Kurt Anderson Makes Some Changes in the Offensive LIne at Tuesday Drills

Colton Jackson worked at first team left tackle with Brian Wallace moving to right guard in the early periods of Tuesday's practice in day five for the Arkansas spring.

It appears that Kurt Anderson continues to look for the right chemistry up front in the offensive line. Whether or not it was an experiment, or a decision that's set is unknown, but there was a change Tuesday.

Anderson is the new offensive line coach charged with replacing starters Sebastian Tretola at left guard, Mitch Smothers at center and Denver Kirkland at left tackle.

Brian Wallace was moved from left tackle to right guard in the offensive line on Tuesday. That moved Colton Jackson, redshirt freshman, up to the first team at left tackle. Johnny Gibson appears to be working behind Jackson at left tackle. That's where Gibson was slotted last year as the backup to the departed Denver Kirkland.

The rest of the offensive line stayed the same. Hjalte Froholdt is still working as the top left guard. Frank Ragnow is at center, with Zach Rogers behind him there. It's Dan Skipper with Klint Harvey next at right tackle. Jalen Merrick and Deion Malone are working as the backup guards.

There were four centers taking snaps in the specialty session at the start of practice. Ragnow, Rogers, Merrick and Froholdt took snaps.

Austin Allen looked especially good in the early passing drills, throwing a lot of strikes on deep corners.

The Hogs were working inside, presumably to find better conditions than 25-30 mph wind.
