Ereck Flowers

Offensive Tackle

Height: 6'6"

Weight: 324 lbs

Miami (Florida)

Strengths: Ereck Flowers seems to be very good at doing two things. One is stopping large men from assaulting the quarterback that plays on his team. The second is running up the field and making room for the running backs on his team to get their shine on.

Now, I don't know if you're into Redskins football or not, but if you are you may have noticed deficiencies in these areas. Perhaps that was just me.

Weaknesses: People like him too much. Sometimes he's too good of an employee. Other players are jealous of his blocking ability. I wish I could really spot weaknesses in his game, but all the film I watch (film being Youtube, on my laptop...with my pants off) shows him owning dudes.

Don't believe me? Maybe you should peep the videos by Draft Breakdown.

Bottom Line: The Redskins have been trying to get by with mid-late round talent on the offensive line for far too long. It's time to ante up and get some premium talent.
