Big guy TD

Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche is an athletic freak.

The latest proof: During Saturday's season opener against Tennessee-Martin, the Rebels put Nkemdiche in on offense at the fullback position and the 296-pound beast turned a short dump-off into a 31-yard touchdown.

Nkemdiche doesn’t even look like a defensive tackle when running with the football; he fits right in as a speedy offensive playmaker.

The 31-yard score wasn’t Nkemdiche’s only highlight from the first half. He also blocked a field goal with 3:52 left in the second quarter.

Nkemdiche is proving himself to be one of the most unique talents in the country, and that has to scare the rest of the SEC.
