Ole Miss redshirt junior LB Denzel Nkemdiche returned to the football team following his spring suspension.

"He's back with us now," said coach Hugh Freeze on the final day of SEC media days Thursday. Nkemdiche was suspended in February after he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace. "He's doing everything right ... since the issue that we had," Freeze said. "The plan I put in place, he's done everything I've asked him to do. It includes a one-game suspension, and hopefully that's the extent of it and he's back with us ready to go."

Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell added 15 lbs of muscle during the offseason.

This would put Treadwell around 6'2/230 lbs, which is massive for a receiver. Many draft evaluators would place Treadwell near the top of their rankings if he were eligible for the 2015 draft. Ole Miss is seemingly on the incline as a program, and Treadwell could be the focal point of their offense this season.

When discussing Ole Miss sophomore DL Robert Nkemdiche, senior DE CJ Johnson said "I ain't never seen anybody 295 lbs with abs like he's 125 lbs."

Nkemdiche had previously been listed around 297 lbs, but he could be a much leaner and stronger player this year. The former top recruit has lined up on the edge, but because of his strength to work through opponents, Nkemdiche's future could be as a disruptor on the inside.

Ole Miss redshirt junior CB Chief Brown will miss the 2014 season after tearing his ACL in offseason workouts.

"Very sad," Rebels coach Hugh Freeze said. Brown was slated to be Mississippi's nickel back and Tony Conner's primary backup in 2014. He started three games last year and collected 38 tackles (19 solo), a fumble recovery and an interception. This is a tough break for a team that will face several elite receivers during the 2014 campaign.

Bengals signed Ole Miss RB Jeff Scott over the weekend.

The diminutive 5-foot-7, 167-pound back works well in space and contributed in the receiving game in college. That description is why some believed Scott could turn him into another Dexter McCluster, but it didn't happen. Scott has experience as a return man, and he's probably going to have to win a roster spot using that route.

Colts selected Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief with the No. 90 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Moncrief (6-foot-2, 221) will be a 21-year-old rookie after becoming a day-one starter at Ole Miss as an 18-year-old true freshman. He finished his three-year career with 156 catches for 2,371 yards (15.2 YPR) and 20 touchdowns. Moncrief proceeded to shred the Combine, running 4.4-flat with a 39 1/2-inch vertical and highly explosive 11-foot broad jump. While he has physical traits of a Type-A No. 1 wideout, Moncrief is still learning to play to his size and has a tendency to body catch. He offers big long-term upside in the vertical game, but may need a year or two to get his NFL bearings. He'll have to compete with LaVon Brazill and Griff Whalen for a spot behind the top four receivers in Indy. The Colts are loaded at wideout for 2014.

ESPN's Todd McShay says Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief is "one of the most impressive workout freaks that you've ever seen at the wide receiver position."

Moncrief entered the 2013 campaign as a probable first-round pick, but a down year and a ridiculous WR class has kicked him down the board a bit. "Moncrief did not play all that well this past year," McShay added. "But if you're a metrics guy, he's the first pick of the draft." That's because the 6-foot-2, 221-pounder, whom NFL Films' Greg Cosell has compared to Josh Gordon, runs a 4.40-second forty. Moncrief is ticketed for Day 2.

Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief will work out for the Broncos.

Moncrief is a great size/speed prospect who has been lost in the shuffle a bit in a super deep WR class. He goes 6-foot-2, 221 pounds, and runs a 4.40-second forty. "Moncrief might be a possibility for the Broncos’ No. 31 pick in the first round," notes the Denver Post. "He is expected to be gone by the team’s No. 63 overall selection in the second round."

Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief will work out for the Broncos and the Dolphins, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Moncrief is a big body (6'2/221 lbs) and timed fast (4.40 forty), although his final season at Ole Miss was not good. Sure he was stuck to the sideline too often, but he did not fight at the catch point on a consistent basis. Teams could take a stab at him in the early third-round.
Apr 11 - 11:57 AM

Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief visited the Steelers on Tuesday.

Moncrief had a down 2013, which can partially be attributed to poor quarterback play, but Moncrief did not help himself in contested situations. The Ole Miss receiver surprised with outstanding workout numbers, posting a 4.40 forty at 6'2/221 lbs, as well as a 39 1/2" vertical.

A video on YouTube depicted Ole Miss junior LB Denzel Nkemdiche directing a profanity-laced tirade toward a group of rival fans.

The video has since been deleted, but the damage might have already been done. Nkemdiche's one-game suspension -- due to an arrest in February for disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct and failure to comply with a police officer -- is in jeopardy of expanding. "I’m not happy with him, not proud of it, hope he’s not. It’s definitely not what we want to be about and the way you want to handle (a situation) regardless of what initiated it or caused it," Rebels coach Hugh Freeze said. "There’s a way to handle adversity and controversy, and it’s certainly not that, and that’s been made clear to him."

Denzel and Robert Nkemdiche have filed a counter-suit seeking $2 million against a man who sued and accused them of beating him up.

"Nkemdiche would state and show that he suffered and sustained harm, injuries, damages, and/or losses as a result of the false and defamatory statements made by plaintiff/counter-defendant Matthew Baird and that, therefore, Nkemdiche is entitled to a judgement against (Baird) for compensatory damages in an amount to be determined by the jury," the lawsuit reads. Denzel Nkemdiche was suspended for the school's 2014 opener against Boise State, while Robert hasn't been disciplined by the program.

Ole Miss junior LB Denzel Nkemdiche has been suspended for the school's 2014 opener against Boise State.

Nkemdiche was arrested in February for disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct and failure to comply with a police officer. The older brother of top recruit, Robert, will not be allowed to participate in spring practice, which began Tuesday. "... I hope (Nkemdiche) can really learn from mistakes that have been made and get back to being who he can be. He's a good kid," head coach Hugh Freeze said.

Ole Miss sophomore DL Robert Nkemdiche and senior LB Denzel Nkemdiche have been sued for $2 million after allegedly beating a man at a frat party last year.

Plaintiff Matthew Baird claims that Denzel Nkemdiche punched him without warning from behind. While unconscious, according to Baird, he was stomped by Robert and five other unnamed people. "When this alleged incident occurred, the proper authorities investigated the matter and could find no evidence of wrong-doing related to Denzel and Robert Nkemdiche or any other members of our football program," said Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork. "This is a personal matter for them and we will support Denzel and Robert while they defend themselves in this civil case." Denzel Nkemdiche is already serving an indefinite suspension stemming from his arrest this past Saturday at his 21st birthday party. He was charged with disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct and failure to comply with a police officer.

Ole Miss senior LB Serderius Bryant was arrested on Saturday and cited for public intoxication and disturbing the peace.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze suspended Bryant and fellow LB Denzel Nkemdiche -- who was also arrested on Saturday in a separate incident -- indefinitely. Bryant broke out in a big way for the Rebels last season, leading the team with 78 tackles, including 12.5 for a loss.
