The Razorback football team doesn't have a true senior along their defensive line. But that hasn't stopped the optimism. In fact, this coaching staff is seeing improvement and still asking for more.

The defensive line will be one of the most important position groups to watch at this weekend's Spring Game. Here are the storylines you need to know:

1️⃣ We Want It All: The Arkansas coaching staff has made it clear—they want to get to the quarterback this year. That's one reason they made a coaching change and brought in former Tulsa coach Jermial Ashley, who was a former standout defensive end and All-Big 12 performer at Kansas in the mid-2000s. There is talent at defensive end, but it is no secret the sack totals have been less than impressive.

2️⃣ Change Is The Only Constant: The Razorback defensive line saw a lot of three-man fronts last season. But coaches have worked multiple defensive fronts this spring, practicing three-man and four-man fronts ahead of an important year. How are players responding?

3️⃣ Dream Big: Last season, Razorback defensive lineman Isaiah Nichols started seven out of the nine games he played at either defensive tackle in a four-man front or at defensive end in a three-man front. Despite all the changes, Arkansas football coaches are counting on him to be the main man in the middle of their 3-2-6 alignment in 2021.
