.
Flowers is a good one, not usually a fan of Brook's  
barens : 1/25/2023 9:44 am : link
mocks, but Flowers I would take at that spot any day of the week. It will be interesting to see his combine #'s.
No thanks  
jeff57 : 1/25/2023 9:56 am : link
Don't need another slot receiver.
Agree that #25 might be a little high for Flowers...  
Vin_Cuccs : 1/25/2023 10:29 am : link
....but the size isn't an issue for me because Daboll seems to value WR's with speed that can separate in this offense. The big-bodied, contested-catch style WR's (Golladay) seem to be something that just doesn't appeal to this staff and offensive philosophy.

Just look at last year's draft...they had a higher value on Robinson, who can separate, versus George Pickens and Alec Pierce who are more contested-catch types of players.

@BrettKollmann
Main takeaway from Shrine Bowl practice day two is that Zay Flowers moves differently than everyone else and I’m like 60% sure he’s going day one.
Zay isn’t a slot receiver  
bhill410 : 1/29/2023 6:02 pm : link
He would play outside. He is small but super explosive. I worry a little about the size but he was pretty durable except for an ankle I believe sophomore year. He also put up numbers with pretty mediocre offenses. He also has a really good head on his shoulder and comes from a strong family as well. Google the story of zay flowers being offered more money in a NIL and the decision process to stay at BC.
9 drops - no thanks  
stoneman : 1/29/2023 6:12 pm : link
I really don't like any receivers at 25 except for maybe Addison (maybe). I like CB/LB in the 1st now - possible Oline.
He’s a second rounder  
cjac : 1/29/2023 10:24 pm : link
I don’t think he’ll go that high
