7. Chad Kelly to Laquon Treadwell – Ole Miss Rebels

Laquon Treadwell was on pace to have 69 receptions for 913 yards and seven touchdowns when he suffered an ugly leg injury in the loss to Auburn on the goal line. He’ll be 10 months removed from the injury when the Ole Miss Rebels begin their season and his recovery has gone so well that he told in April that he’s stronger after the injury.

A stronger Treadwell is an intriguing prospect considering he actually dropped from 230 pounds to 219 so he could so the 6-3 receiver could be even faster too. He was the nation’s No. 1 wide receiver recruit three years and in what could be his last year at Ole Miss, look for Treadwell to rank among the nation’s receptions leaders and have 1,000-plus yards and double-digit touchdowns.

Chad Kelly likely takes over at quarterback for Bo Wallace over Ryan Buchanan after transferring in from junior college after beginning his career at Clemson. The former four-star recruit and nephew of Jim Kelly enters a system that should suit him well and having a security blanket like Treadwell should make for a smooth transition, if not an upgrade from Wallace.
