Zay Flowers has clearly worked hard to impress the scouts at the NFL combine later this week. He has completed weight training, during which he has gained 13 pounds of muscle in just three months.
The wide receiver, 22, looked ready for the week-long showcase, which begins Thursday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, home of the Colts, according to photos of his metamorphosis that were posted on social media on Monday.
Before NFL coaches, general managers, and scouts, Flowers will have to go through a number of physical and mental tests, including a 40-yard dash, a 20-yard shuttle run, and a 225-pound bench press.
Who is Zay Flowers?
Flowers finished his senior year at Chestnut Hill on a high note, recording 78 receptions for 1,077 yards and 12 touchdowns despite the Eagles placing last in the ACC. Flowers played his final football game for Boston College in November (2-6 overall).
According to NFL.com, he has been likened to free agent and former wide receiver Travis Benjamin of the Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Chargers, and San Francisco 49ers, who is anticipated to be a first-round pick in this year’s draft.
