The 2017 NFL Draft is here. Where will Chad Kelly end up? Given the damage done to his stock by off-field issues, a torn ACL and recent wrist surgery, it’s safe to say he won’t come off the board in the first couple of days. Without an invite to the NFL Combine and only a brief, injury-shortened window to throw during the Ole Miss pro day, the polarizing QB hasn’t had much of a chance to show his stuff to pro scouts since his senior season ended in November.
Swag’s chances in the draft, which begins Thursday night with the first round, headline this episode of Podcast Rebellion, but he’s not the only former Rebel hoping to hear his name called this weekend. Is Evan Engram a legitimate first-rounder? Will D.J. Jones’ lack of height scare teams away? Will people look past Damore’ea Stringfellow’s off-field issues? Will there be a surprise draftee or two?
We also talk a little Ole Miss baseball and whether or not this team can navigate a brutal final month of the regular season and work its way into the NCAA tournament field. The final stretch starts this weekend on the road against No. 15 Arkansas.
