Ole Miss’ pro day is in the books, and now, the attention turns back to the practice field, where the Rebels are looking to wrap up the spring on a strong note. As for the guys who went through pro day, they have one month left before the day they’ve been waiting for finally arrives. There should be plenty of drama down the stretch.
Here are four things to know:
- Ole Miss’ pro day not only saw the Rebels’ potential first-round draft picks show NFL scouts what they can do, but it was also an opportunity for some other players to turn heads. Here are the winners and losers from Monday.
- Aside from the attention surrounding Ole Miss regarding the 2016 NFL draft, there’s also the looming NCAA investigation facing Freeze and his program. The ball is in the Rebels’ court right now, as they prepare their responses to the NCAA’s accusations. Nevertheless, Freeze is ready to close the book on the investigation.
- If spring practice, pro day and an NCAA investigation weren’t enough to fill Freeze’s day, he also has the never-ending world of recruiting to worry about. This weekend, Ole Miss is set to host a legacy who just happens to be one of the top quarterbacks in the country.
- It’s not often that you see graduate transfers go from one SEC West school to another, but that’s what happened Tuesday, as Ole Miss officially had a player announce his transfer to Alabama.
