08:35 AM ET 03.16 | With Tyler Wilson off to the NFL after two seasons as Arkansas starting quarterback, arguably the main focus for the Razorbacks during their first spring practice under Bret Bielema is to at least begin the process of separating contenders from pretenders at the position. One week into the 15 allotted spring sessions? Two of the contenders appear to be standing a bit taller than the others. In his first extensive comments to the media since spring practice began a week ago today, Bielema allowed that a pair of Brandons -- Allen and Mitchell -- have nudged ahead slightly in the chase to replace Wilson. "I think there is no doubt on offense the key is going to be who is going to be our trigger puller, and I think Brandon Allen and Brandon Mitchell both have shown that they've been ahead of the curve," Bielema said in comments distributed by the school. The fact that Allen and Mitchell would be ahead of the quarterback game just a handful of practices into the spring makes sense.
