Despite coming off a season-ending broken leg injury on an interception midway through his first year starting as a sophomore with Tennessee football in 2019, Trevon Flowers seemed like he hadn’t missed a beat in 2020. The secondary did struggle, but it wasn’t because of Flowers, who was one of the highest graded, if not the highest graded player on the team by all analytics.
In terms of raw stats, Flowers came away with two tackles for a loss, three pass deflections, a forced fumble and 62 total tackles, 36 of which were solo. We mentioned his interception before in 2019. Simply put, he’s been able to do it all at the position.
Getting back to his baseball roots, the guy is a true center fielder, making him great to play free safety. Finally, that should be on full display this year, and his appearance on this list is immune to any scheme Tim Banks decides to run.
With the cornerbacks much healthier this year and another year of experience for Jaylen McCollough at the strong safety spot, the graduate of Tucker High School in Georgia’s DeKalb County should have more opportunities to make big plays. Last year, Flowers had to offset lots of other issues. He’ll be free to stand out on his own this year.
