ANALYSIS The Razorbacks should be improved at linebacker considering Brooks Ellis, Braylon Mitchell and Martrell Spaight have starting experience. Ellis started the final four games last season at middle linebacker. Spaight, known for his big hits, will be able to play more aggressively after a year of learning. Mitchell and Daunte Carr are solid. There is a good influx of talent with junior college transfer Josh Williams and freshmen Randy Ramsey, Khalia Hackett and Dwayne Eugene. TQ Coleman has moved from safety and should help against spread teams. Otha Peters, slowed by injuries last season, transferred to Louisiana-Lafayette after the first week of camp.
