The Lions took DE Jeremiah Ledbetter out of Arkansas with the No. 205 pick in the sixth round. The Lions needed to add an edge rusher who can move inside for passing downs and that's what he can bring. Pro Football Focus' player comp is Adrian Clayborn.

Redskins fifth-round pick Jeremy Sprinkle was suspended for the bowl game after being caught shoplifting. He said, "It was a big disappointment for everyone around me, something out of my character. I learned you have to be the same person whether you think someone watching or not."

The Redskins selected Arkansas tight end Jeremy Sprinkle with the 154th overall pick. Sprinkle caught 33 passes for 380 yards and six touchdowns last season, but was suspended for the bowl game after being caught shoplifting. He's 6-foot-5 and 252 pounds and was considered a better receiver than blocker.

DE Deatrich Wise said that he views fellow Arkansas alum and Patriots DE Trey Flowers as a mentor. "He taught me how to watch film, he taught me how to play certain positions, and on top of all that just the mindset you have to have to go into a game, to go into a practice, to go into life," Wise said on a conference call. "I have a great relationship with Trey and I'm looking forward to meeting him up there and working with him."

The Patriots selected Arkansas DE Deatrich Wise with their fourth-round pick, as the team double dips at a position that was its top area of need entering the draft. The 6-foot-5, 274-pound Wise has some rare physical traits that naturally appeal to the Patriots, such as 35 5/8-inch arm length and 10 1/2-inch hand size. He plays with power and took a pre-draft visit to New England, so he was very much on the team's radar. In 2015, the Patriots struck gold with a long-armed DE from Arkansas in Trey Flowers. Now they hope the Wise pick pays off similarly.

Thanks to the addition of three transfers, the Razorbacks offense could see significant improvement in 2017.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Razorbacks didn't compete for the SEC West title last year, but they have a lot to look forward to when Austin Allen takes the field in Saturday's spring game. Although he was prone to turnovers, the rising senior also put up big numbers through the air last season.
