In fact, he knows exactly what he needs right now to complete the puzzle and that's somebody to step up behind starting guards Brey Cook and Mitch Smothers.
Candidates include junior Jonathan McClure (6-4, 329) and sophomore Austin Beck (6-7, 300) – who are currently running second team – as well as back-up junior center Luke Charpentier (6-4, 318) and freshman Reeve Koehler (6-4, 340).
"We have moved different guys in there and we are trying to find a three and we are trying to find a four after that," Pittman said. "We think we are headed in the right direction. I really like where we are at two-and-half weeks out."
Pittman notes that his first-team line is really meshing together with their reads.
"I like where we are at in the way we are seeing things, some pressures and things of that nature," Pittman said. "Especially today and yesterday. We are starting to come around a little bit."
He was pleased with what Charpentier did with the first-team offense in Saturday's scrimmage when the Razorbacks held out All-American center Travis Swanson due to a minor injury."
"That was neat," Pittman said. "Obviously you don't want to have small injuries or whatever – Trav had a bit of a strain – so we decided to hold him out and Luke got in there. I told him in the meeting (before the scrimmage) ‘you're the captain of this thing now' and certainly I told the other guys to rally around him and they did and he did a nice job."
Redshirt freshman Cordale Boyd (6-3, 312) worked as the second-team center in last Saturday's scrimmage.
"He did a nice job and had not done it ever since I have been here," Pittman said. "It was his second practice at it and I thought he did a nice job and has been doing a good job this week."
As did true freshmen tackles Dan Skipper (6-10, 305) and Denver Kirkland (6-5, 348), who are running second team behind starters David Hurd (6-6, 318) and Grady Ollison (6-5, 304).
"Dan and Denver are getting the two reps and they are what we thought they were going to be," Pittman said. "They are having to learn the offense and all the things that a defense can do to it. But they are what we thought they would be.
"They are talented, they are big kids, they are strong," Pittman added. "They just have to understand the offense better than they do today, but every day they get a little better."
Arkansas offensive coordinator Jim Chaney agreed that the two true freshmen offensive lineman had been impressive.
"I'm still comfortable with them and I think they have earned the right to be in there and getting reps with the twos and see what they can do," Chaney said. "Are they ready to get in there yet? I don't know. It's too early to say."
Chaney is very pleased with what he is seeing out of starting quarterback Brandon Allen, who was 16-of-17 passing for 204 yards with one touchdown and no picks in last Satuday's scrimmage.
"He's backing it up after having a pretty good day on Saturday with some pretty good practices this week," Chaney said. "As we work through some concepts that he has struggled with, we are going back through them and he has improved on them also.
"I think his (memory) bank is getting a little bit bigger with the things he understands and what I feel comfortable calling for him," Chaney said.
True freshman signal callers Austin Allen and Damon Mitchell are knee deep in the learning process per Chaney.
"They are hanging together all the way through it and their heads are spinning like all freshmen quarterbacks," Chaney said. "Each one of them learns a couple of things and the other one learns something and then they put them together.
"I am pleased with both of them," Chaney added. "They both have very different skill sets. I like them, they are good young men and they are competing hard. They love the position and they have a passion for the game so I don't know why they won't be successful."
He notes he is very clear what he wants out of his quarterbacks.
"Ball security, make big plays when they are there, make great decisions and throw the ball accurately" Chaney said. "Everybody makes a lot about the quarterback position, but ultimately they have one job. Their one job is to get the ball to the playmakers. That's it."
Chaney says there is a good battle going on with the running backs with sophomore Jonathan Williams leading the way.
"It sure looks to me like," Chaney said. "I don't know how it is going to shake out, but we have a bunch of kids playing hard and doing a nice job.
"I will point out Jonathan," Chaney added. "I think he had a good practice this morning. He wasn't bouncing around and was just running hard and real heavy, which we have encouraged him to get better at. You don't want to give him too much because he is a perfectionist and it would slow him down. You just want him to play and have fun."
