NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks wrote that "the bottom fell out" for Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace on Saturday against LSU.

"Wallace completed only 42.4 percent of his throws and made a number of questionable decisions that cost the Rebels an opportunity to sneak out of Death Valley with a rare win," Brooks wrote. "Given how harshly scouts critique quarterback play in big games and clutch situations, Wallace's failures against the Tigers will certainly impact his draft stock going forward." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler received a text from an NFL scout during the game: "There's the Bo Wallace we all know and love." Ouch. If Wallace can't star with an awesome cast of offensive talent around him, he has no chance of getting drafted.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace "was plagued by poor decisions and inaccuracy in the Rebel's 10-7 loss to LSU on Saturday.

"Wallace made a poor decision to end the game, but Wallace created a lot of goodwill among NFL decision-makers through the first half of his senior season, including his outstanding effort in the win over Alabama. However, he was plagued by poor decisions and inaccuracy Saturday," Brugler wrote. The Ole Miss prospect only completed 14 of 33 attempts for 176 yards, with one touchdown and one interception against LSU. Brugler notes, that he received a text from an NFL scout on Wallace's performance: "There's the Bo Wallace we all know and love."

ESPN's Mel Kiper writes that Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson "is a top-10 CB for me right now in the 2015 draft class."

Golson picked off his eighth pass of the season in Saturday's game against LSU. Along with Mike Hilton, Cody Prewitt and Trae Elston, Ole Miss boasts one of the nation's best secondaries. An AFC area scout told NFL.com earlier this month that Golson must show he can play man-to-man defense in order to play in nickel packages in the NFL. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Golson has 4.43 speed. NFL media's Albert Breer calls him "a poor man's version of Chargers rookie Jason Verrett."

Ole Miss redshirt junior LB Denzel Nkemdiche will miss the remainder of the season with a broken ankle.

Nkemdiche suffered the injury on Saturday against LSU and underwent surgery on Sunday. Head coach Hugh Freeze said senior Serderius Bryant will start in place of Nkdemiche. If the last name sounds familiar, Denzel is the older brother of star interior defensive lineman Robert. Despite the team's loss to LSU, Ole Miss' defense still played at a high level.

Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson picked off his eighth pass of the season in Saturday's game against LSU.

Golson's All-American resume is looking pretty darn good right about now. He picked off LSU QB Anthony Jennings with around two minutes left in the third quarter. The Rebels, who didn't pick up a first down in the third stanza, failed to capitalize. NFL media's Albert Breer calls Golson "a poor man's version of Chargers rookie Jason Verrett." The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Golson has 4.43 speed.

Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell caught four passes for 71 yards in Saturday's 10-7 loss to LSU.

The Rebels led 7-0 at the end of first quarter and didn't dent the scoreboard thereafter. Rebels' QB Bo Wallace scuffled against a powerful LSU defense, limiting Treadwell's impact on the game. The 6-foot-2, 229-pound Treadwell, the No. 10 overall player in the 2013 class, has caught four balls or more in every game this season.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 14 of 33 attempts for 176 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the school's 10-7 loss to LSU.

After putting his best foot forward for much of the season, this was not a "Good Bo" performance. Wallace is in a perfect situation to succeed this season thanks to an awesome offensive line and outstanding receivers who can win in contested situations. Obviously Bo takes advantage of his supporting cast, but LSU's defensive line started attacking the box and made Wallace believe he had to frequently check the ball down.

Archie Manning has stepped down from the College Football Playoff committee due to complications from knee replacement surgery, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Per Mort, Manning needs additional surgery but nothing is expected to be life-threatening. He just does not have enough time to devote to the committee. ESPN's Brett McMurphy added the group will likely stay at 12 members instead of the original 13.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 13-of-28 attempts for 199 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 34-3 win against Tennessee.

The 6-foot-4, 217-pound Wallace hasn't thrown an interception in the month of October. He's improved his pro projection greatly this season while leading Ole Miss to a 7-0 start. Wallace's stats are up across the board: His completion percentage has improved each of the past two years, his YPA is up from 7.66 to 9.09, and he's posted a 17/6 TD/INT ratio after logging an 18/10 TD/INT ratio last year.

Mississippi sophomore TE Evan Engram had a 28-yard touchdown catch in Saturday's triumph over Tennessee.

The third quarter TD grab, Engram's only reception of the game, put the Rebels up 24-3. It was his first touchdown catch of the year. Typically, he'll see more targets. Engram has hauled in 19 receptions for 292 yards this year. Earlier this month, ESPN's Steve Muench compared the 6-foot-3, 227-pound sophomore Engram to former Gator and current Redskins 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."

Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson had two interceptions in Saturday's win over Tennessee.

He returned the pair of picks for 19 yards total. Golson is up to an impressive seven interceptions during Ole Miss' 7-0 start. An AFC area scout told NFL.com last week that Golson must show he can play man-to-man defense in order to play in nickel packages in the NFL. NFL media's Albert Breer called Golson "a poor man's version of Chargers rookie Jason Verrett." The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Golson has 4.43 speed.

Mississippi senior S Cody Prewitt "is someone who keeps getting better every time I watch him on tape," said an AFC player personnel director.

"He anticipates really well, tackles in the open field, and is a heck of a leader and ballhawk," the evaluator said. "I see him with a skill set similar to Eric Reid (former LSU safety now with the San Francisco 49ers), but (Prewitt) has been more consistent in his college career." CBS Sports' Rob Rang had a different comparison earlier this week, calling Prewitt "this year's Deone Bucannon."

One AFC area scout believes Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson must show he can play man-to-man defense in order to play in nickel packages in the NFL.

The scout did praise Golson's ball skills and pointed to the match-up against Texas A&M as one evaluators will look at to see if he can cover bigger receivers. NFL media's Albert Breer called Golson "a poor man's version of Chargers rookie Jason Verrett."

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that in the big win against Texas A&M, Mississippi senior S Cody Prewitt "showed off the range, ball skills and physicality scouts are looking for in today's safeties," while calling him this years "Deone Bucannon."

"This year's version (Deone Bucannon) could be Mississippi's Cody Prewitt, who at 6-foot-2, 212 pounds is built very similarly to Bucannon (6-foot-1, 211) and in the big win against Texas A&M, he showed off the range, ball skills and physicality scouts are looking for in today's safeties," Rang wrote. For his performance versus Texas A & M, Prewitt was named the SEC's Defensive Player of the Week, recording seven tackles and returning an interception 75 yards for a touchdown.

ESPN's Todd McShay highlights Mississippi senior S Cody Prewitt as a prospect on the rise.

"The entire Ole Miss defense (aka the "Landsharks") has been sensational. But Prewitt is the senior captain who shows up every week," the analyst wrote. "He's not exceptional in any area, with just average straight-line speed at 6-1 and 220 pounds, and he's likely a midround NFL draft pick. But he's a very good all-around football player whose best quality is his football smarts." Prewitt ran a Kenny Hill pass back 75 yards for a touchdown in Saturday's road victory. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline allotted him a preseason Round 7 grade, but he's going to go higher than that.
