Mississippi received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 LB Breon Dixon.

Bobby Petrino might have just missed out on this one. Said Dixon, "When I was looking into it I really feel like Louisville had that edge over them, but when they hired Coach McGriff [as defensive coordinator] that changed. He’s like a father figure and he really looks out for his players and he has a plan for me." The 6-foot, 216-pounder is also intrigued by the offensive talent on the team and believes the Rebs have the pieces for a strong run over the next few years. Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack calls Dixon a "nice fit" for Ole Miss. Wommack's outlet ranks him as the No. 19 outside linebacking prospect in the 2017 cycle.

An NFL executive believes that Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly "could be a value pick with some upside."

NFL Media asked multiple NFL executives which quarterback could jump out in the later rounds as 2017's version of Dak Prescott. Kelly is currently rehabbing a knee injury and in December, ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. forwarded the belief that the Rebel signal-caller had dropped into Day 3 territory. Positive medical checks would help his stock, but just how much he will be able to participate in the draft process is not yet known. He has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl, but he won't be playing in that contest.

Ole Miss hired LSU special teams coordinator/linebackers coach Bradley Dale Peveto to serve in the same capacity.

Peveto has extensive experience as an assistant in the SEC, having coached on the LSU sideline for the past three seasons and previously holding positions with Kentucky and Arkansas (plus another, earlier stint with the Tigers). In a statement, Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said, "At LSU, he coached some of the nation’s best in those areas and won a national championship. He has also proven to be one of the best recruiters in the country, and we could not be more excited to welcome him to Ole Miss."

An NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram reminds him of former Saints WR Marques Colston.

Position crossover comp! "Engram’s more of a true big receiver like Marques Colston," the scout said. "He’ll never be a point-of-attack guy but he does have outstanding receiving potential and skills." The 6-foot-3, 227-pounder is already in the midst of beginning his draft prep, as Ole Miss was not bowl-eligible at the end of the season. He posted a breakout campaign in 2016, catching 65 passes for 926 yards and eight touchdowns.

Ole Miss WR Quincy Adeboyejo accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Adeboyejo never topped 610 receiving yards in a season, but he played with big time targets like Laquon Treadwell and Evan Engram. Adeboyejo's former teammate Cody Core was able to find playing time in his rookie year with the Bengals after attending the Shrine Game.

Ole Miss junior edge rusher Marquis Haynes will return for his final season of collegiate eligibility.

Haynes has made a living for himself lounging around opposition backfields during his three years in a Rebels uniform. Looks like he will hone his craft one more season under HC Hugh Freeze before taking the plunge into NFL-temperatured waters. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder has recorded 11 tackles for loss and seven sacks this season. For his career as a whole, he has logged 36.5 stops for loss and 24.5 sacks. Over the summer, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. forwarded the opinion that added bulk would help Haynes against larger offensive lineman who are not so susceptible to his quickness.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Ole Miss will hire Sam Houston State OC Phil Longo to serve in the same capacity.

Longo will replace recently fired OC Dan Werner. While he might not be a household name at this juncture, he has done fantastic work guiding the Sam Houston State offense over the past three seasons. The Bearkats' 7,975 total yards in 2015 currently stand as the third-most ever posted at the FCS level. With the Rebs, Longo will be tasked with helping to develop super-recruit Shea Patterson as the young gunslinger heads into his sophomore season.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Ole Miss will hire Auburn co-DC Wesley McGriff as defensive coordinator.

Rebels DC Dave Wommack opted for retirement at the end of the 2016 season. It looks like they will be sniping one of Gus Malzahn's boys to fill the vacancy. McGriff was hired by Auburn last January to serve as co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach. He had been with the NFL's Saints the three years prior to hooking up with Auburn. This will be McGriff's second stint with Ole Miss. He also served on staff in 2012 and 2013.

ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. says Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly (knee) has dropped into Day 3 territory.

Kelly's season-ending knee injury didn't help his draft status. "I think when you look at Chad Kelly right now, in a year like this you could have him anywhere between the seventh-highest rated quarterback or the 12th," Kiper said. "Had he stayed healthy, I think he would have been solidly one of the top-10 quarterbacks. Right now I have a Day-3 grade on him." Kelly was Kiper's No. 1 senior quarterback prospect earlier this season. He threw for 2,758 yards and 19 touchdowns in nine games before the torn AC and lateral meniscus.

Ole Miss fired co-OC Dan Werner.

"These are always very difficult decisions, but at this time, I believe it is best for our program to have a fresh approach," said HC Hugh Freeze in a released statement. Werner had served faithfully as Ole Miss co-offensive coordinator in each of Freeze's five seasons guiding the Rebel ship. In addition to their termination of Werner, Mississippi also opted to cut ties with recruiting assistant Barney Farrar. Farrar had been placed on administrative leave in November.

Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly (knee) accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Unfortunately, Kelly will be a bystander, unable to participate in practices or play in the game due to a torn ACL and lateral meniscus. The silver lining is that he can rub elbows with evaluators. Across nine games this year, Kelly threw for 2,758 yards and 19 touchdowns. Fully healthy last season, he threw for 4,042 yards.

Ole Miss redshirt junior WR Damore'ea Stringfellow has declared for the 2017 NFL Draft.

"I cannot begin to express to Rebel Nation what an honor and privilege these last three years have been putting on the Ole Miss jersey each Saturday," Stringfellow said. In 12 games this season, the 6-foot-3, 229-pounder recorded a 46-716-6 receiving line. He wraps his Rebs career having caught 102 passes for 1,478 yards and 12 scores. In October, an anonymous NFL evaluator noted that Stringfellow possesses "deceptive speed" and a natural physicality.

Ole Miss senior DB Carlos Davis was arrested early Sunday and charged with disorderly conduct.

This was hours after the school's loss to Mississippi State, Davis' final game with Ole Miss since the Rebels are not bowl eligible. Ole Miss did not comment on the incident.

Ole Miss freshman QB Shea Patterson completed 27-of-48 passes for 320 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 55-20 loss to Mississippi State.

The season might have turned differently had Chad Kelly not suffered a season-ending knee injury in early November. As is, that injury was sustained, Patterson's redshirt was burned and the Rebels finished the season on a 2-5 tailspin to drop out of bowl contention. But, positivity. Patterson has thrown six touchdown passes in his first three collegiate starts. Two of those contests saw him throw for 300-plus yards. It has been a tough second-half for the Rebs, but the future has at least one shining light in the form of Patterson. That light could well be blinding should Patterson reach his ceiling.

Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram (undisclosed) is not dressed in advance of Saturday's Egg Bowl showdown with Mississippi State.

The exact nature and circumstance of Engram's injury is not known. He has played in every game this season and just posted a 6-102-1 receiving line in last weekend's loss to Vanderbilt. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound senior leads all FBS tight ends with his 926 yards receiving. Eight of his 65 catches have gone for touchdowns.
