Arkansas’s FAYETTEVILLE Friday morning, Arkansas offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino joined the “Morning Mayhem” crew on 103.7 The Buzz in Little Rock to inform Razorbacks supporters about the main offensive players that the team would be scrimmaging on Saturday. This is what he said.
Regarding QB Start Green Taylen

“Taylen is a natural leader and has really done a great job since he came here. Taylen was undoubtedly the first person to jump in front of the line and pick up the ball when you initially tossed it out there, as is sometimes the case when people start working here or take on a role like this. He wasn’t bashful about it from the beginning. He was the first person to run with us.

“Yeah, well, you know, the way he stands and moves in the pocket, and the things he does there, you can’t help but think of Ryan because he’s so huge and tall and because he’s capable of doing things that other people can’t just because of their size and strength. Then there’s his ball-running technique. He can now tuck it and run, and he’s really quick. His acceleration and speed, but not the direction shift, are somewhat reminiscent of Lamar Jackson, so it’s a nice combo. When things go wrong, I believe it makes a big difference when your quarterback can create plays.

Yes, it’s been enjoyable, and Malachi Singleton, Jacoby Criswell, and KJ Jackson are engaged in a terrific rivalry. The real freshmen is KJ. I believe he has a very bright future ahead of him. He is a grown-up child. He’s a lefty, 6-4, and 320 pounds, and he’s harsh on himself. I believe he needs to learn to be less hard on himself. But he’s improving every day, and Jacoby and Malachi have been fierce competitors. Because of the drops we make and the offense we run, it’s a bit different for them. They are all improving and learning, therefore.”
