Dolphins snag Tunsil, who fell (in draft) after bong vid
This afternoon, the Miami Dolphins probably didn't think they'd have a chance to select a projected first overall pick, since, you know, they were drafting at No. 13.
But it all worked out.
The Dolphins drafted Ole Miss offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil hours after a video was posted on his Twitter account in which he takes a bong hit from a gas mask (or some combination of the two things).
Tunsil said after the selection that his account was hacked and that the video was years old.
"I'm going to show everyone the kind of person I am," he told NFL Network's Deion Sanders. "I'm a great person."
Anyway, he stands at 6-5, 310 pounds. Via CBS Sports, he was "born to play left tackle in NFL, winning with quickness, balance and power. Durability, however, is a concern." Here's the full analysis.
