Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell caught five passes for 42 yards in Saturday's 38-10 loss to Florida.

Treadwell led Ole Miss in both receptions (five) and receiving yardage (42 yards) in Saturday's loss to Florida, a sign of just how thoroughly the Gators dominated the contest. The 6-foot-2, 229-pound junior has caught just one touchdown pass in five games. His talent certainly remains, but outside of last week's 135-yard performance against Vanderbilt, he's turned a quiet season. The aforementioned 135 yards versus the Commodores represents the only game this season in which he's surpassed the 100-yard receiving plateau.

Ole Miss redshirt junior QB Chad Kelly completed 26-of-40 passes for 259 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 38-10 loss to Florida.

Kelly didn't throw his touchdown until late in the fourth quarter. After helping to stun Alabama two weeks ago, the 6-foot-1, 210-pound redshirt junior has struggled in back-to-back games, throwing two interceptions against Vanderbilt last week and following it up with Saturday's quiet effort against Florida. The Rebels host New Mexico State next weekend. It will be interesting to see if Kelly can pull himself out of the miniature rut he's been operating from as of late.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline calls Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell "a game controlling pass catcher that will out finesse or out muscle defenders for the reception."

On Saturday, Treadwell finds himself in a juicy matchup versus Florida's Vernon Hargreaves III. After a slow opener we pawned off as kicking off injury rust, Treadwell has gone for 73, 80 and 135 yards in the Rebels' last three games. "He natural, fluid but also physical and will be a top ten selection if not medically red-flagged," Pauline wrote.

Mississippi WR Cody Core is averaging almost 23 yards per catch.

Unlike his more-heralded teammates, Core was not a four- or five-star recruit. In fact, he was mostly ignored by big schools during the recruitment process. Ole Miss coaches found a diamond. Core has 14 catches for 320 yards and three touchdowns in four games. "Though Core made a contribution to the Rebels' offense last season, Alabama found out two weeks ago that he's ready to be a big-time playmaker," wrote's Chad Reuter. "With Chad Kelly throwing darts to Core and stud receiver Laquon Treadwell, this could be a very special season for Ole Miss."

Despite not having played this season, ESPN's Todd McShay still ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No. 5 overall prospect.

It's a big show of confidence for the suspended (NCAA investigation into impermissible benefits) tackle who fractured his fibula in last year's bowl game. "When he's on the field, Tunsil has great range as a run-blocker," McShay wrote. "The junior projects best in a zone-blocking-heavy scheme because of his mobility." The Rebels are not banking on Tunsil returning this season.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell will be matched up across from Florida's Vernon Hargreaves III on Saturday.

Treadwell started out a bit slowly this fall but his production has ramped up week by week. He had 44 receiving yards in the opener and then logged 73, 80 and 135 yards in the Rebels' last three games. "These matchups don't always materialize as you would hope," warned ESPN's Mel Kiper of the Hargreaves showcase. "Florida could show a lot of zone. Ole Miss could move Treadwell around to limit the matchup. The Rebels could use some bunch formations to make this less of a one-on-one. Still, you have the potential for two top-10 talents going head-to-head, and it'll play a big role in whether the Rebels are able to consistently move the ball through the air."

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell caught eight passes for 135 yards in Saturday's 27-16 win over Vanderbilt.

Treadwell failed to reach the end zone, but consistently picked up nice chunks of yardage in averaging 16.9 YPC. While he's only scored one touchdown this season, his numbers are trending in the right direction. He opened the year with 44 receiving yards and has subsequent logged 73, 80 and 135 yards in the Rebels' last three games. Last weekend, the 6-foot-2, 229-pound junior was compared to former Oklahoma State standout and current Cowboy Dez Bryant by ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit. Those in DFS formats shouldn't give up on Treadwell even though he's started somewhat slowly this season. The numbers are coming along and we like him to start stringing together some big efforts as the season rolls along. Ole Miss hits the road to face Florida next week.

Ole Miss senior RB Jaylen Walton rushed for 133 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-16 win over Vanderbilt.

