Ricky Stromberg, Center

Razorbacks starting center Ricky Stromberg, a junior out of Tulsa, Oklahoma has a lot of options as this season winds down.

Stromberg, at 6’4″ 310 lbs, already has an NFL-body. He may decide to test the waters or he could come back for one more season with the Hogs— he still has eligibility remaining to play in college, so he could come back.

Stromberg has been fantastic in his career at Arkansas and been a pillar for quarterback KJ Jefferson to depend on to keep opposing linemen away.

If Stromberg comes back for another season, it would provide more consistency and reliability for the offense.

Treylon Burks, Wide Receiver

Like Stromberg, Burks will very likely be considered as one of the first wide receivers taken in the 2022 NFL Draft.

He has not indicated whether he will come back for another season or confirmed if he’ll play in the bowl game, but we hope he’ll come back to give the Razorbacks a lethal weapon on offense.

Burks was recently just named to Pro Football Focus’ First Team All-SEC. He recorded 67 catches for 1,235 yards and 12 touchdowns this season, which is one of the best seasons by a wide receiver in team history.

If Burks were to come back for one more season, he could elevate his draft stock and help the Razorbacks push Alabama for the best team in the SEC-West.
