Arkansas edge player Trey Flowers "ranks among the most underrated prospects in the entire 2015 draft," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
"Flowers lacks ideal height but his disproportionately long arms (34¼ inches), strength and toughness make him one of this year's better overall defensive ends -- and considering the talent among edge rushers in 2015, that's quite the accomplishment," Rang wrote. The three-year starter and two-time second-team All-SEC defender ran a mid-4.8s 40-yard dash at his pro day workout. NFLDraftScout.com ranks Flowers as the No. 89 overall player and colleague Dane Brugler projects him as a third-rounder. Apr 20 - 8:59 PM

Arkansas edge player Trey Flowers "projects best as a 4-3 defensive end who is at his best taking on blocks and setting the edge as a stout run defender, projecting as a top-100 pick," notes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

NFLDraftScout.com ranks Flowers as the No. 89 overall player and Brugler projects him as a third-rounder; both proclamations sound about right. "Although he doesn't have the gaudy production of other defensive end prospects, Flowers has NFL size/strength dimensions and was consistently effective since arriving at Arkansas, doing his best work against the run," Brugler wrote. "He doesn't cheat himself and uses every asset in his bag of tricks to make plays, showing the mentality for the trenches to do the dirty work." Flowers ran a mid-4.8s 40-yard dash at his pro day workout. "Flowers is a tight mover and lacks dynamic athleticism, but effectively uses his power and plays passionate and tough with the high energy level to always go full speed," Brugler wrote.

Arkansas edge player Trey Flowers "is a powerful, explosive, consistent player who should win more than his share of battles in the NFL regardless of where he lines up along the defensive front," noted NFLDraftScout.com's Frank Cooney.

"I want them to talk about my run defense," Flowers said at the combine. "Just being in the league I was in, the SEC - it's a run league. So if you're stopping the run in one of the top running leagues in the nation, then you must be a pretty good player." Indeed, Flowers' stoutness in the run game is a major factor in his evaluation. "Although even he admits his strength is stopping the run -- evidenced by 17 career tackles for a loss (second in school history) -- Flowers still led the team with five sacks among his 63 tackles last season," Cooney wrote. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote earlier this month that Flowers could "play a Pernell McPhee-like role in a 3-4 scheme or operate as a traditional defensive end in a 4-3 alignment."

Arkansas edge player Trey Flowers ran a mid-4.8s 40-yard dash at his pro day workout.

That's roughly a tenth of a second better than the 4.93 time he posted at the Combine. On Thursday, Flowers worked out as both a defensive end and linebacker. "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," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang. "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 was a disruptive college end who showed well against future NFL prospects, including Texas A&M's Germain Ifedi.

Arkansas edge player Trey Flowers is "a pure power rusher," according to NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah.

Flowers is "not very loose but plays with leverage and power at point of attack," per Jeremiah. The question is if Flowers the necessary traits to convert speed to power. Few edge players win with just power, as they have to threat with upfield quickness in order to force their opposition to respect edge moves. Flowers is likely more limited than other rushers in this class.

ESPN's Todd McShay writes that Arkansas DE Trey Flowers has "good quickness and power" with "long arms and violent hands."

"He's always around the ball, and although he isn't an elite pass-rusher, he's stout versus the run and has the versatility to be an every-down D-lineman in the NFL," McShay wrote. "He has a second-round grade." Flowers accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl last month. The 6-foot-4, 262-pounder's rush game is predicated on power, not agility. He's a disruptive college end who has showed well against future NFL prospects, including Texas A&M's Germain Ifedi.

Arkansas DE Trey Flowers is "bigger than [Missouri DEs Shane Ray and Markus Golden) and stouter against the run," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Flowers accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl last week. The 6-foot-4, 262-pounder had a nice game which would have been even better if two big plays hadn't been called back, costing him a sack/fumble and a touchdown off a blocked field goal. "[Flowers] doesn't possess Ray's explosive burst off the edge - which could keep Flowers out of the first round - but he is quick enough to cross the face of tackles and uses his hands well to bat away blockers' attempts to latch on," Rang wrote. "Flowers' long arms, strength and good agility (including an effective spin move) helped him record eight tackles, including a sack and two passes broken up against the Missouri."

Arkansas DE Trey Flowers has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

"Arkansas DE Trey Flowers played like a man possessed vs Bama. Highly disruptive and made a ton of plays," Weidl tweeted. The 6-foot-4, 262-pounder had a huge outing in the Razorbacks’ loss to Alabama, recording eight tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack.

Arkansas senior DE Trey Flowers "entered the season as a borderline top-five senior prospect at the position and has only helped himself thus far in 2014," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Flowers stays low and balanced out of his stance, using his arc speed to win the edge or his natural momentum to attack blockers and drive him into the pocket. He entered the season as a borderline top-five senior prospect at the position and has only helped himself thus far in 2014," Brugler wrote. While it wasn't an impressive day for the 6-foot-4, 262-pounder(4 tackles, zero sacks), he did provide consistent pressure on the Aggies' backfield. Brugler notes that "it was a positive performance, making it uncomfortable for Kenny Hill and the Texas A&M offensive gameplan."

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks notes that "evaluators are still waiting on" Arkansas senior DE Trey Flowers "to take over the game from his defensive end spot."

"Flowers intrigues NFL scouts with his prototypical size and length, but evaluators are still waiting on the 6-foot-4, 268-pound edge rusher to take over the game from his defensive end spot," Brook wrote. While Flowers "has shown disruptive potential at times," Brooks notes that "he has never put together a solid effort against a blue-chip talent to convince scouts that he can be a difference-maker at the next level." The 6-foot-4, 262-pounder earned Second Team All-SEC honors in 2013, racking up 44 tackles, including 13.5 for loss and five sacks, as well as three forced fumbles and an interception. Flowers will have to put on a strong performance versus Texas A & M's T Cedric Ogbuehi, to prove that his game can translate to the next level.

Arkansas senior Trey Flowers saw his draft stock slide over the weekend against Auburn, notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Flowers did finish the night with 9 tackles during the Razorbacks 24-point loss to Auburn but much of that was after the fact and he had minimal impact," Pauline wrote. "Considering Auburn was starting a new left tackle as well as a back-up quarterback, Flowers should’ve been omnipresent in the opponents backfield." The 6-foot-4, 262-pounder earned Second Team All-SEC honors in 2013, racking up 44 tackles, including 13.5 for loss and five sacks, as well as three forced fumbles and an interception. Pauline disseminated Flowers a Rds. 3-4 grade over the summer.

Arkansas senior Trey Flowers will solicit a wide variety of opinions from scouts, notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot-4, 262-pounder earned Second Team All-SEC honors in 2013, racking up 44 tackles, including 13.5 for loss and five sacks, as well as three forced fumbles and an interception. "The senior defensive end receives a variety of grades from scouts and has been stamped anywhere from a third round prospect to a late seventh round player," Pauline wrote. "Flowers comes with average size speed numbers but is a solid pass rusher who looks athletic on the field. I struggle to see him line up as anything other than a 4-3 defensive end in the NFL yet I like his propensity to force the action behind the line of scrimmage." Pauline himself allots Flowers with a Rds. 3-4 grade.
