05/05/2015 - A closer look at the Patriots' 11 picks: Round 4/101 - Trey Flowers, DE, 6-2, 266, Arkansas...Flowers started for three-plus seasons for the Razorbacks, displaying the ability to stuff the run as well as get after the quarterback with some efficiency. He will push the returning talent at the bottom of the depth chart among Patriots defensive ends. - The Sports Xchange

05/05/2015 - Players are often asked to describe their playing styles when they are first drafted. That was the case with Arkansas defensive lineman Trey Flowers, one of New England's fourth-round picks. He was also asked about his high energy playing style and his answer was unexpected. "I actually grew up and fell in love with the game watching "(The) Waterboy" so I've got that visualizing the check mentality," Flowers said of the Adam Sandler football-based comedy. "He just taught me to go crazy out there so I just take myself to a place and just attack as you say." Flowers went on to explain that early in his playing career he actually modeled his on-field style after the waterboy-turned-star-defender from the movie. "I think I tried to emulate that in high school and middle school and it worked out," Flowers said of the Bobby Boucher character. "I actually did that in middle school one time. I hit somebody and did the little "Waterboy" shriek. I kind of have fun with it a lot." - The Sports Xchange

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

01/20/2015 - Arkansas DE Trey Flowers was only 6-2 (1/4"), but his wingspan was gigantic at 84 (1/4"), easily the best out of the defensive prospects on the roster. Although he isn't an elite speed rusher off the edge, Flowers' ability to cast a wide net with his length is a big reason he's so effective as a run defender. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

10/13/2014 - SEPT 22 SEC DEFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: Trey Flowers, DE, Arkansas...Flowers continued to live up to his reputation this weekend, disrupting the Northern Illinois' backfield all night. The senior defensive end recorded nine tackles, including one sack and two tackles for loss. Flowers also forced a fumble early in the first quarter that led to a 14-yard return for a touchdown by defensive tackle Darius Philon. He is currently the SEC's active leader in tackles for loss with 36 and second on the active sack list with 13. - SEC football

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

08/13/2014 - Arkansas' top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. DE Trey Flowers, Senior...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. 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. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/13/2014 - Arkansas' top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. DE Trey Flowers, Senior...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'd 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. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
