Tre Flowers still fits the mold of a Pete Carroll corner, of course. He is tall with a great wingspan and has quickness. But to start last year he seemed to be struggling greatly with his confidence and was terrible at the beginning of the year. This may be due to the fact that he lost his starting job to start the year.
But around week 6 Flowers began to play better before an injury before week 12 effectively ended his season (Flowers played sparingly in the final two games of the year). His overall numbers from 2020 are all over the place. He allowed 77 percent of the passes thrown his way to be completed (this actually got better as the season wore on) but allowed just one touchdown pass.
Flowers defended just 2 passes the entire year but allowed a career-low 10.6 yards a reception and missed on just 7.8 percent of his tackles. Basically, while most passes towards Flowers were caught the receiver didn’t do a whole lot with the ball after they did catch it.
Flowers may not get the chance to start in 2021 either. Seattle has added Ahkello Witherspoon and Pierre Desir and still have D.J. Reed and drafted Tre Brown. That’s a crowded CB room. But Flowers has experience in the Seattle season and great size and could finally reach his potential this year.
