Henry was awarded the John Mackey Award, given to the best college tight end. This no doubt helped secure his position on the Chargers roster.
Jonathan Williams – Running Back – Buffalo Bills
Williams’ missed the 2015 season because of injury, but he earned 1190 yards and 12 touchdowns during a stellar junior campaign in 2014. Buffalo hopes Williams gets back to full strength and adds more depth to a loaded backfield.
Alex Collins – Running Back – Seattle Seahawks
The versatile Collins was projected to go in the third round but fell to Seattle on the last day. With Marshawn Lynch’s retirement, Collins has a chance to earn carries for a stout team.
Brandon Allen – Quarterback – Jacksonville Jaguars
In many ways, Collins was the second best quarterback to ever play for the Razorbacks. He left with the second best completion number at .583.
Sebastian Tretola – Offensive Guard – Tennessee Titans
Tretola was a standout for the Razorbacks. This very talented lineman committed only one penalty in 901 plays. He also led the team with 75 knockdowns.
Despite losing their recent game against Texas A&M, the Arkansas Razorback football team, and particularly their coach Bret Bielema, are trying to stay positive about the season. The past three losses have been learning experiences for the team, and throughout those losses the team has gotten closer to winning every time.
The Texas A&M game was frustrating for many, to the point where many Razorbacks left the field in tears – not necessarily because they were tired of losing, but because they lost despite playing their best game yet. In fact, the Arkansas Razorbacks were in the lead for the vast majority of the game, only falling behind during overtime after the Aggies managed to tie the game in the fourth quarter.
Coach Bielema spoke to the media about the game, stating that despite failures, he is optimistic that the Razorbacks can turn the season around and come back strong. “We corrected a lot of things that we took out of the Texas Tech game and turned them into positives,” he said.
As of right now, a whole lot of little steps are being taken by the Arkanas Razorback football team. The players are hopeful that at some point the small improvements will add up to a big win.
