Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze told reporters it is time to turn junior WR Laquon Treadwell loose.

Treadwell broke his fibula and dislocated his ankle in November. Treadwell recently posted a video of himself running routes with multiple breaks and accelerating after the catch. Freeze said the receiver is a "full-go" now. Prior to the injury, Treadwell was one of the top receivers in the country.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell posted a video on social media presenting his route running following a broken leg in November.

It was not just any broken leg, as Treadwell his fibula and dislocated his ankle. The video shows a route including multiple breaks, and Treadwell looks comfortable and fluid with three more months until the season starts.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell (ankle) "is a natural receiver who causes a lot of mismatches," notes Walter Football.

The site ranks Pittsburgh junior WR Tyler Boyd as the No. 1 receiver, placing Treadwell No. 2. Most rank Treadwell No. 1. Treadwell posted 72 receptions for 608 yards with five scores as a true freshman in 2013. The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder had 48 receptions for 632 yards and five scores last season before his gruesome ankle injury.

Mississippi junior TE Evan Engram "is arguably the nation's top tight end and will also be considered for the first round," notes SB Nation's Dan Kadar.

The 6-foot-3, 227-pound Engran needs to bulk up, but he's got at least one more year to do so. He has outstanding receiving tools. Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench compares him to former Gator TE Jordan Reed: "He has soft hands, he catches away from his frame, and he doesn't have to break stride to bring it in. He also has the speed to make plays down the seam and enough agility to produce after the catch."

If he proves entirely healthy, Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil "could also be in the No. 1 pick discussion," SB Nation's Dan Kadar believes.

Tunsil fractured his fibula in the bowl loss to TCU in December but is expected to be recovered in time for the start of the season. Proving his health by not missing a game in 2015 is crucial for his draft stock. Fox Sports' Kevin Causey also believes Tunsil is a possibility to go No. 1 overall, and ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks him as the No. 2 overall prospect.

NFL Media ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No.2 returning offensive player for 2015.

"The two-year anchor of the Rebels' offensive line might be the best pass protector in the country. In 2013, he was one of just two true freshmen in the entire NCAA to be a full-time starter at left tackle, and allowed only one sack all season," wrote Chase Goodbread. The Mississippi prospect fractured his fibula back in December, during the Rebel's bowl loss to TCU. With a healthy 2015 season, he has a chance to go in the top half of the first round in 2016.

Ole Miss QB/TE Jeremy Liggins was moved to T this spring.

Hugh Freeze said the move was for recruiting reasons, so the school doesn't have to offer tackle recruits just to add depth at the position. The reality is its Liggins' best chance to have a future career. He was a bit of a gadget player at both quarterback and tight end, but his frame lends itself to a career along the offensive line. Liggins showed willingness as a blocker during his time at tight end, being used in 12 personnel to complement receiving tight end Evan Engram. Freeze did keep the possibility of quarterback open for Liggins, however.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell (ankle) "could move into the top ten if he's truly healthy and has productive season this fall," wrote Scout.com's Jamie Newberg.

The analyst ranks him as the No. 24 prospect in the nation with that caveat. Treadwell, of course, dislocated his ankle and broke his fibula against Auburn late last season. "When healthy and roaring, Treadwell is one of the most dangerous players in the game," Newberg wrote. "He has good size, athleticism, speed and quickness. He's strong and runs good routes, creating separation out of his breaks." The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Treadwell has collected 120 catches for over 1,240 yards and 10 touchdowns across 22 career games.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranked Mississippi junior S Antonio "Tony" Conner as the No. 20 prospect overall on his first Big Board of 2016.

"Yet another high school star who became an immediate impact in Oxford, Conner has the range of a safety but will come downhill like a linebacker," he wrote. "And at 217 pounds, he is comfortable near the line of scrimmage, even in the backfield; he did tie for the team lead with nine tackles for loss. He's one reason the 2016 safety class already looks better than the 2015 group." This is the most aggressive we've seen Conner ranked this offseason. Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench compared the 6-foot-1 Conner to a less physical and worst-testing version of former Mizzou S William Moore last season.

