Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 23-of-28 attempts for 316 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 56-15 win against Louisiana Lafayette.

Wallace had a rough opener in which he threw three interceptions against Boise State (TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline said he was "mortified by the performance), but since then he's been great. All three of those picks came in the first half, so Wallace has now put together five consecutive strong halves. To get drafted, he'll have to keep that up.

Mississippi senior CB Senquez Golson had two interceptions in Saturday's 56-15 blowout win against Louisiana Lafayette.

The Rebels ensured Ragin' Cajun star Terrance Broadway would have a long afternoon, picking him off three times. With a little less than 10 minutes left, Golson plucked a Broadway pass out of the air and raced 59 yards for a touchdown. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Golson, who has 4.43 speed, now has three interceptions on the year. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote last month that Golson "possesses natural cover skills." The corner also played outfield for the Ole Miss baseball team in 2012 and was an 8th round pick of the Red Sox in the 2011 MLB draft.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 23-of-30 attempts for 320 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-3 demolition of Vanderbilt.

Much, much better performance from Wallace than his three interception-day against Boise State last week. To be fair, all three picks were in the first half against the Broncos, meaning he's played six consecutive strong quarters after starting with a pair of dreadful ones. In fact, Ole Miss scored on seven of its first eight possessions this afternoon. Wallace gave way to backup Ryan Buchanan after the game became a laugher.

NFL scouts are "raving" about Ole Miss sophomore OT Laremy Tunsil, reports NFL.com.

"A player to keep a close eye on, they say, as we head to the 2016 draft, when Tunsil will first be eligible," wrote NFL.com's team of draft experts headed by Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Gil Brandt and Charles Davis. The quartet concluded: "Ole Miss lists Tunsil at 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds. Pretty good size. He's got exceptional pass-blocking skills; he allowed just one sack all last season when as a true freshman he earned All-SEC second-team honors. And he just turned 20 on Aug. 20. If you want a true gauge of his worth, watch last year's Egg Bowl and the difference in the Rebels' offense before and after he left the game with a knee injury. It was striking." Tunsil is a former five-star recruit.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace's play "mortified" TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline in 2013.

As you may have guessed, the expert grades Wallace as an undrafted free agent. "Mortified is the best way to describe how I felt after watching Bo Wallace last season," Pauline wrote. "Off the 2012 film Wallace showed the makings of potential middle round prospect but his game fell off the cliff last year." Wallace entered his senior season ranked second in Ole Miss history in total offense with 7,085 yards and second in passing with 6,340 yards. He completed 25-of-36 attempts for 387 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions in Thursday's 35-13 win versus Boise State. All three picks occurred in the first half. He doesn't look like an NFL prospect at the moment, but that could change.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline says "nothing really jumps off the film" about Mississippi senior S Cody Prewitt.

Pauline prefaced his discussion of Rebels' prospects by pointing towards a brighter future. "The strength of the ‘Ole Miss prospects lie with their true sophomores and starting in 2016 the program will impact the NFL Draft," the analyst wrote. "Until then the NFL talent is thin." Prewitt, who has never missed a collegiate game, earned All-American honors last year after leading the SEC with six interceptions. He added 71 tackles and two forced fumbles. "Prewitt is a solid safety with next level size/speed but does nothing that really jumps off the film," Pauline wrote, giving him a Round 7 grade.

Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell caught seven passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the school's 35-13 win over Boise State.

Treadwell reportedly added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason and it showed in his game. Bo Wallace frequently allowed Treadwell to get downfield against man coverage, lob it up and allow his receiver to win at the catch point. He is not draft eligible, but Treadwell is a name to watch on a talented Ole Miss team.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 25 of 36 attempts for 387 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions, in the school's 35-13 opening win versus Boise State.

