Cody Schrader

Drink says he’s been the most consistent in camp. I’ve had a sneaking suspicion this guy was going to ball out for us.

Last year he had 2074 yards rushing and 24 TDs.

He fought for every inch he could in the spring game.

I’m excited to see what unfolds there.

That’s exciting to hear. We could have some nice depth at RB with Peat and Tavorus Jones also coming in. Anyone have any idea what the depth chart will look like there?

With both Peat and Jones missing some time with injuries my guess is we will see a lot of Young and Schrader vs. La Tech. I don't get the feeling that Cox is a factor and Butts has been banged up too. I know I'm missing someone. Someone help me out please.

That’s pretty much it aside some incoming freshman. I think Schrader, pear, and young are it with Jones getting some work.

B.J. Harris. I knew I was forgetting someone. And I agree. I think Schrader is the thunder and Young/Peat/Jones are the lightning. I think Butts could find his way on the field if he gets healthy quick enough. In fact, whichever one of those 3 injured guys gets back on the field first will have an opportunity to establish himself in the rotation.

Having a solid running game will help a lot. If you are worried about your passing attack then you can pound the run and give your QB some play action passes to complete to build his confidence.

Last year Arkansas threw deep a lot... but what set it up was beating people to death with the running game. How does the O-line look up there?

we haven't had the horses for an overpowering run game for a while. With creative play calling, we have some players that can make things happen in space.

Maybe this year we'll actually have some guys on the OL who can line up and have their way.

Most consistent could mean "not injured" or "never needs a play off." Or it could be something really good.
Drink also needs his backs to perform blocks effectively, so he could be referring to that.

It doesn't necessarily mean he is a beast with the ball in his hands, though I'm hopeful.

OL may to the biggest question mark on the team.

Not sure why that matters

Better got some good OLs. If they are 3* OLs. It will be a long year next year if Drinkwitz can't get some 4* OLs. Many in the SEC are getting 5* OLs and 4* OLs or just 4* OLs. That is a must to compete in the SEC. 3* OLs will take time to get ready. Very few will be good enough to make an impact.

OLs, whether they're 5* talents, 4* less-talents, or 3* non-talents, take time to develops.

That might be true but those 4* and 5* OLs will be by far better and will get to start earlier than 3* OLs. That is why teams with 3* OLs don't fare as well as 4* and 5* OLs. That is why 4* and 5* talents do matters. Give Drinkwitz time to get those 5* and 4* OLs. Doesn't have to be 5 in one class but slowly getting 1 or 2 each year is good and the same thing for each position. Only way we can compete. No way Drinkwitz and staff should ignore getting 4* and 5* talents. Look at Kansas for an example. They are literally falling farther behind with the rest of the power of 5 for talents.

That's the kind of insight that has me checking this board every day.

They probably aren't even aware of that.

I think Drink is aware. I thought I heard him say in his last press conference that he and his staff are going to completely ignore recruiting players that have too much talents. He said it would make it too easy to win the division and that he wants the challenge of turning non-talents into talents. Maybe he'll read the board and change his mind.

I actually agree with that sentiment. Drink must realize the issues with getting those 4* and 5* talents and he's tired of coddling prima donnas.

Drink is going to dumpster dive on 2* talents that are lunch pail guys. That way they won't complain about NIL or transfer out.

OL is probably the spot where stars matter the least. Not that they don’t matter, but it’s a developmental position and kind of a crapshoot. You talent and good coaching.

I would agree that OL is the biggest question mark. It sucks that White is out. RT might be a problem.
