The Flagship: 2025 NFL Draft could be coronation for Ole Miss football

OMSpirit’s Jake Thompson got The Flagship fired up the other day. So did the Associated Press’ Ralph Russo. Ole Miss football could be having a lot of fun this time next year after the 2025 NFL Draft.

The Associated Press’ Ralph Russo released his 2025 NFL mock draft on Sunday, placing a Rebel as a potential Top 10 pick. Defensive end Walter Nolen is already seeing his chance to make a lot of money on Sundays, starting in 2025, and Russo projected the Texas A&M transfer as the seventh overall pick to the Minnesota Vikings.

Russo created his first round draft order based off Bet MGM’s projected NFL win totals.

CBS Sports projected Princely Umanmielen as the 11th overall pick to the Seattle Seahawks, using Caesars Sportbook’s Super Bowl 59 odds for the draft order.

On this episode of “The Flagship”, presented by College Corner, David Brandt and I debate which Rebels could go early in next year’s draft.

Recievers Tre Harris and Jordan Watkins opted to return for a final season in Oxford and did so quickly. Both would have been considered strong candidates in this year draft cycle but now have the chance to bolster that potential.

Pro Football Focus released its first round mock draft for next year and has Harris going as the 30th overall pick to the Baltimore Ravens. The order was based off next year’s Super Bowl odds.

Only two Ole Miss players projected but it is, of course, just still April 2024 and there is so much to take place between now and April 24, 2025.

Quarterback Jaxson Dart has the chance to earn his way into a first round pick and join his teammates. Currently Georgia’s Carson Beck seems to be trending as the potential top overall pick.
