Joshua Flowers: 2022 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Joshua Flowers
School: Winston Salem State University
What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
The goals I set for my last collegiate season was to just make sure I stand out in every play and give full effort on film. Felt like I had enough film throughout my college career and just wanted to do my job on the field and do everything I needed to do to help my team succeed.
Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?
The extra year of eligibility was great for me. It gave me the chance to clean up my technique and show how physical I am playing corner. Got the chance to focus in on learning how to be a pro and carry myself.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
They would say I’m a dog and a hard worker. I leave everything out on the field every time I step out on the field. My coaches believe in me and gave me the opportunity to play my game.
Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
I focus on the receiver’s tendencies off the line as well as the type of formations the offense likes to run. I study alignment and the quarterbacks reads through progression. It makes the game easier by noticing certain formations that I’ve seen on film with there select routes and based off the wide receivers alignment and tendencies through watching film it slows the game down.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I’m a bully and I’ll do whatever it takes to win. I’m a team player and can soak up knowledge quickly and put it out there on film. I just can provide teams with a player that will go all out on the field and do my job efficiently. I’m willing to do whatever a coach needs me to do effectively with my own fire. I love the game and I’m always trying to learn more.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I plan on training with Will Bradley Sports Performance to get bigger, stronger, and faster. I plan on staying ready so I don’t have to get ready. I’ll be ready for any opportunity thrown at me.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I’m a student of the game and I can provide a physical aspect as well playing cornerback or where ever a team see’s fit. I have great ball skills and can create turnovers. I’ve gotten better each and every year I’ve played and will give my all to continue getting better. Aside from my height and size , I play the game fast because I always prepare myself so the game is slower and I can go 100 miles per hour.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
You’re getting a diamond out the rough. Always been the underdog and have had to prove myself and no matter the accolades or the love I receive that feeling is forever. I will add to your team and be a great player, great teammate, and an even better man. Your getting a dog and I will kick down any door in front of me. I will give any team a better chance to win.
