Tonight the NFL Draft gets underway. No Razorbacks are expected to go in the first round but there are a handful of seniors that should be taken in the later rounds. Here is a good list of where different mock drafts have Razorbacks going, along with a good look back at past Razorbacks being taken in the NFL draft. If the three of Jeremy Sprinkle, Dan Skipper, and Deatrich Wise all get taken it will give Arkansas 13 picks over the last three years with the potential for more.

One of those hoping to get in the draft is Cody Hollister. Both he and his brother, who played at Wyoming, will be watching the draft hoping to see their names on the board. The two have remained very close throughout college and even have been working out together preparing for the possibility of a professional career.

A few basketball updates, first one that will make fans very happy. Season ticket prices for the upper levels will be going down, which means individual tickets are also likely to be reduced.

In a recent press conference, Memphis Head Coach Tubby Smith said they were in discussions with Arkansas and a couple other SEC schools about a non conference series. Arkansas has a lot of history of getting players from the Memphis area so it would be a fun matchup.

The Hogs also have a potential transfer on the hill for a visit. Jalen Harris announced his intention to leave New Mexico and Arkansas is his first official visit. Harris played one season at New Mexico, and started 19 games. He would have three years of eligibility.

Arkansas baseball is back at Baum Stadium this weekend. The series was originally scheduled for Thursday-Saturday, but the finale has moved up to a doubleheader on Friday to accommodate for some potential weather coming to Fayetteville.
