The Seattle Seahawks selected Flowers in the fifth round (146th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft. Flowers was the 13th safety and the 30th defensive back drafted in 2018. The Seahawks previously acquired the pick used to select Flowers as part of a trade that sent Marshawn Lynch to the Oakland Raiders.[4] The Seattle Seahawks immediately announced their decision to convert Flowers from safety to cornerback.[5]

On May 17, 2018, the Seattle Seahawks signed Flowers to a four-year, $2.75 million contract that includes a signing bonus of $298,729.[6]

Flowers entered training camp as a backup cornerback, but began competing for a job as the starting cornerback after he quickly transitioned to the position and impressed the coaching staff.[7][8] He competed for the starting cornerback job against veterans Byron Maxwell and Dontae Johnson.[9] Head coach Pete Carroll named Flowers a starting cornerback after injuries to both Maxwell and Johnson.[10] He was named a starter alongside Shaquill Griffin and safeties Bradley McDougald and Earl Thomas.

He made his professional regular season debut and first career start in the Seattle Seahawks' season opener at the Denver Broncos, and recorded eight combined tackles and a pass deflection in their 27-24 loss. Flowers primarily covered Pro Bowl wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders during the game and allowed 10 receptions on 11 targets for 135 yards and a 43-yard touchdown.[11] Flowers was inactive for the Seahawks' Week 2 loss at the Chicago Bears due to a hamstring injury.[12]

Personal life

Flowers is the cousin of former Jacksonville Jaguars fullback Dimitri Flowers, who is currently with the Dallas Renegades
