Reports: Miami Hurricanes OT Ereck Flowers Declares for the NFL Draft

One day after Duke Johnson announcing he is leaving, his former Miami Norland teammate follows suit.

Well that did not take long.

One day after UM lost their all team rushing and all purpose yards leader, they also lose a corner stone on the O Line as well, according to multiple sources.

Flowers has been a stud since he arrived on campus.

His performance Vs FSU this past season, just 2 weeks after surgery for a meniscus tear,  cemented his status as an all time warrior.

Most draft pundits are projecting the 6'6 324 pound LT as a mid to late first round draft pick.

Some of his best work from last season below:

Our takeThis makes complete sense considering his draft grade.  Unfortunately it also fuels the fire of speculation that many players are unhappy with the coaches/lack of success/you name it.  Flowers is not the grade of player you just replace. But UM does have some nice prospects in Taylor Gadbois, Kc McDermott, and Trevor Darling to absorb this blow, and still have an effective offense.

Good luck Ereck, and thanks for everything!
