Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson "is effective in run support for his size," wrote's Kevin Weidl.

"Golson is another undersized cornerback who has the versatility to slide inside to the nickelback position," Weidl wrote. "He has above-average fluidity along with strong playmaking instincts and ball skills." Golson led the SEC with 10 interceptions in 2014. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler adds that Golson's "lack of height and length will push him down draft boards."
Feb 15 - 3:48 PM's RecruitingNation compares WR DaMarkus Lodge, the No. 57 ranked player in the ESPN 300, to Justin Hunter of the Tennessee Titans.

"Both players are long, lean, flexible and have a penchant for making acrobatic catches look easy," wrote Gerry Hamilton and Tom Luginbill. "They are similar in size and structure as well. Hunter was lean and lanky coming out as a prep star, but with great body control and flexibility to make very difficult grabs when elevated and in contested matchups downfield. This is also where Lodge shines." Lodge has also been compared to Oklahoma's Jaz Reynolds. "Lodge is ahead of the curve in the small nuances it takes to be a productive college receiver," added Hamilton and Luginbill. "His hands are excellent and he has the length to create vertical mismatches. Route running can be sharper and speed is not elite but we expect him to contribute as a freshman, perhaps in red zone personnel packages early on."

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace wasn't invited to the 2015 NFL combine.

Wallace has a very slim chance of getting drafted. This news, obviously, won't help. Dr. Bo has a sturdy frame and a big arm. Bad Bo, his alter ego, panics in the face of pressure, is easily rattled, allows mistakes to multiply, and doesn't understand the limits of his ability. We're sad we won't get to watch him anymore.

Mississippi CB Tony Bridges "is lean but also has the skills to play safety if needed," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin.

The Rebels desperately need Bridges to be as good as his hype says he is. With CB Senquez Golson and FS Cody Prewitt both NFL-bound, Bridges will compete for a starting gig immediately. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder grades out as the No. 7 JUCO recruit, according to

Mississippi commit DT D.J. Jones ranks as's No. 5 junior college transfer.

"During spring, he will be looking to get into the tackle rotation for the Rebels, who are losing two senior tackles, though neither was a starter," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. "Jones, who went to East Mississippi CC, is expected to see time at both tackle spots -- Ole Miss also uses a nose tackle -- and is considered stout at the point of attack." The 6-foot-2, 315-pounder already enrolled. He originally committed to Florida State before signing with the Rebels.

High school WR DaMarkus Lodge, the No. 57 ranked player in the ESPN 300, "seemed like almost a slam dunk for Ole Miss a few weeks back, and it still might be," reported's RecruitingNation.

"But Texas made a major push after the well-documented unofficial visit Lodge made two weeks ago with No. 1 dual-threat quarterback Kyler Murray," reported ESPN. "Lodge could easily end up in Austin, but the Rebels have made him a big priority from day one and that's left a lasting impression on him." Lodge decommitted from Texas A&M in September. The site says Lodge is similar to Oklahoma's Jaz Reynolds. "Lodge is a potential high BCS prospect with a breakout junior year," according to his scouting report. "Added speed and additional size will determine how productive he will be at the next level. Has the natural skill set to develop into a go-to college receiver."

Ole Miss S Cody Prewitt "ended the notion that he's a run-defending safety who struggles in coverage" at the Senior Bowl, noted TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Prewitt's solid play in coverage will enhance his draft stock," Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Prewitt "is someone who keeps getting better every time I watch him on tape," an AFC player personnel director told during the regular season. That evaluator compared Prewitt to former LSU S Eric Reid, while CBS Sports' Rob Rang called Prewitt "this year's Deone Bucannon."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes a good week in Mobile will help scouts "look past [Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson's] lack of height and focus on his cover skills."

"One of only two FBS players to reach double-digit interceptions in 2014, Golson led the SEC with 10 pick-offs and put together a strong senior campaign," Brugler wrote. "But measuring below 5-9 on the scale, how high do NFL teams take a player who can be so over-matched on the outside?" Some analysts believe Golson will be relegated to nickel duties at the next level.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace reminds Bleacher Report's Matt Miller of Tom Savage.

"Especially in that he could see a rise up draft boards based on his size and arm strength, but also in that his hype is greater than his traits or production from those traits," Miller wrote. The analyst believes Wallace could be drafted. For the record, we absolutely don't think he's worthy of a pick. "If accuracy is the most important trait for a quarterback prospect, then Wallace will struggle to find a home in the NFL," Miller wrote. "Wallace's draft position can't be predicted right now, but his talent grade is as a late-rounder."

NFL Media spoke with one NFC scout who expects to see more S prospects convert to WLB once entering the league.

"According to the veteran evaluator, NFL teams are casting their eyes to big, athletic safeties as possible replacements at the position because there are so few prospects at the position," NFL media writes. With how often NFL teams are in nickel personnel on defensive, teams have decided to go "big" with their fifth defensive back and add a safety instead of a corner. Or, teams just replace one linebacker with a safety and a dd another corner and go dime. Look at Deone Bucannon in last year's class, who went in the first-round and played most of his snaps in linebacker territory.

Ole Miss JUCO QB signee Chad Kelly took a plea deal to a non-criminal charge of disorderly conduct after being arrested in mid-December.

Kelly agreed to 50 hours of community service. Kelly was initially charged with resisting arrest, menacing and several other counts following an altercation with a bouncer and police. Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze said he would talk with Kelly and his family soon to discuss the quarterback's future with the rebels.

Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson picked off his 10th interception of the year in Wednesday's 42-3 Peach Bowl loss to TCU.

Golson showed the Rebel offense how to advance the ball on the return, picking up 36 yards. The senior enjoyed a stellar final season of eligibility, finishing second in the nation in interceptions. Even so, doubts persist about his potential due to his frame. "At just 5-9, 180 pounds, the Jim Thorpe Award finalist could lack the length to be a true corner at the next level,"'s Chase Goodbread recently wrote. "Is he better suited for a nickelback role, where his straight-line speed won't be tested as much?" CBS Sports' Dane Brugler adds that Golson's "lack of height and length will push him down draft boards."

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 10-of-23 passes for 109 yards and three interceptions in Wednesday's 42-3 loss to TCU.

In his final collegiate game, Bad Bo kidnapped Dr. Bo for the last time and gave the performance of his lifetime. Bad Bo provided viewers with a potluck of everything they had come to love about him over the past few years: There was the 1.2 QBR rating (not a typo), a pick-6 thrown from his own end zone that didn't cross the goal line and didn't require a return (not a typo), the botched snap leading to no points when Ole Miss finally cracked TCU's 10-yard line in the third quarter (not a typo), and Hugh Freeze's refusal to yank Wallace at halftime even though the signal-caller was visibly as rattled as you'll ever see a collegiate player (you know that's not a typo). It was a fun three-year ride on Wallace's Jekyll-and-Hyde Express, though Rebel fans are no doubt thrilled the train has pulled into the station at long last.

During the broadcast, ESPN's sideline reporter stated Ole Miss sophomore LT Laremy Tunsil fractured his fibula against TCU.

Tunsil's injury immediately looked bad, and his leg was put in an air cast before being carted off. He is not draft-eligible, but Tunsil is one of the top left tackles in the country when healthy. However, he has already dealt with a few injuries.
