The San Diego Chargers will be bringing in Miami OT Ereck Flowers in for a visit and he could be the team’s first round selection.
The San Diego Chargers are still looking for another starter on the offensive line. They could look at free agency to fill that hole, but they likely will fill that spot through the NFL Draft. One of the players that could be selected in the first round to help build up that offensive line is Miami OT Ereck Flowers.
Miami OT Ereck Flowers will visit the Bucs & Panthers. More interest from Saints, Falcons, Colts, Chargers, & Browns. http://t.co/rGxt2LdqaQ

The San Diego Chargers are bringing in Flowers for a visit soon and there is a high possibility that the team will take him with their first selection. The team has been working to build a massive offensive line and Flowers would fit in perfect on the roster. Imagine the roster line with King Dunlap, D.J. Fluker, Orlando Franklin, Chris Watt and Ereck Flowers. That is some meat up front.
Flowers can play both tackle positions. With the Chargers, he likely would play at the right tackle spot and D.J. Fluker would be pushed inside to the right guard spot. That would give the team a massive front to create some running lanes for their running backs. The run game would set up the Philip Rivers and the passing game. We still would need to find out who would be running the ball, but whoever it is will get plenty of room to work with.
Flowers is quick to the second level and is massive, standing at 6-foot-6 and 329 pounds. He does have his issues with the speed rush like Fluker, but if he were brought onto the roster, we would immediately be looked at as a run first team. It seems like the direction that the Chargers are trending toward at the moment. The run game will control the clock and set up easy first downs for Philip Rivers and the rest of the offense.
What do you think of Flowers in the first?
