Flowers has sowed the seeds to his success - The Providence JournalTuesday, January 10, 2017
December.However, a healthy and hearty Flowers improved and impressed from the start of offseason workouts in April to the end of the preseason in September. He not only made the 53-man roster, but earned a spot in the defensive end rotation that now includes accomplished veterans Chris Long (3 sacks), Rob Ninkovich (4) and Jabaal Sheard (4.5).Along the way, he’s done nothing but impress his teammates. And his coaches, as evidenced by the fact Flowers has started all six games and played 70.8 percent of the defensive snaps since the bye week after getting on the field 42.8 percent of the time in the first eight games.“Trey’s a really good football player,” Ninkovich said. “He works really hard at his technique, and he has a great attitude. His first year, last year, I remember saying to myself that this kid’s going to be a really good football player.“So I’m happy to have played with him and to see his progress and see him grow as a player. This is just the beginning for him. He’s got a long way to go.”Flowers, who is developing an all-around games as his 35 tackles, two fumble recoveries and pass defensed would attest, has been tagged “Technique” by his defensive mates. The nickname isn’t catchy, but it is fitting due to his attention to the fundamentals.That’s imperative because Flowers depends on using proper technique when it comes to foot and hand placement to gain a leverage advantage whether he’s inside or outside because he’s always at a significant disadvantage in the size department against guards, centers and tackles.“Obviously they know I’m a little bit quicker than them,” Flowers said. “So they want to grab me and make sure I can’t move. So to be able to have extension and not let them be able to put their hands on me is big.”Those big blockers have increasingly found it difficult to get their hands on Flowers, especially when the second-year defensive end slides inside to begin his first-rate pursuit of the passer. http://www.providencejournal.com/sports/20161224/flowers-has-sowed-seeds-to-his-success
