FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - Arkansas defensive end Trey Flowers says he will return for his senior season.

The 6-foot-4, 243-pound Flowers, who led the Razorbacks with 13.5 tackles for losses last season, says he received a third-round grade from the NFL's draft advisory committee.

However, the Alabama native hopes to improve on that grade a year from now and Arkansas rebound from a 3-9 record in coach Bret Bielema's first season.

Flowers was a second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection last season, finishing with 44 tackles, five sacks and three forced fumbles. He's appeared in 36 games, making 26 starts in three seasons.
