It was first day in full pads and so it took 30 seconds to get the first explosion in the Hog drill. Through 15 matchups, among the winners were Colton Jackson, Austin Capps, McTelvin Agim, Hjalte Froholdt and Austin Cantrell.
The practice moved inside because of lightning in the area. Not dressing out were the kickers and specialists. They flipped back outside after the first 20 minutes with the storm moving south of town.
One of the observers was former Arkansas linebacker Cliff Powell, invited to practice by Barry Lunney. Powell said there was more hitting in the first 20 minutes of practice than in an entire two hour workout in his day. Of course, Powell was an All-American for the Hogs in the late 1960s.
Hog drill is a hitting drill. I don’t know that it’s anything other than locking up and straining there. I didn’t observe running there. He can still move, but the young tight end with best wheels is CJ O’Grady. And O’Grady did well in Hog drill, too.
