2016 NFL Draft Results: Laremy Tunsil Falls to Dolphins At No. 13 After Controversy

Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil was the No. 1 pick in most 2016 NFL mock drafts before the Tennessee Titans traded the top selection to the Los Angeles Rams earlier this month.

Before the Round 1 of the NFL Draft began Thursday night, a photo of Tunsil smoking a bong while wearing a mask surfaced on his Twitter page before being deleted a few minutes later. As a result, Tunsil slid all the way to No. 13, where the Miami Dolphins took him.

Tunsil fills a huge need for the Dolphins, who had to improve their offensive line after giving up way too many sacks of quarterback Ryan Tannehill last season.

If Tunsil is able to stay out of trouble off the field, he could be a steal for the Dolphins because he’s an excellent pass and run blocker.
