Arkansas Depth Chart for Razorbacks Game vs Louisiana Lafayette

It's part of their first official game notes in preparation for the first game. You can see the full game notes pdf here.

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

Some quick notes of interest on the depth chart:

  • AJ Derby is officially the backup QB
  • Interesting that Eric Hawkins is listed as the backup WR and not Drew Morgan or Melvinson Hartfield. We've heard much more from the coaches throughout camp on the latter and not the former.
  • Will Hines apparently beat out Jared Collins for the starting cornerback slot
  • Number of true freshmen on this list: only 6 by my count. Of course, this doesn't mean we won't see more, but these six are definitely being counted on to contribute significantly this year.