Walton wouldn't score until the fourth quarter, but his four-yard touchdown was a big one, as it essentially iced any hope of a Vandy comeback. This was the 5-foot-8, 172-pound senior's first 100-yard rushing game this season.
Sep 27 - 1:03 AM

Ole Miss redshirt junior QB Chad Kelly completed 24-of-42 passes for 321 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Saturday's 27-16 win over Vanderbilt.

A week after Kelly lit the college football world on fire by leading the Rebels to a 43-37 win over Alabama, he somewhat predictably came back to earth against Vanderbilt. The Commodore defense notched a pair of interceptions and kept Kelly in check despite his 321 passing yards. Two interceptions aside, the 6-foot-1, 210-pound redshirt junior has now passed for at least 300 yards in each of his last three contests and holds a 10/3 TD/INT ratio through four games. Ole Miss heads to Gainesville to tango with the Gators next weekend.

Mississippi WR Cody Core is "very much a next level receiver," despite playing in Laquon Treadwell's shadow, comments TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The analyst reported that Core was drawing late-round grades from scouts heading into the season. Core's stock is on the rise after a tremendous start to the season. "Core is faster than Treadwell and displayed speed on Saturday [against Alabama], averaging just under 31 yards on four receptions, one which went 73 yards for a score," Pauline wrote. "He comes with big play ability, better than average size and in the end Core could surprise on draft day."

ESPN color analyst Kirk Herbstreit compared Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell to Dez Bryant during Saturday's game against Alabama.

Treadwell hasn't produced for DFS player thus far -- posting 14 catches, 197 yards and one touchdown -- but the NFL isn't concerned about that. "Long, athletic and great ball skills," wrote CSN Philly's Paul Hudrick. "Hard to imagine the Eagles going receiver early in the draft for the third straight year, but Treadwell is an elite talent."

Ole Miss OC Dan Werner said that he "couldn't be anymore pleased now" with redshirt junior QB Chad Kelly.

"He knows where to go with [the ball], when to check down, when to take the shots. He just sort of has an aura about him," said Werner. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound redshirt junior's thrown for 901 yards with a stellar 9/1 TD/INT ratio through three games. He's completing 64.4% of his passes. Werner's also been pleased with Kelly off the field (the quarterback was dismissed from the Clemson program for disciplinary reasons in 2014). "He understands that this is his chance to show people what he can do. So far, he’s done that." On Saturday, the Rebels host a Vanderbilt team allowing just 153.33 yards passing in what should be an interesting potential letdown spot following the team's huge win over Alabama.

Against Alabama on Saturday, Ole Miss junior DL Robert Nkemdiche "showed why NFL evaluators covet his scheme-versatility and complete game as a disruptive force who can make splash plays but also eat up blocks."

The 6-foot-4, 296-pounder had only one TFL and no sacks combined against UT-Martin and Fresno State (though he was ridiculously disruptive anyway) before posting 6 tackles with a shared sack versus the Crimson Tide. "He has the strength to hold the point of attack, the quickness to blow by blockers and make plays in the backfield and the lateral quickness and open-field speed to run down the play," Kiper wrote. "He's a top-five talent and anyone who stayed awake for Bama-Ole Miss is up to speed."

Ole Miss will be without Mississippi junior S Tony Conner for "about four weeks with meniscus tear/surgery," according to Mississippi head coach Hugh Freeze.

Right now, the Rebels are looking at losing one of their top defensive play makers for a minimum of four games. That would mean Conner could miss games versus Vanderbilt, Florida, New Mexico State, and Memphis.
Sep 21 - 3:32 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Ole Miss junior DL Robert Nkemdiche's "versatility" would be valued by the Jacksonville Jaguars, and mocks him to the Jaguars with the No. 4 selection.

"The Jaguars' coaching staff and front office value versatility on the defensive line and Nkemdiche offers just that with his athletic ability to line up inside as a three technique or outside at end. He isn't yet a polished product, but his potential is enticing," Brugler writes. The 6-foot-4, 296-pound Nkemdiche led the Rebels with 6 tackles and 1/2 a sack in their big win over the Crimson Tide this weekend.
