Earlier tonight, former Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, widely considered one of the very top prospects in the NFL Draft, had a video posted to his Twitter account that showed Tunsil smoking from a gasmask bong. The tweet was quickly deleted, but the damage was done. Tunsil, whose character had already been repeatedly questioned leading up to the draft, fell to the Miami Dolphins at No. 13.
Of course, this controversy has been the talk of the draft. Props to NFL Network's Deion Sanders, who, in his interview with Tunsil after the Dolphins' pick was announced, addressed the "elephant in the room" directly. Tunsil said his account was hacked, but would not attribute the hacking to his step-father, who is suing Tunsil. More details on this bizarre situation are sure to come out in the days following the draft.
