Senior Cedric Washington is expected to be named the second starting wide receiver opposite junior Marcus Monk.
Washington started seven games last season, catching 27 passes for 365 yards and one touchdown.
Nutt singled out Washington following Wednesday's practice for being among the team's most consistent wide receivers, along with Monk.
Meanwhile, junior Chris Baker said that he's been told that he's behind Monk on the depth chart. That leaves Washington as the starting flanker.
"With (Cedric) being a senior, he knows the ropes, what all we've been through," Baker said. "So, (the coaches) are kind of looking up to him to be the leader of the receivers."
That means that kicker is the only position still unresolved.
Arkansas' coaches have said that the job is between either sophomore Stephen Arnold or freshman Dan Bailey, who have gone back and forth in practice.
But Nutt refused to name the starter when asked Wednesday, though he admits he has a good idea as to whom it will be.
"I've got a good idea," Nutt said. "(I) got to sleep on it one more time."
Meanwhile, Arkansas defensive coordinator Reggie Herring said junior Michael Grant has pulled away as the starting free safety.
At one time, junior-college transfer Matt Hewitt was pushing Grant for the starting job, but Herring said it's not even close anymore.
"I don't think there's any competition right now, personally," Herring said. "I think there is a big area between Grant and Hewitt right now as far as the way things have transpired."
Herring said that Hewitt is a "solid" safety, but he doesn't have the experience or ability to beat out Grant for the starting job just yet.
"You're looking at a Michael Grant who's been to Athens, Ga., and made interceptions," Herring said. "He's played in SEC games, so he's got the mental edge and ability over Hewitt right now."
