Ole Miss Rebels Game Notes
Ole Miss junior WR Elijah Moore has declared for the 2021 NFL Draft. Thanks to WRs DK Metcalf and AJ Brown, and even TE Dawson Knox to a less extent, Ole Miss is seen as a bit of a pass-catcher factory now. Moore is prepared to live up to that reputation sooner rather than later. A 5-foot-9, 184-pound junior who could have stayed another year if he wanted, Moore is aiming to find a way into the top-100 picks this spring. Though not the biggest WR out there, Moore shows impressive strength and physicality for someone his size. Moore also shows some good (albeit not elite) top end speed and can snap off explosive plays if defenses give him some space. Outside wide receiver may be a pipe dream for Moore in the NFL, but he should make for a tough, explosive Day 2 slot WR.
LSU Tigers Game Notes
LSU sophomore RB Tyrion Davis-Price will not play Saturday against Ole Miss. Davis-Price (6'1/232) rushed eight times for 55 yards last week in a 37-34 victory over Florida before exiting the contest. He has been a steady presence in LSU's three man committee backfield, posting two 100-yard games while recording 446 yards, a 4.3 YPC and three touchdowns on the year. Chris Curry will likely handle the majority of carries if John Emery Jr., who is listed as questionable, cannot suit up. LSU wraps up their season this Saturday against Ole Miss.
