Felix Jones

6-0, 208 ~ Sophomore
Tailback
Tulsa, Okla.

Felix Jones has been voted Top Hawg by the subscribers of HawgSports.com after the Razorbacks' 38-3 win over SEC-Western Division foe Ole Miss in Fayetteville (Ark.).

Jones set the tone early as he returned the game's opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown to put the game at 7-0. It was the second 100-yard return of his career. He also rushed 9 times for 51 yards. Jones is leading the Southeaster Conference in yards per carry with 9.0 yards per carry.

Jones has built on a fantastic freshman season that saw him end up No. 3 on the all-time freshman rushing chart at Arkansas. So far this season, the All-American has rushed 58 times for 520 yards and is averaging nearly 27 yards per kickoff return. Jones has also caught 9 passes for 74 yards and 1 touchdown on the season. He was a four-star 'athlete' recruit coming out of Booker T. Washington in 2005.

Michael Smith

5-7, 170 ~ RS Frosh
Tailback
Tallahassee, Fla.

Michael Smith has been voted Top Hawg by the subscribers of HawgSports.com after the Razorbacks' 63-7 win over Division I-AA opponent Southeast Missouri State in Fayetteville (Ark.).

Smith did several things for the first time on Saturday. He reached the 100-yard rushing mark with 8 carries for 116 yards. He also scored the first two touchdowns of his career on runs of 10 and 11 yards. Smith returned his first kickoff attempt 48 yards to the SEMO 27-yard line.

Smith has been plagued with hamstring injuries since he arrived at Arkansas. He probably would have played as a true freshman if not for those problems. He re-injured a hamstring in fall camp, and it set him back further, but he has stayed healthy since that incident and saw important carries against Vanderbilt and Alabama. Smith chose the Hogs over Auburn, Florida, Purdue and Northwestern coming out of Rickards High School.

Darren McFadden

6-2, 212 ~ Sophomore
Tailback
Little Rock, Ark.

Darren McFadden has been voted Top Hawg by the subscribers of HawgSports.com after the Razorbacks' impressive 27-10 stomping of previously undefeated No. 2 Auburn on national television.

McFadden had a game-changing performance late in the second quarter when he dashed 63 yards up the gut to put the Hogs ahead 17-10. He finished with 28 carries for 145 yards and a touchdown in the win. With the performance, he vaulted to the nation's No. 3 running back in the Rivals.com Power Rankings.

McFadden is in his second season as the starter for the Razorbacks. Coming off first-team All-SEC honors last season, he is off to a fantastic start in leading the SEC with 554 rushing yards, leading with 110.8 yards per game and leading in touchdowns with four, and he only had nine carries against USC because he was coming off a toe injury.

Randy Kelly

6-0, 185 ~ Senior
Strong Safety
Brandenton, Fla.

Randy Kelly has been voted Top Hawg by the subscribers of HawgSports.com after the Razorbacks' thrilling 24-23 double overtime week four home win over the University of Alabama.

Kelly made a game changing play when he scooped up an Antwain Robinson forced fumble on Bama quarterback John Parker Wilson and dashed 39 yards for a touchdown. It was the first turnover recovery for the Razorbacks on the season. In addition to that, Kelly played an oustanding game in logging 13 tackles.

Kelly is in his third year starting, and he has logged time at both strong and free safety. He came on extremely well towards the end of last season, but he has not played up to that form so far this season until the Razorbacks hosted the Crimson Tide. Kelly was a three-star recruit out of Coffeyville Community College.

6-3, 208 ~ Freshman
Quarterback
Springdale, Ark.

Mitch Mustain has been voted Top Hawg by the subscribers of HawgSports.com after the Razorbacks' 21-19 week three win over Vanderbilt University.

Mustain finished the game 13-for-20 passing (65 percent) for 224 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. He registered a 198.6 passer rating on the day and completed passes of 56, 41 and 41 yards. Mustain also did a better job of managing the offense against a tougher opponent without busted plays or bobbled handoffs.

Mustain was a five-star recruit, rated the nation's No. 10 overall prospect. So far, he is living up to his billing, and he picked up SEC Freshman of the Week and Rivals.com National Freshman of the Week honors for his outstanding showing in his first road start.

Tailback
Little Rock, Ark.

Darren McFadden has been voted Top Hawg by the subscribers of HawgSports.com after the Razorbacks' 20-0 week two win over Utah State University.

McFadden led the Razorbacks with 20 carries for 184 yards and two touchdowns, including a career long 72-yarder. He is coming off a serious injury to his left big toe. McFadden says he is still the same in terms of percentage of health, but he is getting used to simply dealing with and accepting the pain of playing with the injury.

There were high hopes for McFadden entering the season, and there was much concern after the injury, but he played in the first game to the surprise of most. He can take it to the house on any given play.

Chris Houston

5-11, 181 ~ Junior
Left Cornerback
Austin, Texas

Chris Houston has been voted Top Hawg by the subscribers of HawgSports.com after the Razorbacks' 50-14 season opening loss to the University of Southern California.

Houston led the defense against one of the nation's best wide receivers, USC's Dwayne Jarrett, Houston basically shut him down and Jarrett finished with only five catches for 35 yards in the game.

Houston was beaten mostly last season against USC, and it was one of the best things to ever happen to him. He has been a different player since last spring, and it was easy to see the 450-pound bench presser would be a different player this year.
