Ole Miss football 2021 preview: Jerrion Ealy doesn’t need to exclusively be a running back. And that’s okay!

A lot of attention was on Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral this week at SEC Media Days. And for good reason. The Rebels signal caller is the reigning national leader in yards per game at just under 390.

But, Lane Kiffin and Jeff Lebby’s offense’s best player may not even be the quarterback. No disrespect to No. 2 under center, but junior running back Jerrion Ealy may be even more valuable. The third-team All-American and second-team All-SEC performer a year ago gives Ole Miss a ton of options offensively for how they want to attack people in 2021.
