Trey Flowers is coming off the best season of his young career. He finished the regular season with an overall grade of 90.4, tying for third among edge defenders. The fourth-year pro out of Arkansas is only 25 years old and is a huge reason why the New England Patriots ended the regular season with the league's second-best team defense grade (90.2). 

Pro Football Focus will be running through 50-plus pending/soon-to-be free agents between January 7, 2019 and March 8, 2019 to offer a detailed analysis of the top players bound for new contracts and (possibly) new teams in 2019. We want to house all of the important grades, advanced stats and key analysis for each player, so you know exactly what your team is getting in free agency.

Trey Flowers’ run defense was the biggest reason for his excellent 2018 campaign. His run-defense grade of 88.5 ranked third among edge defenders, and his run-stop percentage of 10.5% ranked sixth. Flowers was also solid as a pass rusher, finishing the regular season with the 13th-best pass-rushing grade (80.1) among edge defenders. Flowers is a young, do-it-all edge defender and could be a finishing piece to a building defense. The Patriots would be wise to re-sign him.
