Arkansas Razorbacks Football Spring Practice Preview: The Secondary

The Arkansas Razorbacks are widely viewed as a top 25 team for 2010.

Arkansas is viewed had one of the most exciting offenses in the nation, led by Heisman hopeful Ryan Mallett.

However, the Razorbacks’ defense is believed to be holding the Hogs back, and maybe the difference between a breakout 2010 or another OK season like 2009.

If there’s one group that has plenty to prove next season, it’s the secondary.

Last year, Arkansas led the conference with 37.3 points per game (first in the SEC).

The offense had the ability to put up a lot points in a hurry. However, the defense could give up a lot of points, just as quickly.

The defense allowed the most plays in the SEC of 60 yards or more on scoring plays.

A huge point of emphasis this spring has to be shoring up a porous secondary. Highly touted recruits Darius Winston and David Gordon will be returning, along with one of the best secondary classes in Arkansas' recruiting history.

Arkansas’ 2009 recruiting class featured the two freshmen studs, but also relied heavily on JUCO transfers from The College of the Sequoias, Anthony Leon and Andru Stewart, along with Butler County Community College transfer Rudell Crim.

Here’s what the the depth chart looks like as we head into spring practice, along with battles to watch for during the spring football season.

Each secondary member will appear in the order they appeared on the latest depth chart.
