3. TOP ARKANSAS PLAYERS

Best Arkansas Offensive Player

RB Rakeem Boyd, Jr. 
Okay, okay, okay … the best player is almost certainly going to be freshman WR Trey Knox sooner than later. It would be a plus if one of the transfer quarterbacks stepped up and became a star, and there are more young receivers who’ll push Knox and the incumbents for time, but once healthy, Boyd is going to be the back to work around.

The 6-0, 200-pounder is coming off of shoulder surgery, but when he’s right, he has home run hitting ability, and he can catch. He ran for a team-high 734 yards and two scores, averaging six yards per pop, and he did most of it in spurts with three 100-yard games in a four-week span. If he can handle 200 carries, he’s a 1,000-yard back.

2. QB Ben Hicks, Jr.
3. QB Nick Starkel, Jr.
4. WR Trey Knox, Fr.
5. RB Devwah Whaley, Sr.

Best Arkansas Defensive Player

LB De’Jon Harris, Sr. 
The all-star in the middle of the Arkansas defense led the team with 118 tackles with two sacks, nine tackles for loss, and five broken up passes coming off a 115-tackle sophomore season. The 6-0, 245-pounder has good-enough range and a burst to potentially get into the backfield more often. He’s not going to win too many races, but he’ll bring the pop when he gets there.

2. DE McTelvin Agim, Sr.

4. DT TJ Smith, Sr.
5. CB Jaques McClellion, Soph.
