The Arkansas Razorbacks are losing two prominent members of their offense ahead of the 2016 campaign. Monday morning, both tight end Hunter Henry and offensive lineman Denver Kirkland declared for the NFL Draft, opting to forgo their senior seasons in Fayetteville. Henry made the announcement via a letter on Arkansas’ official website, while Kirkland tweeted his news.
The two announced their decisions within eight minutes of each other.
