FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) The number of Arkansas quarterbacks dropped from five to three this week, but the leader at the position hasn't changed - Brandon Allen is No. 1 for now.
The Razorbacks moved A.J. Derby to tight end and Damon Mitchell to wide receiver during practice this week. Both made catches during the team's second open scrimmage Saturday.
Derby, who started one game last season because of an injury to Allen and played the majority of another, caught an 8-yard scoring pass from Allen and dropped a would-be score in busted coverage Saturday. Mitchell caught a 28-yard screen pass, rushed twice for 10 yards and fielded punts.
