FAYETTEVILLE — If there’s one position the University of Arkansas could do one of those pipeline-to-the pros touts, it would be tight end.

A case could be made the Razorbacks have become a Tight End U since the end of the Houston Nutt era. A nearly unbroken line exists from D.J. Williams to Chris Gragg to A.J. Derby to Hunter Henry to Jeremy Sprinkle and up to Cheyenne O’Grady, who flashed pro potential a couple of years ago but hasn’t wound up there.