Wallace had a rough start, throwing three interceptions in the first half of play. The Ole Miss prospect failed to look off defenders, locking on his targets, while not following through on his progressions. For about 2 1/2 quarters the Rebels' offense struggled to separate from Boise State, but put together consecutive scoring drives in the fourth quarter to pull away with a victory. Moving forward, Wallace will need to improve his play if he plans to impress evaluators.

Mississippi announced Jeremy Liggins has been moved to tight end.

The JUCO transfer practiced as a quarterback this spring in the hopes he could be a Wildcat point man. Because he's 6-foot-3, 296 pounds, that would have been a fun experiment indeed. Unfortunately, it's now over, and Liggins will play tight end. "Jeremy is overwhelmed a bit with learning what he has," coach Hugh Freeze said. "I just did not want to add on to that." Instead, 6-foot-1, 212-pound defensive back Anthony Alford will be the Wildcat QB. Bo Wallace, of course, is the Rebels' starter.

Mississippi senior CB Senquez Golson "possesses natural cover skills," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Golson has enough agility and speed to intrigue scouts," Rang wrote. The corner also played outfield for the Ole Miss baseball team in 2012 and was an 8th round pick of the Red Sox in the 2011 MLB draft. "Golson's size is an obvious detriment but he possesses natural cover skills due to his athleticism and has recorded six interceptions in his 36 career game appearances," Rang wrote. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Golson has 4.43 speed.

Mississippi redshirt senior ILB Deterrian Shackleford is a 'tweener who "lacks the size to remain at defensive end and isn't fast enough to handle coverage responsibilities at linebacker," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Shackleford is entering his sixth year of eligibility after missing the 2011 and 2012 seasons with separate ACL surgeries. He collected 44 tackles, including 7.5 for loss and two sacks in his return last year. "Shackleford has 'tweener traits as he lacks the size to remain at defensive end and isn't fast enough to handle coverage responsibilities at linebacker," Rang wrote. "He's physical, alert and a fiery leader, however, and played his best football down the stretch last season."

Mississippi senior S Cody Prewitt "looks the part of an NFL safety, sporting a well-built frame with long limbs," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Prewitt earned All-American honors last year after leading the conference with six interceptions. He added 71 tackles and two forced fumbles. Prewitt is also a durable prospect who has never missed a collegiate game. "He is an alert, active defender with good vision and the athleticism to handle deep coverage responsibilities," Rang wrote. "He changes directions fluidly and is a smooth accelerator. He possesses good (but not great) top-end speed and can get himself in trouble with aggressive pursuit lines that leave him little room for error. Prewitt generally is asked to play two-deep or the single high free safety role, rarely dropping down close to the line of scrimmage to cover slot receivers. From this center-field vantage point, Prewitt shows good understanding of route concepts, anticipating where the ball is going and getting a jump on it. He has good hands for the interception and times his leap to take the ball at its highest point."

Ole Miss freshman WR Sammie Epps was arrested on Friday night on charges of driving without a license and possession of marijuana inside a motor vehicle, according to the Clarion Ledger.

The former four-star TE recruit out of Greenwood High School, was released from jail that morning after posting bond and resumed practice at Ole Miss on Monday. The 6-foot-5, 215 pound Epps, was originally slated to play tight end, but has now been moved to wide receiver and will play in the slot.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes that Ole Miss senior LB Serderius Bryant's "size likely keeps him from being drafted, but he's an aggressive and speedy defender with a history of making the splashy play."

Despite starting in seven games, The 5-foot-9, 215 pound Bryant led the Rebels with 78 tackles, including 12.5 for loss and three forced fumbles last season. In February, Bryant and fellow linebacker, Denzel Nkimdiche were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, being drunk in public and disturbing the peace.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that Ole Miss junior S Trae Elston "attacks downfield in the running game, popping off the screen due to his closing speed."

The Rebels' prospect played in every game last season with 11 starts at Rover, and finished fourth on the team with 62 tackles and third with six passes defended. Rang notes that Elston's "hard-hitting" and "extremely aggressive" style of play provides quite the complement to Prewitt in the Rebels' secondary.
