Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Flowers looks the part of an NFL defensive lineman with broad shoulders, long arms and good overall musculature. Average initial quickness for the position but generates good speed off the corner because of his long gait. Length and strength of his arms -- used effectively to discard blockers and lasso ball-carriers on the move ?- are his best traits.

WEAKNESSES: Junior game film did not reveal ideal flexibility, explosive quick-twitch or the straight-line speed to be a featured stand-up rusher in the NFL, but scouts will appreciate his versatility and the effort he shows in pursuit. Could boost his stock in athletic testing if he shows better burst off the edge.

Player Overview

Voted second-team All-SEC in 2014, racking up 44 tackles, including 13.5 for loss and five sacks, plus three forced fumbles and an interception. The production was nothing new for Flowers, who posted similar numbers in 2013 (50 tackles, including 13 for loss and six sacks) and earned a spot on the SEC All-Freshman team as a true freshman in 2011 with 28 tackles, including 5.5 for loss and a sack while seeing action in all 13 games (three starts).

Explored entering the 2014 NFL Draft before he received a third-round grade from the Advisory Committee. With experience rushing from the left and right side and also from the two-point stance, Flowers could be a coveted versatile chess piece for almost any team's front seven.

03/05/2015 - Edge rushers the story at Arkansas, Mississippi State...While the hype revolves around the quarterbacks (like every year), the strongest position in the 2015 NFL Draft is pass rusher. Two of the best from the SEC showed off their size and athleticism during popular Pro Days on Wednesday. Representatives from 30 NFL teams at Arkansas watched Second Team All-SEC defensive end Trey Flowers shave approximately a tenth of a second off of the 4.93 time he ran in the 40-yard dash at the Combine. Flowers worked out as a defensive end and as a linebacker, as you can see in this video.

The 6-foot-2 266-pounder is a good athlete for his compact frame but showed some stiffness when flipping his hips in linebacker drills and shows only normal (rather than explosive) acceleration. He's a savvy, physical pass rusher who could play a Pernell McPhee-like role in a 3-4 scheme or operate as a traditional defensive end in a 4-3 alignment. Flowers is one of four Razorbacks invited to the Combine but the only one currently ranked among NFLDraftScout.com's top 100 prospects. Linebacker Martrell Spaight was timed in the mid 4.7s after his official time in Indianapolis was 4.88. Defensive lineman Darius Philon came in at 4.82 seconds. There were 16 players who participated in the workout, including former quarterback Tyler Wilson, who threw passes. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
