MIAMI, Florida — Tackle Laremy Tunsil’s surprising slide in the NFL draft has ended with the 13th pick, where he was taken by the Miami Dolphins.
Tunsil was once considered a potential No. 1 overall pick, but he fell Thursday after a bizarre video was posted on his Twitter account minutes before the start of the draft showed a person smoking from a mask equipped with a bong.
The approximately 30-second video was quickly deleted, and the entire Twitter account was deactivated about 30 minutes later. But the video added to the perception that Tunsil has off-the-field problems.
Tunsil sat out the 2015 season’s first seven games after the NCAA ruled he received improper benefits, including the use of three loaner cars over a six-month period.
