Arkansas Football Countdown: 84 Days

Yes, we're kind of cheating with this picture, but it still fits.

There hasn't been a notable Razorback wearing #84 in recent years, and we found this picture of Tyler Wilson and Jarius Wright and thought it would be a good fit.

In 2011, Wilson-to-Wright was one of the most successful connections in SEC history, with Wright racking up 1,117 yards and 12 touchdowns throughout the year. The highlight of the season statistically was the Texas A&M game in the final Southwest Classic in the JerryDome. Wilson threw for 510 yards and three touchdowns with no picks, and 281 of those yards went to Wright, which was an Arkansas record at the time.

Wilson and Wright were named co-SEC Offensive Players of the Week for the effort.

Arkansas was touted in 2011 for having one of the best, if not the best, receiving corps in the nation, and Wright was Wilson's top target that year. Wright was the only one of the group to top 1,000 yards, and he nearly doubled the next highest output.

Wright was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in 2012 and worked his way into a contributing player as a rookie last fall, while Wilson was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the fourth round this year.
