    Ole Miss Season Recaps

    Ole Miss 2011

    There hasn't been enough credit given to the Ole Miss defensive line this season, but these guys formed one of the nastiest lines in the country.

    Jarrell Powe (95 rating) DT (1st team All-American)
    Kentrell Lockett (88 rating) DE (1st Team All-American)
    Scott Lawson (87) DT
    Gerald Rivers (85) DE (2nd Team All-American)

    Rivers is a redshirt sophomore and made it on the 2nd Team All-American team, but the rest are seniors so we'll be rebuilding across the line.

    Behind them we have these starting seniors departing

    Johnathon Cornell (85) MLB
    Johnny Brown (85) SS
    Allen Walker (83) OLB
    Fon Ingram (81) FS
    Jeremy McGee (81)

    Key pieces that are returning are the aforementioned with two other all-americans.

    Gerald Rivers (85) DE

    Marcus Temple (84) CB who won the Jim Thorpe award for the best DB in the country this season and a first team all-american, but he's a junior and might want to leave while his stock is high.

    Joel Knight (84) OLB will only be a junior, but he led the country in tackles with 106 of them and 89 of them solo. He also finished in fifth place for the Bednarik award and he made the first team all-american team.

    The rest of our defensive players are currently rated between 75-80, but those three pieces will be big.

    On the flip side the offense is going to be powerful.

    Brandon Bolden (91) will be a senior, but we're projecting him to leave after he won the Doak Walker and Walter Camp awards, but even if he does we have Enrique Davis (88) who we redshirted this year to create some separation between him and Bolden. Davis brings 87 speed and 96 acceleration which should feel like a Ferrari after using Bolden's 89 speed and 76 acceleration all year.

    Our offensive line welcomes back all five starters
    Rishaw Johnson (88) C
    Bobby Massey (87) RT
    Bradley Sowell (85) LT
    Logan Clair (84) RG
    Alex Washington (82) LG

    Taking the ball from center will be Raymond Cotton (84) who had a descent year throwing for 2134 yards with 14TD's and 12INT's, but his 52% accuracy will need to be improved next year. For some reason it only shows him running for 266 yards this year, but that I believe that subtracted the yardage from the 18 times he was sacked this year. He was utilized a lot more in the last half of the season and should double his yardage on the ground next year with a new offense being implemented.

    From the WR corps we lose Markeith Summers (85) who accounted for 22 receptions and 417 yards this year - 3 TD's, Lionel Breaux who had 23 receptions for 463 yards and 3 TD's, but also had 19 carries for 215 yards and 3 TD's. Their senior leadership will be missed, and they were our most productive WR's this season, but we're excited for some of the youth we have on the roster.

    Going to be tough to replace 8 defensive starters and two all-americans on the defensive line, but the key will be whether or not Temple returns. If he stays we'll have three pre-season AA's on defense, but we don't have anything comparable on our secondary depth chart.
