Arkansas wraps up its third spring practice under Bret Bielema this Saturday with the Red-White Game. Coming off an encouraging finish to last season, this has been an important spring for the Razorbacks as the team gets ready to make a run at the top of the SEC West. What should Bielema and his staff hope to see in Saturday’s scrimmage?

1. Play mistake-free up front

Bielema had some scratching their heads when he decided to reshuffle his excellent offensive line. The Razorbacks will feature new starters at four spots on the offensive line, even though they’re all returning players. They’ll all look a bit different, too, as Bielema had his offensive linemen either gain or lose weight this offseason. The Hogs will want to see some flawless execution up front as they get ready to head into summer, especially on the left side of the line, where Denver Kirkland takes over at LT next to LG Sebastian Tretola (who has lost 30 pounds this offseason).

2. See who stands out rushing the passer

Arkansas had one of the most underrated stars in the SEC last fall, defensive end Trey Flowers, whose motor helped power one of the nastiest defenses in the nation. With Flowers and defensive tackle Darius Philon gone, there are holes to be filled along the defensive line, more pressingly at end. Returning starter JaMichael Winston is a steady player, but not necessarily a playmaker. Could Deatrich Wise be the man to emerge? Bielema seems to think he has limitless potential, but Wise’s off-field activities have kept him with the backups. Jeremiah Ledbetter, a JUCO transfer, has spent time at DE too, and he could provide the oomph the Hogs need.

3. Identify a playmaker outside of Keon Hatcher

Arkansas knows who it can lean on in the backfield with Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams coming back, and it has Hatcher as a big-play threat at receiver and tight end Hunter Henry as a release valve in the middle. Finding another threat in the receiving game beyond those two would do wonders for the Arkansas offense. Tight end Jeremy Sprinkle has performed well in scrimmages and could be the guy new OC Dan Enos turns to. Wide receiver Kendrick Edwards, who returns to the team this summer after a brief dismissal, is another option.

4. Strike an offensive balance

Going along with the last point, Arkansas will look to become a more balanced team this season. The Razorbacks weren’t the most run-heavy team even in the SEC last year after running the ball on 60.9 percent of their snaps, but Bielema has said throughout the offseason that he hopes to see more balance this year. Enos runs a pro-style offense and is known for his work with quarterbacks, so he can perhaps turn any perceived limitations for quarterback Brandon Allen into things that work to make the Razorbacks a well-rounded offensive team.
