Ground and Pound: Arkansas Offensive Players to Watch vs. Texas A&M

A surging and talented Arkansas offense will be a load for the Aggies

Slowing down the Arkansas Razorbacks offense is going to be a tall task for the Texas A&M Aggies in Saturday's SEC matchup AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Arkansas features nine starters returning from last year, but the main change comes at quarterback. KJ Jefferson has stepped into that role and has led to Hogs to a 3-0 start.

Jefferson's biggest impact has come in the run game. Arkansas is eighth in the country in rushing, averaging 282.3 yards per contest. 

Arkansas also boasts the No. 22 total offense, averaging 492.3 yards, and the No. 21 scoring offense at 41 points per game.

With that in mind, here are a few players to watch on the offensive side of the ball for the Razorbacks.
