2014 NFL Draft: Marquis Flowers drafted by Bengals

Rick Scuteri-US PRESSWIRE

The Bengals have taken Arizona linebacker Marquis Flowers, who appears to be in a similar prospect to that of Emmanuel Lamur when he came into the NFL.

With the 212th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals drafted Arizona outside linebacker Marquis Flowers.

Projected as a late-round-to-undrafted free agent, Flowers was a two-year starter at linebacker who reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in the 4.4 at his Pro Day and is described as a "Kam Chancellor-type linebacker turned safety."

This past season, Flowers registered 93 tackles and 11 tackles for loss to go with one sack, a pair of fumble recoveries and an interception returned for a touchdown.

He made a lot more noise in 2012 with 100 stops and 13 TFLs to go with 5.5 sacks. Flowers also forced three fumbles and recovered one, intercepted three passes (returned one for a TD) and broke up three passes.

Flowers appears to be in a similar position Emmanuel Lamur was in when he came into the NFL: An undersized backer who was a decent tackler but performed exceptionally in coverage.

He played exclusively at safety as a backup in 2011 before moving to LB full-time in '12, where he's played and started for the past two seasons.

The next Bengals selection will come in the seventh round at pick No. 239, and their final pick is at No. 252.
