An NFC scout was surprised with Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly's underthrows against Alabama.

"This was my first time seeing Chad Kelly in person. For supposedly having such a strong arm, he sure did have his share of underthrows," the scout said. This was Lance Zierlein's take on that: "Kelly has the ability to put plenty of zip on most of his short to intermediate throws, but was plagued by some deep-ball shots that came up a little short against Alabama. While there are different ways to view and evaluate arm strength, my guess is that this scout will see enough arm when he gets in-depth with tape study of Kelly."

Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in the school's 45-14 win over Georgia.

Engram is built for the NFL game. We aren't going to call him Jordan Reed, but he can win in the same areas of the field. Engram's nine-yard touchdown in this game displayed his ability to elevate and win against a dropping defender. While Engram might not be a traditional tight end, he is producing at the position at the collegiate level, which is difficult to find. We are excited to see his athletic testing numbers during the draft process.

Ole Miss redshirt senior Chad Kelly completed 18 of 24 attempts for 282 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 45-14 win over Georgia.

Kelly added another 41-yard rushing touchdown, Ole Miss' final score of the game. This was an absolute beatdown, and the good Chad Kelly showing up was a major reason why. Ole Miss will have a height and physical advantage on the outside over every opponent, and Kelly tends to take advantage with lobs, back shoulder fades and throws with positioning advantages. Kelly seems to be a momentum passer; if things click early, Ole Miss' offense can be difficult to slow down.

NFL.com's Chad Reuter reports that NFL scouts "haven't been impressed" with [Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly's] decision-making."

On Saturday against Alabama, Kelly held onto the ball near his own goal line for too long, resulting in a strip-sack fumble and Alabama touchdown early in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, a backpedaling pass was deflected, intercepted and taken 75-yards for a touchdown by Alabama defensive end Jonathan Allen. "The loss wasn't all on Kelly, but, to his credit, he was accountable for his miscues," Reuter wrote. "Kelly has a great arm and plenty of toughness, but he'll be sliding down draft boards if he can't make the right calls for his team, especially in big moments."

Ole Miss freshman DE Charles Wiley's charge of misdemeanor domestic violence has been dismissed.

Per Steve Farese, Wiley's attorney, "The parties mutually agreed to dismiss the charges and handle this matter privately." The defensive lineman was initially arrested near the end of July. The Clarion-Ledger's Antonio Morales is reporting that the 6-foot-3, 235-pound freshman will be eligible to play moving forward. ESPN 300 ranked Wiley as the No. 252 overall prospect for the 2016 cycle.

Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram caught nine passes for 138 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 48-43 loss to Alabama.

Engram led the Rebs in both receptions and yardage, averaging a nice 15.3 yards per catch. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder has been ultra-productive through three games and has caught 20 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns for the season as a whole.

Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly completed 26-of-41 passes for 421 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 48-43 loss to Alabama.

Ole Miss looked dead in the water after Kelly was picked off by Jonathan Allen with 5:44 remaining in the game. Allen returned that one for a touchdown to give the Crimson Tide a 48-30 lead. The Rebs would come roaring back with a pair of touchdown passes from Kelly to draw to within 48-43, but they were unable to secure the needed defensive stop to give the ball back to Swag in the final minutes. For the season, the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder has thrown for 953 yards with a 10/4 TD/INT ratio.

Ole Miss senior DT D.J. Jones predicted that the Rebels will beat Alabama on Saturday.

Jones was asked by Campus Rush's Lindsay Schnell about the recruiting boost that came with beating Alabama each of the past two seasons and the 6-foot-1, 315-pounder couldn't resist taking a little jab, saying, "After we beat them for the third time, people are gonna be thinking, "Man, if I go to 'Bama, I'm gonna have to play and lose to Ole Miss every year."" Sometimes it is best not to poke the bear, young man, but your confidence is admired nonetheless. Through two games, Jones -- the No. 3 JUCO prospect for 2015 -- has recorded eight tackles.

Prior to the season, an NFL executive told NFL.com that Ole Miss redshirt sophomore WR Damore'ea Stringfellow would be the biggest breakout prospect in 2016.

"He has a great blend of size, speed and length," the exec said. "He had some really impressive flashes on tape last year. He will blow up this season." Stringfellow has eight catches for 81 yards and a score so far.

Ole Miss freshman WR D.K. Metcalf broke his foot in Saturday's win over Wofford.

Per HC Hugh Freeze, Metcalf will likely take a redshirt for this season. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder caught a pair of touchdowns in the season-opening loss to Florida State and had logged one catch for 10 yards prior to breaking his hoof on Saturday. He ranked as ESPN 300's No. 242 overall prospect for the 2016 cycle.
Sep 12 - 1:00 PM

Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly completed 20-of-27 passes for 219 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 38-13 win over Wofford.

Kelly threw a trio of interceptions against Florida State on Monday, but he had no such turnover issues during Saturday's blowout win over Wofford. All three of the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder's touchdown passes came in the first half. This is all just a warm-up for Kelly, who will try to hit Goliath with the slingshot once more in next Saturday's huge game against Alabama.

Ole Miss junior CB Ken Webster will miss the remainder of the season due to a left knee injury.

Webster started every game in 2015 and was viewed as the team's top corner, so obviously this is a big hit to the defense. The injury occurred early in the game, and FSU later went on a consecutive scoring possession tear. Webster will likely be able to claim a medical redshirt.

Ole Miss redshirt freshman RB Eric Swinney will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

Swinney can't catch a break. The top-notch prep recruit missed last season with a stress fracture in his right foot. With junior Jordan Wilkins suspended for the year due an academics issue, Swinney was expected to play a key role behind Akeem Judd. Instead, another lost year. Judd will now likely be spelled by Eugene Brazley.
Sep 6 - 8:18 PM

Ole Miss redshirt freshman RB Eric Swinney was forced out of Monday's loss to FSU due to a knee injury.

Swinney suffered a left knee injury in the second quarter of Monday's primetime showdown and was forced out after just the one carry. HC Hugh Freeze said that he is still waiting on the results of medical tests for the 5-foot-9, 210-pounder, so just how long he remains out of action -- and if a return this season is even possible -- remains uncertain. He ranked as Rivals' No. 115 overall prospect for 2015 and was expected to see his fair share of carries behind Akeem Judd and Jordan Wilkins this coming season.

Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram caught nine passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in Monday's loss to FSU.

While a variety of pieces in Ole Miss' reworked receiving corps had their moments on Monday, Engram was the team's most effective weapon. And it wasn't even really close. His nine catches led the team (Damore'ea Stringfellow was second with three catches), as did his 121 receiving yards (A.J. Browne was second with 48 yards). The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Engram had the chance to jump for the draft over the winter, but opted to return for his senior year in the hopes of boosting his stock. So far, so good on that front. Last season, he caught 38 passes for 464 yards.
