Ranking the Top 25 Seniors Heading into the 2017 College Football Season

12. Quinton Flowers, QB, South Florida:

Junior-year results: Quinton Flowers torched defenses on his way to AAC Offensive Player of the Year. He completed 62.5 percent of 331 passes for 2,812 yards and 24 touchdowns compared to seven interceptions. Flowers also scampered for 18 scores, and his 1,530 yards led FBS quarterbacks while ranking 12th nationally.

Senior-year outlook: Though the change from Willie Taggart to Sterlin Gilbert will affect Flowers, he's too talented to not impact both facets of the game. Plus, Shane Buechele threw for nearly 3,000 yards as a freshman at Texas. Gilbert must be more creative, but Flowers is a massive threat on designed runs.

NFL potential: You can practically hear the critics already. "He's too small." "He only played in the AAC." "He's more of a runner than a passer." Although the concerns have some degree of validity, they might not stop Flowers from being taken as a high-upside prospect on Day 3.

Still thinking he may go on to have the same type success at the next level as another college qb from Tampa ....

Flowers is no Brock Osweiler 6′ 7″, Pac-12, "Drop back Passer" with a 4.83 40

Flowers will get drafted.  Mark it down.  Looking at rounds 4-7, though.  Heck, he might be one of the best RUNNING BACKS in the draft next year, let alone quarterbacks, should he decide to go that route.

Lets see how this year plays out, but I am in agreement that he will get drafted (most likely) as a RB.

A lot depends on this season.  If he can polish his passing game, that can go a long way into when and for what position he gets drafted as.

I think Flowers can be a Julian Edleman type player at the next level.   We all know how dangerous he is in space so slot seems like a natural fit to me....

Flowers could make money in the CFL.  That huge field he would be unstoppable.
