Brian Flores is different. It’s not just that he’s one of the rare coaches whose Google search will yield a height and weight (Flores played linebacker at Boston College). It’s not only that he started as a scout in the New England Patriots organization after an injury cost him a chance at the NFL Oren Burks Jersey , or that he’s not actually technically even New England’s defensive coordinator. No, the amalgamation of all of these things along with his background as a Honduran immigrant growing up in Brooklyn, one of an infinitesimal portion of Hispanic players and coaches in the league, that makes Flores so unique. Last offseason, the Cardinals interviewed Flores twice for their head coaching job, despite the fact Flores wasn’t calling defensive plays or in charge of the Patriots defense. That was Matt Patricia. To see a 37-year-old linebackers coach getting those kinds of opportunities in the NFL speaks to the quality of coaching talent those around the league believe Flores possesses despite not being well-known to the casual fan. With Patricia in Detroit, Flores oversaw a vast improvement in the New England defense, boosting blitz usage and relying heavily on man coverage to force teams to drive the ball against them consistently. In just one season J’Mon Moore Jersey , the Patriots defense went from 31st in defensive DVOA under Patricia to 16th without any significant personnel changes. There’s also a Packers-specific reason Flores is an outlier: he’s a defensive coach. Of the candidates Green Bay has either already interviewed or intends to interview, nearly all of them are offensive-minded. Chuck Pagano and Pat Fitzgerald are the others on the list, though Pagano should be considered a longshot and Fitzgerald says he’s staying at Northwestern (disclaimer: coaches have said this before and left).Flores doesn’t appear to be the preferred candidate from the Patriots organization, as that is Josh McDaniels. Theoretically, McDaniels could bring Flores with him and offer him a promotion to DC, though New England wouldn’t have to allow that and could simply give Flores the title he already de facto owns.Even still, Flores’ name on the Packers’ list is instructive given who isn’t on the list. No Steve Wilks, Vic Fangio Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey , Kris Richard or other top NFL defensive minds. Even if this is simply a “just to make sure” interview, Mark Murphy and Brian Gutekunst have plenty of quality defensive coaches who could receive the same courtesy. They didn’t extend such a courtesy to those other names.In other words, if they’re going to give themselves the opportunity to be won over by a sharp defensive mind this January, it’s Flores who will get that opportunity, instead of defensive coaches deemed worthy by other organizations. And while the 37-year-old may not be the top choice for the Packers, the diverse and unique background offers a blueprint for his appeal. Head coaches have to understand personnel. Flores was a scout. Head coaches have to be able to lend a hand on more than just their side of the ball. Flores was a special teams assistant — an area where Green Bay has been dreadful. He even helped with the Patriots offense and special teams in 2010, a practice that isn’t uncommon in New England where McDaniels got his start as a defensive assistant. Flores may not be a name you know, but his is a name you should know. He’s going to be a head coach sooner rather than later in this league. It probably won’t be with the Packers JK Scott Jersey , but it would be hard to blame Murphy and Gutekunst if Flores blew them away in the interview on Friday and got into the fray. Both players are impressive athletes who could help out a team’s front seven."The Green Bay Packers continue to add to their list of pre-draft visits for the 2019 NFL Draft’s scouting process. Today’s pair of prospects taking visits to Lambeau Field both suit up on the defensive front seven.The first new player visiting is defensive tackle Trysten Hill, who played his college ball at Central Florida. Hill attended the 2019 Combine in Indianapolis, where he posted an impressive workout for a 6-foot-3, 308-pound tackle; he ran the 40-yard dash in 5.04 seconds and posted a blistering (for his size) 4.38-second time in the short shuttle to go with a solid 7.70-second time in the 3-cone drill. However, his explosion numbers were exceptional, as he recorded a 35-inch vertical and 9-foot-7 broad jump, both top-five numbers for interior defensive linemen.Hill also flashed some pass-rush ability in his junior season last fall before declaring for the 2019 Draft. He recorded 10.5 tackles for loss and three sacks, both career-highs. Currently Kevin King Jersey , NFL Draft Scout projects Hill as a third- or fourth-round pick. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo first reported news that Hill has already had a private workout with the Packers.The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein later reported on the second recent visitor, who was in the building on Tuesday. That player is Kaden Elliss, a linebacker from Idaho and the son of former NFL defensive lineman and Pro Bowler Luther Elliss. The younger Elliss is listed at 6-foot-2 and 238 pounds, and reportedly could be under consideration as an edge rusher in Green Bay.Idaho used Elliss on both sides of the football in his career, however. lining him up at tight end on offense as well as at linebacker. He only caught ten passes as a receiver, but did have seven receptions for 156 yards and two touchdowns in 2017. As a defender, however, he was one of the Vandals’ better players Josh Jones Jersey , racking up 13 sacks over the past two years. He also picked off a whopping five passes as a sophomore, which perhaps led to the team’s desire to work him in on offense the following season.According to Silverstein, Elliss ran a 4.62-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day last week. He is likely a late-round draft pick or a potential undrafted free agent.
