Ole Miss WR Derrick Jones recently changed positions and looks promising as a WR.

Ole Miss WR Derrick Jones

Ole Miss junior Derrick Jones is making the switch from defensive back to wide receiver in 2015, and by all accounts, he's done an incredible job adjusting to his new position so far. In fact, in a recent post on ESPN, Edward Aschoff called him the "sleeper" to watch on the Rebels. That apparently has Jones excited.

Jones found the article and posted it to Instagram, along with a note about how blessed he is to be a part of Ole Miss' program. It's a reminder that many players do read everything written about them online.

Laquon Treadwell, who will be returning from a horrific injury suffered last year, is expected to be the team's No. 1 receiver. Could Jones be lined up on the other side?
