Jets 2018 Roster Countdown: Number 38 Dimitri Flowers

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl-North Practice Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Dimitri Flowers is next up in our Jets roster countdown.

Name: Dimitri Flowers

Number: 38

Year with Jets: 1st

Projected Role: Starting fullback

His 2017: Flowers played a productive role in the high-powered offense of Big XII Champion Oklahoma. He caught 25 passes for 464 yards and 5 touchdowns to go with 4 rushing touchdowns on 14 carries. The Jets signed him as an undrafted free agent.

2018 will be a success if: Flowers beats out Lawrence Thomas to win the fullback job and produces for the Jets. Jeremy Bates is likely to use his backs in the receiving game so Flowers’ skill there could make him an asset.

Odds of making the roster: As I said with Thomas, this is a competition where the winner could play a role of some importance on the team and the loser will be cut. It is a one on one camp battle, which makes Flowers 50/50.
