Five runs in the fifth inning were all No. 8 Ole Miss needed to complete the midweek sweep over UAB. The Rebels (17-1) increased their winning streak to 12 games with the 5-1 win over the Blazers (6-11) Wednesday afternoon at Regions Field.

For the second straight day, a freshman dazzled as the Rebels’ starting pitcher. James McArthur (2-0) allowed just one run on five hits to pick up his second victory in as many starts. The tall right-hander also struck out five and did not surrender a walk for the third consecutive outing.

“We needed that today,” said head coach Mike Bianco regarding McArthur’s quality start. “With these last two starts, James seems to feel more comfortable out there. He’s looked more like he did in the fall, really commanding the game.”

Rebel relievers continued to impress with effective outings out of the bullpen. Freshman Connor Green tossed a pair of scoreless innings before classmate Andrew Lowe finished the game, pitching the final two frames without allowing a run. The Ole Miss bullpen has now surrendered just one earned run over the past 10 games (35.0 innings).

Ole Miss drew nine walks throughout the ballgame, including six in the five-run fifth inning. Seven different Rebels recorded one hit apiece.

History Lesson: Ranking the SEC’s No. 1 overall NFL Draft Picks

The 2016 NFL Draft is right around the corner and the Tennessee Titans are on the clock. There’s a chance – some say a real good chance – that the Titans will select Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil with the first pick when April 28 rolls around. If so, he’ll join a long list of SEC players who have been selected first overall.

Since the NFL drafted started in 1936, there have been 17 SEC players that have gone No. 1. Many of them have been great, most notably the Manning brothers, Peyton from Tennessee and Eli from Ole Miss.

Others have been dismal flops, like LSU’s JaMarcus Russell and Kentucky’s Tim Couch.

Some were drafted first overall but never played for the teams that drafted them. They still went on to great pro careers, players like Auburn’s Bo Jackson and LSU’s Billy Cannon.

So who’s been the best pros of the bunch? Here are our rankings of the SEC’s 17 first-overall picks, in order by the successes they’ve had in the professional ranks:

Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell has meeting set up with Cowboys

Treadwell warmupLaquon Treadwell will give the Dallas Cowboys something to think about in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The talented wide receiver out of Ole Miss is scheduled to meet with the Dallas Cowboys ahead of the draft in April. Treadwell has a visit set up with a number other clubs in the NFL, too. Treadwell was asked about taking the handful of visits after March 28, Ole Miss’ pro day.

“I take it very seriously. I take everything at this point like this is my job and treat everything I do like it’s my job,” Treadwell said, via NFL.com. “I treat everybody with respect because you never know what everybody else can do for you or what doors might open up for you. I’m excited about it all and it’s nothing anybody in my family has experienced so it will be fun.”

Treadwell is rated as the top wide receiver in the draft and projected to go in the first round, per CBS Sports. While the Cowboys own the No. 4 overall pick in the draft, Treadwell is not likely to go that high. The Cowboys could always trade down to select him a little bit later or they could see if he falls to the early second round (highly unlikely). The Cowboys could also trade up in the draft from the No. 34 overall pick.

Drafting a player at wide receiver with Treadwell’s talents will give the Cowboys a deadly 1-2 combo with him and Dez Bryantfor years to come. This would make the transition from Tony Romo to the next Cowboys quarterback considerably easier for the franchise.
