Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Wallace's size and ability to attack defenses with both his arm and legs is intriguing. Plays with good awareness and is a better athlete than he looks, frequently stepping up, laterally or escaping the pocket entirely. He is far from a speedster but has vision and will take free yardage when the defense gives it to him.

Good accuracy and enough velocity to zip in-cutting routes. Anticipates his receivers' breaks well and usually places the ball where only his receivers can get it.

WEAKNESSES: Like many college quarterbacks, his production was enhanced by a scheme that often allowed him to make pre-snap reads and throw simple screens, etc. out of shotgun formations. Average arm strength and a bit of wind-up make long throws outside of the hashes a concern when projecting to the NFL.

Doesn't always step into his throws, which can leave his passes fluttering. He too frequently challenges defenders, staring down his targets, which manifested to an SEC-leading 17 interceptions in 2012.

--Rob Rang (8/28/14)

Player Overview

Though he signed with Ole Miss just two years ago after a sterling JUCO career at East Mississippi, Wallace enters his senior campaign as the SEC's elder statesman at quarterback with 26 career starts. He has completed 64.3 percent of his passes during that time for a combined 6.340 yards and 40 touchdowns against 27 interceptions, while running for another 745 yards and 14 scores.

Wallace signed with Arkansas State out of high school but redshirted in 2010 before transferring to East Mississippi Community College, where he guided the Lions to an undefeated season, including the NJCAA championship while earning national Offensive Player of the Year honors.

Though he threw nearly as many interceptions (17) as touchdowns (22) his first season in Oxford, Wallace showed moxie and toughness, battling through a separated shoulder that required off-season clavicle surgery and kept him out of spring practice last year. Healthy this spring, Wallace is expected to make strides despite losing playmaking wideout Donte Moncrief to the NFL.

11/11/2014 - Shortly after a pair of heartbreaking losses that tarnished a 7-0 start and a No. 3 ranking in the poll, Mississippi head coach Hugh Freeze made a promise to himself and his Rebels. "I promised to stay the course and not be discouraged," Freeze said. "So, I'm happy to have eight wins and be sitting where we are. It's a happy locker room today." Ole Miss (8-2, 4-2 SEC West) appeared to be emotionally healthy in a 48-0 win over Presbyterian College on Saturday. The Rebels ran up 640 yards of total offense, highlighted by Bo Wallace, who threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, exclusively in the first half.

Wallace was 11 for 15 for 140 yards, including scoring strikes of 66 and 23 yards to Vince Sanders and ran for a 9-yard score. Jordan Wilkins and Mark Dodson rushed for 171 and 128 yards, respectively, accounting for three touchdowns. "The two that jumped out to everyone were Jordan Wilkins and Mark Dodson," Freeze said. "Their downhill run was very impressive today. I'm impressed with what we saw, for sure." Dodson scored on first half runs of 65 and 62 yards. In the second half, Wilkins scored on a 73-yard run and DeVante Kincade threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Derrick Jones. "I felt like we played really well," Wallace said. "I think we got everything accomplished that we wanted to get accomplished." - AP Sports
