All college football teams have to deal with players leaving for the NFL draft, but it was particularly harmful to the Razorbacks. They lost playmakers, leaders and top defenders.
On offense, speedy wideouts Greg Childs and Jarius Wright were drafted, and Joe Adams, a leader on the team, was selected by the Carolina Panthers.
On defense, Jake Bequette is now a member of the New England Patriots, leaving the Hogs with a big hole on the defensive line. These moves were anticipated, but the Razorbacks also lost several players they expected to have in uniform this season.
Marquel Wade is suspended indefinitely after being arrested on a burglary charge. Wide receiver Kane Whitehurst was released from his scholarship after a brush with the law and Quinta Funderburk was released and has since transferred to Syracuse.
The huge turnover will be a tough adjustment for the Razorbacks.
