After nearly 40 games, it’s clear Tre Flowers is not a starting-caliber cornerback

Even as a hard-nosed safety at Oklahoma State, Tre Flowers sure looked like Pete Carroll’s type of Seahawks cornerback. The height and length screamed Seattle and Flowers possessed the requisite athleticism to make the transition. And so, it came as no surprise when the Seahawks made Flowers their fifth-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft and labeled him a cornerback.

The early returns on Flowers were, if not outright great, promising. The former safety did enough during his first training camp, frequently visiting Shaquem and Shaquill Griffin’s room to practice the kick-step technique, to start immediately as a rookie.
