Trey Flowers In Round 3?

April 23rd, 2015


Former Tampa Bay tight end and current ESPN college football analyst Anthony Becht has been diving into game film and is all pumped up about an SEC pass rusher he thinks the Bucs could use immediately.

That would be Trey Flowers, the Arkansas senior defensive end.

Becht hopped on WDAE-AM 620 this morning and raved about the guy and how he could help the Bucs as a possible third-round pick.

“I watch his tape. The more I watch him, he’s a guy who could come in right now and just finish. He’s a finisher. Every single play is on the field,” Becht said.

A “great speed-to-power rush,” as Becht labeled Flowers, sure would be a bonus for the Bucs. Flowers, if as advertised, should at least be able to compete with the likes of T.J. Fatinikun, Larry English, George Johnson, Jacquies Smith and Lawrence Sidbury, the defensive ends Lovie glowed about this offseason.

Joe liked the this story, via, on Flowers getting screwed out of the All-SEC First Team honor this year.

Ironically,’s draft analysis likens Flowers to Adrian Clayborn, the guy the Falcons are hoping can revive their edge rush.

    cant wait till we play those p***y falcons hopefully Clayborn will be starting so we can run all over him

    I don’t understand all the fan hate towards Clayborn.

    Did his play live up to a 1st round pick? No, but it’s not his fault he was drafted that high. He was plagued with injuries, but when healthy that dude gave 100% on every damn play. His skillset was limited but his motor was always in high gear.

    I would have taken him over the Ghost all day any day last year!

    As for the draft, as long as we go after Shane Ray (unless he slides way down to the 3rd or 4th). Having this toe injury that may or may not need surgery already is of great concern. Can’t be going after guys who ALREADY have injury problems.

    sorry, that should say:

    *as long as we DON’T go after Ray…

    Clayborn will have 9-10 sacks this season playing for the Dirty Birds! Not cuz he is some outstanding NFL player, but because he will be in a system that is led by a capable (rookie) head coach!

    Lovie knows another 2-14 stinker and he gets terminated so he is doing anything to keep his job. Unfortunately, Team Glazer did not have the stones to pack his bags early and save this season!

    Instead, we have a HC who cannot count to 12 and it looks like a QB that would rather be convicted of shop lifting than tell the truth about FSU who covered up his other crimes. What a huge role model for all of the young football players wearing a Buc’s jersey. Oh, I forgot! Jose’ says he did not do it but yet he destroyed the video that proved it was consensual! Why was that??

    Lovie is trading the #1 pick for Philip Rivers in a hail mary play to save his job!

    what, No LUV for Lorenzo Mauldin?

  6. unbelievable Says:

    Back to the main point, isn’t Flowers strength against the run?

    Scouting reports says he is not that quick off the snap and at this point not very effective as a pass rusher.

    Clayborn will have 9-10 sacks playing for the dirty birds. OMG,I wanna see this… As for the Buccs,you know the team this site touches on everyday if they take Nate Orchard the defence will be solidified. Careless what anyone has to say 18.5 Sacks are 18.5 sacks.

  8. mike m Says:

    Hey Unbelievable, what are you talking about they are taking a QB in first round, and regardless of toe issue, he’s a top 15 pick

  9. INDYbucsfan Says:

    No no no, this guy is best against the run! He could absolutely be coached up to be a good pass rusher. But I think picking this guy in the 3rd for OUR D is too high.

  10. BuccaneEric Says:

    Bucboy, he wasn’t identified as the suspect untill almost a year after the encounter occurred. If my friend recorded me having sex I would have erased it that night. I wouldn’t think I would need it for anything either.

  11. unbelievable Says:

    Hey mike m, what I’m talking about is not taking that kid that high b/c of his injury. And I’m well aware he would never be OUR choice at #1, c’mpn man.

    @INDY, that’s what I was saying. Good against the run, but not the pass. At least not yet… So I don’t think you can take him that high unless we already had picked up 2 OL and our QB somehow through other trades.

  12. Brian D. Says:

    He’s my favorite DE prospect in the 3rd round range….like him better than anyone in the 2nd round range too…it’s close between him and Odighizuwa

  13. LargoBuc Says:

    The Glazers dont have the stones to fire Lovie? Yea right. They know that changing head coaches constantly is a stupid idea. Your franvhise will never have any type of stability with constant regime changes. You cant say a coach is trash after one season.

    LargoBuc Says: “You cant say a coach is trash after one season.” Hope you were talking to someone in particular because it sure wouldn’t be me. I can say trash after one season if the record backs it up. It does.

    Watched him play and The guy is solid. Facts are though the bucs have good coach but the coach can’t pick talent to save his life. Same with gruden
