Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Flowers looks the part of an NFL defensive end at 6-foot-4, 268 pounds. He possesses broad shoulders, long arms and good overall musculature. Flowers has only average initial quickness for the position but generates good speed off the corner because of his long gait. His best asset is the length and strength of his arms, which allow him to discard blockers at the point of attack and lasso ball-carriers attempting to run past him.

He attempts to poke the ball out while tackling and can generate some big hits when given room to build momentum, forcing the first three fumbles of his career last season.

Flowers is experienced rushing from both the left and right side, as well as from the two-point stance.

WEAKNESSES: His junior tape 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. Flowers can boost his stock with better burst off the edge and by using his long arms to more consistently affect the vision of quarterbacks.

Player Overview

Forming a dynamic duo with Chris Smith (a fifth round pick by Jacksonville), Flowers earned Second Team All-SEC honors in 2014, racking up 44 tackles, including 13.5 for loss and five sacks, as well as three forced fumbles and an interception. The production was nothing new for Flowers, who posted similar numbers a year earlier (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).

Flowers explored entering the 2014 NFL draft but elected to return for his senior campaign after reportedly earning a third round grade from the Advisory Committee. Proving that he can be as productive without an established speed rusher like Smith operating on the other side could boost Flowers' grade, as there is no denying that the preseason First Team All-SEC pick possesses intriguing tools.

10/13/2014 - The 14-13 loss to Alabama extended Arkansas' losing streak in conference play to 15 consecutive games. The Razorbacks haven't beaten an SEC team since posting a 49-7 victory over Kentucky on Oct. 13, 2012. They lost their last four conference games of that season and were 0-8 in SEC play in 2013, coach Bret Bielema's first year in Fayetteville. They started off this season with losses to Auburn and Texas A&M before the one-point heartbreaker to Alabama.

"We are very close," senior defensive end Trey Flowers said. "It's closer than y'all see. Like I said, the fourth quarter kind of bit us again this week. "We are going to keep on working and keep on doing what we are doing. We are headed in the right direction." - The Sports Xchange