Scout.com ranks Ole Miss junior DL Robert Nkemdiche as the No. 5 overall prospect.

The site is obviously very familiar with Nkemdiche, who they ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the country coming out of high school. "This is a naturally strong and powerful defensive lineman best suited to play defensive tackle in a 4-3 or the ideal defensive end in a 3-4 scheme," Jamie Newberg wrote. "Nkemdiche is the leanest 285-pound lineman you will ever lay eyes on. He gets off the ball well and simply overpowers the opposition. He has good athleticism and speed for a big man but he will never be confused for a fast, twitchy edge rusher. Nkemdiche can stun blockers with his initial jolt." For some of these reasons, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Nkemdiche will receive comparisons to Leonard Williams. "Nkemdiche is still a work in progress as he continies to learn the game and develop more technique," wrote Newberg. "He's sneaky athletic and actually played some running back in high school. There's no doubt Nkemdiche was one of the greatest hig

Scout.com ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No. 4 overall prospect.

"[Tunsil is] a massive tackle (6-5/305) with great length and athleticism out on the tackle island," wrote Jamie Newberg. "Tunsil's strength is his ability to pass protect, using his feet and reach to keep pass rushers at bay. He has good agility, bends well and knows how to effectively uses his hands. Tunsil has been a starter since day one and has only given up two sacks in two seasons in the rugged SEC." Fox Sports' Kevin Causey believes Tunsil is a possibility to go No. 1 overall and ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks him as the No. 2 overall prospect.

Fox Sports' Kevin Causey sees Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as a possibility to go No. 1 overall next year.

"In 2013, the Kansas City Chiefs opted to go with offensive lineman Eric Fisher as the first pick," Causey wrote. "Depending on which team has the first pick in 2016, Laremy Tunsil might make a lot of sense. As a sophomore, he was arguably the best left tackle in the Nation. As a junior, he should only get better." Tunsil fractured his fibula in the bowl loss to TCU in December and is making his way back now. If he proves his health, he's a surefire top-15 prospect.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell, who played at 230 pounds last year, is now down to 212 pounds.

Back in November, the Ole Miss prospect broke his fibula and a dislocated and ankle against Auburn, as he was crossing the goal line. Feldman notes how "amazing" Treadwell has looked running, only 6 months from his injury. The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Treadwell has the ideal size and athleticism for the next level, and should be fully healthy, and ready to go for the start of the season.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell checked in at No. 7 on Mel Kiper's first big board.

"At 6-2 and nearly 230 pounds, Treadwell, has size, speed and tremendous hands," Kiper wrote. "He was unquestionably the best WR on the team as a true freshman, even with Donte Moncrief still around. And while his season was cut short in 2014 due to an ugly injury, Treadwell should be 100 percent in the fall. If he stays that way, he's got the potential to be a first-rounder next spring." Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze recently said Treadwell will be healthy by the time the season starts. Treadwell went No. 13 to the 49ers in Todd McShay's 2016 mock draft. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Treadwell "has a Dez Bryant skill-set with his size and athleticism combination to be a mismatch against cornerbacks on the outside."

ESPN Draft analyst Mel Kiper has Ole Miss junior DL Robert Nkemdiche as his No.4 overall prospect on his 2016 big board, and believes he "has the potential to break out in 2015 as he gets comfortable."

"He has exceptional movement skills for a player his size (6-4, 280 pounds). And although I want to see more production from him, he has been thrown into the mix early, all while making position adjustments, and has the potential to break out in 2015 as he gets comfortable," Kiper wrote. The Ole Miss prospect started his career at DE and has now moved inside to DT. Nkemdiche has the ability to be effective versus the pass and is strong against the run as well. With his added weight, Nkemdiche could be a fit at DT at the next level, but still has the athleticism and ability to play DE.
