FAYETTEVILLE - Things can change a lot in six months.

Arkansas football spring practice begins Tuesday. Coach Bret Bielema has not announced what a depth chart entering spring would look like and it’s possible one does not even come out until the first spring scrimmage in a couple weeks.

Whenever it does, do not expect it to bear all that much in common with the one that will be released in August. Look at the one from this time last year, for example.

Eric Hawkins at wide receiver. Josh Allen at guard. Matt Dodson at safety. Nicholas Thomas-Smith at linebacker. Brandon Lewis and Anthony Brown at defensive end. Some of those players are still on the roster. Some will likely be on the depth chart whenever Bielema shows it this spring. Almost none of them made any sort of impact last fall.

That doesn’t stop any of us from guessing and having fun.

Here is an educated guess of what the depth chart may look like when it’s finally released this spring.

Note: This isn’t a projection of how it will look at the end of spring or next fall. There are players likely to be first- or second-string that are not even yet on campus. The first player listed is the projected starter. The second player listed is projected No. 2. For space constraints, no guesses go beyond the first two spots.
