Arkansas Razorbacks Internet Chatter - NFL Draft Stock, Upsets, and a Baseball Sweep

The start of SEC play was not kind to Dave Van Horn's squad.

As it stands, Hunter Henry is the most likely choice to be the first Razorback off the board in the NFL Draft. Some mock drafts even have him going in the late first round. Alex Collins could likely be the second one taken, and after his pro day, he sounds pretty optimistic that that could happen. Collins only took part in a few drills during the pro day, but feels that he improved what he needed to, and was satisfied with what he did at the combine. Where he gets drafted is anyones guess though. Some sites have him going in the third round, others have him waiting until the fifth.

It is the heart of the football offseason before spring practice, so football content is largely looking back. ESPN has two fun lists about upsets in the SEC, and as you would expect, there are on the good and bad end of those lists. This one has the biggest upsets of the past decade in SEC football. Number 1 is the triple-OT win over LSU where Darren McFadden "brought dat wood." The 2012 loss that shall not be named comes in at number three.

The second article lists 6 possible upsets for the upcoming season and Edward Aschoff thinks that Alabama needs to be on upset alert when they come to Fayetteville. This is despite the fact Arkansas hasn't picked up a win over the Tide since 2006. Of course he also says the Hogs need to be weary of their season finale in Missouri as well.

So far this baseball season, the Razorback pitching staff has been inconsistent, but they have found ways to piece together wins. That all changed this past weekend in South Carolina. The Hogs were handed a SEC opening sweep that was capped off by an 8-6 loss. Sunday, Dave Van Horn relied on some big innings from Keaton McKinney and Zach Jackson but they couldn't hold on to they lead the offense gave them. As a result, the team has dropped five spots in the polls. They are now No. 18 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll.
