All three of these JUCO prospects (Flowers, King and Marshall) got a lot of potential. Of those three, in my honest (and worthless) opinion, both Flowers and King might get significant playing time immediately. King might be also used at strong safety more than at Star position, since we already have Justin Garrett and Therezie there, and we lack depth at safety. Marshall probably is not better as a passer than what we have already got, though he might have better pocket awareness. So he is not guaranteed. In the videos of Brandon King, all we see is him either in run support or tackling a receiver after a catch is made, not of any interceptions or pass break-ups He looks a darn good tackler, but who know how good his coverage skills are (even though run support and tackling may just be a tad bit more important than coverage for a safety in EJ's defense, but I am sure they have to be good at fundamentals in coverage)
