    Arkansas Razorbacks 2010 Preview

    http://www.easports.com/dynasty#module=moduleStoryView&story=22515633551280173830977&dynid=50576&sku=662A0001&sid=0&wknum=31


    The 2010 Arkansas Razorbacks believe they have a legit shot at making a run at the SEC title and when looking at their roster, you can understand why. New HC Juggs get a big ole Kool-Aid grin every time he looks at his roster, especially on offense. And it all begins with All-American and Heisman candidate QB, Ryan Mallet. Here is a preview of your Razorback

    QUARTERBACK
    6'7, 238 lbs, 96ovr, 97thp, 92tha, 89awr...and only a redshirt Junior. Gotta scratch your head why Ryan Mallet and the Arkansas Razorbacks weren't the first team selected in the recent Uprising draft. But Coach Juggs won't look a gift horse in the mouth. While traditionally a run-first coach, with Mallet under center, the playbook figures to open up and Arkansas will pass much more than Juggs is used to. If he stays healthy (crossing fingers), look for Mallet to make a run at 1st team All-American and the Heisman Trophy.

    RUNNING BACK
    A pair of sophomores will see the majority of the carries at tailback for the Razorbacks this year. Ronnie Wingo will get the nod as starter, but Knile Davis should also see plenty of carries. Both can be considered tweeners. Not enough speed to be considered fast, not enough power to be considered a bruiser, but good enough at both to hopefully be successful running both inside and to the edge. Van Stumon will start at FB....nothing special here

    RECEIVERS
    Ryan Mallet would go to waste if he didn't have weapons to throw to. Luckily for Coach Juggs, there are plenty at WR & TE. Greg Childs (92ovr), Joe Adams (92), Jarius Wright (89) & Cobi Hamilton (86) are the top 4 WRs on the depth chart and they form the perfect mix of speed and possession receivers. DJ Williams (92) and Ben Cleveland (84) are our 2 TE's, both big time receiving threats giving Mallet 6 very dangerous targets to distribute the ball to and pick apart opposing defenses depending on matchups. Childs, Adams and Williams all have a chance to make the All-SEC team if not better with Mallet throwing to them.

    OFFENSIVE LINE
    Ray Dominguez, Seth Oxner and DeMarcus Love are the bookend T's and C whose job is to keep Mallet upright. Our Guards are OK, but these 3 all look like studs and we are counting on them in the pass blocking game to give Mallet time. They are all better pass blockers than run blockers, so our run game might be suspect at times against better defensive front 7's

    DEFENSIVE LINE
    DE Jake Bequette anchors a pretty solid Dline. He is clearly the best player in our front 4 and one of the team's captains. Our DT's have girth if nothing else. Not the best attributes in the world, but both starters nearing 310 pounds so they should clog the middle if nothing else. One player Coach Juggs thinks could emerge as a future superstar is redshirt Soph Tenarious Wright at DE. At 6'1/240 with 80 spd and 84 acc, he has the perfect mix of size, strength and speed to be a successful DE. He just needs time and experience to put it all together.

    LINEBACKERS
    4 nearly identical players for 3 spots. That is the dilemma Coach Juggs is faced with at LB. So rather than picking 3, he plans on rotating them all and keeping them all fresh. Freddy Burton, Jerry Franklin, Jermaine Love & Jericho Nelson are all between 84-80 ovr, all with similar size, speed, strength, tackle ability and play recognition. It's as if the 4 guys were cloned as freshman and varied slightly in their development.

    DEFENSIVE BACKS
    And finally we reach the weakest part of the Arkansas team. Truthfully, Coach Juggs is really worried about how his DBs are going to hold up and is toying with playing alot more zone than he usually does this year to limit the mistakes. CB's Ramon Broadway and Rudell Crim both have decent overalls, but have holes in their games that we won't discuss here. Coach Juggs still hasn't named a Nickle or Dime back yet as in the practice games all the rest of his CBs have sucked. FS Anthony Leon has a linebacker's body (6'4/227lbs) at safety, but often times also plays man defense like a LB...not good. SS Tramain Thomas is probable the best of what we have in the secondary...and that's not saying much since he probably wouldn't start on 2/3 of the rest of the teams in the SEC. Ideally we'll be able to limit the damage and our front 7 will cause mistakes with pressure and stopping the run. But if we have to get in a shootout due to our secondary, we will with the horses we have on offense.

    SPECIAL TEAMS
    K Alex Tejada & P Dylan Breeding are both solid performers who we would trust with making a big kick or punt with the game on the line. WR Joe Adams figures to be the main return man and he should be among the league leaders in the SEC in both KR and PR stats.

    Luckily for the Razorbacks, they avoid Florida and Tennessee in the tough SEC this year. They still have to travel to Georgia and Auburn, but their toughest games on paper (Alabama & LSU) are both at home. Ole Miss and South Carolina also figure to be tooth and nail games, so their schedule stacks up pretty tough. 9-3/10-2 are both doable Coach Juggs thinks though, and that should be good enough to earn them a berth to the SEC title game.

    thanks...on offense we are. on defense not so much. we might be a shootout type of team this year unless the defense performs over their ratings.

    You're welcome juggs for skipping on Arkansas.
    I seriously thought about them because of the offense, but ultimately couldn't go head to head in the west with my Tigers!

    Also, nice write up. Looks like I'll be going shotgun a lot against that secondary.

    Great Team and talent but Terrible Offensive and Defensive Coordinators. These guys might break some school records but no Titles in Arkansas for a while.
