Ole Miss Preseason Position Group MVPs
Quarterback | Chad Kelly
There is no debate here. Senior QB Chad Kelly is a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate who threw for 4,042 yards and 31 TDs last season and added 500 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. He might just be the best college quarterback in America.
Running Back | Akeem Judd & Jordan Wilkins
There was just no way we could break the tie between these two. Judd rushed for 421 yards and three TDs in 2015, while Wilkins added 379 and four scores. Both appeared to be bigger, faster and stronger this spring and should give the Rebels a new dynamic to their offense with larger backs as the primary weapons. Judd is tipping the scales at 228. Wilkins weighs 215.
