Mississippi sophomore TE Evan Engram had five receptions for 65 yards in Saturday's loss to Arkansas.

Mississippi has leaned on the second-year player more with star WR Laquon Treadwell lost for the season with a broken leg. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound sophomore needs to add bulk, but he's a tool shed of a prospect. Last month, ESPN's Steve Muench compared Engram to former Gator and current Redskins TE Jordan Reed: "He has soft hands, he catches away from his frame, and he doesn't have to break stride to bring it in. He also has the speed to make plays down the seam and enough agility to produce after the catch."

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 16-of-31 passes for 235 yards and two interceptions.

Wallace was a big part of the end of Ole Miss' playoff hopes. He missed two series with an ankle injury and wasn't particularly effective when he was part of the play. His worst play of the game came on a lofted pass to the end zone that was picked off for a 100-yard interception return TD. A scout recently said that Wallace had a tendency of "burning down cities" by constantly trying to force plays that aren't there. This game won't do much to reassure the evaluating community.

Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson named a Nagurski Trophy Finalist.

Bronko Nagurski Trophy honors the national defensive player of the year in college football. The 5-foot-9, 176-pound Golson is ranked second nationally and first in the SEC with nine interceptions this year. Golson also has 29 tackles, two for a loss, with seven pass breakups and two quarterback hurries on his 2014 resume.

An NFC director of scouting told NFL.com that Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace was "burning [cities] down," rather than saving them.

The scouting director's exact quote was that Bo Wallace "is one of those types of quarterbacks who is always trying to save the city but he's actually burning it down." Evocative imagery that we think is pretty on the nose. Wallace is at his best when he plays within his own ability, something that he doesn't do all the time. NFL.com's drat analyst team of Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Charles Davis and Lance Zierlein noted that "many evaluators view Wallace as falling in the "arrogant" category," rather than merely having a competitive confidence.

According to the Associated Press, Mississippi AD Ross Bjork is working on an extension for HC Hugh Freeze.

We're relatively certain that somebody will coach Florida next season, though it remains to be seen who that mystery man will be. Mississippi is just one of many schools that has tried to squash any and all rumors about their head coach leaving for the Gator job. Mississippi appears to be close to an actual extension with their man, though, making his non-Florida-bolt slightly more concrete. Said Bjork, "Coach knows how we feel about him. We love that he loves being here and his family is comfortable. We'll take the next couple weeks to iron out the details and by all accounts we'll have a new deal for him when the season's over." The Rebels are 8-2 under Freeze this season.

Mississippi senior S Cody Prewitt has accepted his invitation to the Senior Bowl.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Prewitt is ranked fourth on the Rebels defense with 50 total stops on the year. The Rebels prospect has 3.5 tackles for a loss with two interceptions, a pass breakup and a forced fumble and recovery on his 2014 resume.

Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson has accepted his invitation to the Senior Bowl.

The 5-foot-9, 176-pound Golson is ranked second nationally and first in the SEC with nine interceptions this year. Golson also has 29 tackles, two for a loss, with seven pass breakups and two quarterback hurries on his 2014 resume.

An AFC scout told NFL.com that Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson "is going to be a good nickel at the next level."

Golson's nine interceptions are second in the nation only to Louisville sophomore Gerod Holliman's 13 picks. "[Golson] lacks the size to hold up on the outside, but he's got great instincts and ball skills" said the scout. The corner is listed at 5-foot-9, 176 pounds. NFL.com analysts Bucky Brooks, Charles Davis and Daniel Jeremiah like the fact that Golson has played big in important games, such as when he sealed the Rebels' win over Alabama with an interception.

Ole Miss QB Bo Wallace completed 11 of 15 attempts for 140 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the school's 48-0 win over Presbyterian.

These numbers were in part time work against an inferior opponent, and Wallace added a rushing touchdown. Ole Miss has faced a number of injuries in recent weeks on the offensive side of the ball, namely Laquon Treadwell's season ending one and left tackle Laremy Tunsil missing some time. Wallace has played well, but when one part of the offense fades, he seems to fade along with it.
Nov 8 - 3:00 PM

Ole Miss sophomore OT Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) might be able to return before the end of the season, according to beat writer Hugh Kellenberger.

Kellenberger tweeted "Hopeful that Laremy Tunsil can be back for the home stretch with time off." Tunsil injured his shoulder in Saturday's shootout against Auburn. Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said that Tunsil felt like "he didn't have any power during warm-ups." Mississippi wraps up their schedule with a home game against Presbyterian and what is sure to be a critical road tilt against Arkansas. ESPN's Steve Muench noted that Tunsil has a quick first step and the core strength to drive back defenders.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline believes that Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson "could surprise on draft day, moving into the middle rounds" of the draft.

"He touches the tape right around 5-feet, 9-inches but offers terrific ball skills and the instincts to match. Golson could surprise on draft day, moving into the middle rounds then seeing extensive action in nickel packages as a rookie in the NFL," Pauline writes. The Rebels'four year starter had his nation-leading ninth interception of the year in the Rebels loss to Auburn on Saturday. Pauline notes that Golson entered "the season with late round grades," but his stock is on the rise after picking off 9 passes and breaking up another 5 this season.

Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell is facing a four month rehab from a left leg injury, meaning he could be back for spring practice.

Head coach Hugh Freeze updated the media on Monday. Treadwell's injury was gruesome and the result of the play greatly impacted the outcome, but it is good news if he can participate in any way during spring activities. Treadwell might be the most talented receiver in college football.
Nov 3 - 1:58 PM

Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson had his nation-leading ninth interception of the year in a loss on Saturday to Auburn.

In the fourth quarter, Golson nearly had his tenth pick, tipping a Nick Marshall pass. If Golson had come down with it, he might have raced untouched for a touchdown. According to ESPN, Golson is the third player in the last 15 seasons with at least nine picks in the first nine games of a season. ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote last week that Golson "is a top-10 CB for me right now in the 2015 draft class."
Nov 2 - 5:09 PM

Mississippi sophomore TE Evan Engram had eight receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss to Auburn.

It was the best game of Engram's young career. More targets are probably in his future with star WR Laquon Treadwell lost for the season with a broken leg. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound sophomore needs to add some bulk to his frame, but there's all sorts of talent here. Last month, ESPN's Steve Muench compared Engram to former Gator and current Redskins TE Jordan Reed: "He has soft hands, he catches away from his frame, and he doesn't have to break stride to bring it in. He also has the speed to make plays down the seam and enough agility to produce after the catch."

Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell was carted off with a left leg injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against Auburn.

It was a gruesome injury. Treadwell was fighting to get into the endzone, and his left ankle and leg got caught underneath an Auburn defender. He then went on to fumble the game winning score just before crossing the goal line. Treadwell might be the top receiver in the entire country, and it appears he will not be back on the field until next season.
