Tre Flowers confident as NFL Scouting Combine nears

Oklahoma State will be well represented among the offensive players this week at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Former Cowboys safety Tre Flowers is also trying to showcase his skill set to an NFL team with plenty to prove as a 6-foot-3 defensive back.

“Teams ask you what you bring to the table over another guy,” Flowers told The Oklahoman. “One thing I always say is, I’m not just a tall guy who’s stiff. I’ll put my numbers against the smaller DBs out there, my times and my change of direction against any of them, and I think I can compare, if not be better.”

Flowers, Oklahoma State’s 2017 leading tackler, has trained in Phoenix leading up to the Combine and Oklahoma State’s pro day, according to The Oklahoman’s Scott Wright.

The Converse, Texas, native isn’t as highly touted as quarterback Mason Rudolph or wide receiver James Washington. But he could be a solid option on Day 3 of the 2018 NFL Draft.

The NFL Scouting Combine begins Tuesday, Feb. 27, while defensive backs are scheduled to work out on Monday, March 5 — the last day of the Combine.

The 2018 NFL Draft is scheduled for April 26-28 in Arlington, Texas.
