Tuesday morning update | Ole Miss Sports

Later today I will begin a blog position breakdown post spring-training to see where the Rebels stand at various spots heading into August.

The depth chart will remain in place unless something off-the-field happens in the summer to change things.

Baseball is at home against Southern Miss tonight at 6:30. The Rebels will take another RPI hit if they do not win. Players say the Sunday win against South Carolina was a confidence booster. Could it be the springboard to something big? We’ll see. No. 8 LSU visits this weekend.

Brad Locke and I will be talking Ole Miss and MSU on the radio this afternoon, WAJS-FM (92.1) and WAQB-FM (90.9) at 5 p.m.

In the meantime …

The NFL draft begins Thursday in prime time. Gainesville columnist Pat Dooley thinks the best draft spot for Tim Tebow would be last or next to last in the first round – Indianapolis or New Orleans.

Locally, The National Football Post doesn’t expect Dexter McCluster to slip past the second round. His “flip the field” ability makes McCluster special, the Post says.
