Tracking the Ole Miss prospects during the 2016 NFL Draft

The first round was, um, interesting. After a quiet Day 2, prospects like Cody Core and Fahn Cooper hope to hear their names called on Saturday.

Here we go, y'all. Three years after Robert Nkemdiche, Laremy Tunsil and Laquon Treadwell faxed in their LOIs to begin an unprecedented turnaround in Oxford, Ole Miss' Big Three steps boldly into Chicago's Roosevelt University Auditorium to accept their professional football destiny.

I know that five-star guys are, ya know, supposed to perform like five-star guys, but the way that these dudes not only lived up to, but surpassed ridiculous expectations is pretty incredible. All three arrived in Oxford as the top-rated players at their position and, were it not for a certain fall from a certain window in Atlanta, all three would have a chance to be the first player at their position off the board on Thursday night. (And don't forget, Tony Conner might be in this conversation if not for a meniscus tear.)

But those aren't the only guys to keep an eye on this weekend. Fahn Cooper, Cody Core, C.J. Johnson and Trae Elston all have real shots to hear their names called over the weekend.

We'll be updating results as they happen here in this post, and don't forget to follow along with us on Twitter. Hop into the conversation down in the comments and let's make this an open thread.
