NFL Films senior producer Greg Cosell told The Mighty 1090 AM (in San Diego) that if Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil is available at the third pick, "you have to take [him]."
Said Cosell, "Since I've started doing college [evaluations], 10-12 years, [Tunsil]'s as good an offensive tackle prospect as I've seen come out." The NFL Films veteran sees the 6-foot-5, 305-pounder as a "way better prospect" than previous offensive line draftees Greg Robinson, Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews. "If he's there at three, my card would be up in about a second," Cosell told the San Diego radio show. Should the Titans draft Ohio State DE Joey Bosa with the first pick, the Browns could well select a quarterback, leaving Tunsil there for Cosell's scenario to play out. Last week, NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein predicted that he could be a Top-3 tackle at the NFL level within three years. Feb 8 - 7:05 PM

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein said that Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil, "is going to be the best left tackle in the league, or one of the top two, within three years."

Said Zierlein on the The Pick Is In podcast, "He's got the good arm length, that certainly helps, but what I love about him is that he came in as a five-star prospect and played at that level from the very moment he came into the SEC." He went on to say that he believes the 6-foot-5, 305-pounder's upside is the highest he's seen since former Trojan tackle Tyron Smith, who was drafted by the Cowboys with the ninth pick in the 2011 draft. "With Tunsil," Zierlein said, "he's got all that athleticism, but he's a three-year starter in a major conference who has played left tackle the entire time and has some of the cleanest technique you're going to find at the position."

In his most recent mock draft, ESPN analyst Todd McShay argued that the Titans should select Ohio State DE Joey Bosa rather than Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil.

McShay wrote, "Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil would fill the team's biggest need," then added "but the move is to pull the trigger on Bosa, the best player in the class." It's understandable logic, but probably a sight more tricky if you're in the Titans' war room. Last season, Tennessee allowed 54 sacks, most in the NFL. QB Marcus Mariota's not going to do them a ton of good if he's broken in half. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Tunsil is probably the safer pick for that reason, even with Bosa's prestigious talent out there for the taking.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks noted that Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil is "a polished technician with quick feet and exceptional body control."

No surprise there, as many (including fellow NFL Media writer Lance Zierlein) view Tunsil not just as the No. 1 offensive line prospect in the 2016 pool, but as the best player, period, regardless of position. Brooks calls the 6-foot-5, 305-pound anchor a ""plug and play" blocker capable of stepping into the starting line up from Day 1" while Zierlein wrote in January that his "feet, technique and instincts could make him an all-pro and one of the top pass protectors in the NFL." If he's not a Top-5 selection in the draft, that would be a story.

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil No. 1 overall in the draft class.

Zierlein is highly respected for his work evaluating offensive lineman, so his endorsement of Tunsil is promising. "From a talent and technique standpoint, Tunsil is easily cleanest offensive lineman in the 2016 draft and might be the cleanest prospect period," he wrote. "Tunsil showed signs of rust against Texas A&M in his first game back from a seven game suspension, and he still kept Myles Garrett in check. Tunsil lacks pure power, but has the body control to be a quality run blocker in space and on levels. Ultimately, his feet, technique and instincts could make him an all-p­ro and one of the top pass protectors in the NFL." The analyst compares Tunsil to Tyron Smith.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes that Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil "should quickly emerge as one of the top players at his position [after entering the NFL]."

Tunsil checks in at No. 1 in Jeremiah's breakdown of the Top-50 collegiate prospects. He's high on the 6-foot-5, 305-pound left tackle. And then some. Wrote the draft analyst, "He has ideal height, bulk and length for the left tackle position. In the passing game, he is explosive out of his stance and plays with excellent bend and balance. He has a sharp, powerful punch and he is quick to re-work his hands if he loses inside position." Indeed, Jeremiah's only real criticism is that Tunsil "doesn't generate a lot of movement at the point of attack." Rotoworld's Josh Norris slotted him to the Titans with the first selection in his first mock draft. The need's there, at least, as the team will theoretically attempt to keep QB Marcus Mariota alive and well next season.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil as the No. 7 overall draft prospect.

"Most games Tunsil shows you everything you want. Balance, functional strength, posture, length, hands, nastiness, etc.," Norris wrote. "he game against Auburn might have been his most challenging, but Carl Lawson plays like a future first round pick." Tunsil went No. 1 to the Titans in Norris' first 2016 mock draft, though the analyst doesn't necessarily think Tennessee is locked into drafting an offensive lineman despite the obvious need.

Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil went No. 1 to the Titans in Josh Norris' first 2016 mock draft.

Norris doesn't necessarily think Tennessee needs to go in this direction. He argues that since pass rushers are deployed from all over the place and in different alignments -- instead of just lining up across from the left tackle each time -- the importance of LTs has been mitigated while the value of the other four linemen has increased. Since Tennessee's interior line is awful, it would make sense to add a guard, but you aren't going to do that with the No. 1 pick. Norris doesn't project trade downs, so he simply slotted the Titans an offensive line prospect most assume they'll be most attracted to.

Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil will forego his final season of eligibility and enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

ESPN's Joe Schad was among the first on this story and it's since been confirmed by Tunsil in a school press release. This isn't a huge surprise, as Tunsil's in the conversation to be the No. 1 overall selection, likely battling it out with Ohio State's Joey Bosa unless the Titans opt to think outside the consensus box. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound junior would fit well with the Titans, too, as Marcus Mariota's tendency to scamper around on Game Day brings with it a natural health concern. Shoring up the offensive line would help keep him clean. An anonymous scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in mid-December that the big man is a "little bit of a finesse guy. True or no, such minor nitpicks are not going to prevent him from being selected with one of the top picks.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes the Tennessee Titans' priority No. 1 "should be to protect Marcus Mariota," and has them selecting Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil with top pick in the draft.

"Tunsil is arguably the most-talented player in this year's draft class and able to contribute from Day 1, pushing Taylor Lewan over to right tackle," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound junior is widely viewed as one of the top tackles in College Football. If the Titans are serious about protecting their investment in QB Marcus Mariota, Tunsil, would make a great option.

An NFL scout questioned Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil's physicality.

"Tunsil is a good athlete with strong hands," said the scout. "Little bit of a finesse guy. They (Ole Miss) are almost like the Oregon teams now. They're really not physical players." That may be so, but teams looking for a pass blocking savant at left tackle are salivating over Tunsil. He's seen by many as the No. 1 OL in the class.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil will likely enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

To be clear, Tunsil's draft entry isn't set in stone. Rather, Pauline wrote that "from what [he's been] told," Tunsil will enter the draft along with fellow Rebels Robert Nkemdiche (DL) and LaQuon Treadwell (WR). Earlier in December, CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang noted that scouts are comparing Tunsil to the Eagles' Jason Peters. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound junior's widely viewed as one of the top offensive line talents in the country.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil "has scouts comparing him to Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro Jason Peters."

"Tunsil was suspended for the first seven games of the season by the NCAA for multiple rules violations that include accepting improper benefits. Since he has returned, he has shut down first-round-caliber pass rushers in Texas A&M's Myles Garrett and Auburn's Carl Lawson," Rang writes. The Ole Miss prospect showcases a great blend of size, strength and agility, and is ranked by many as the No. 1 OL in this years' draft class.

Per PFF's metrics, Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil incredibly posted the highest game Saturday against Texas A&M and DE Myles Garrett than he had in any 2014 game.

PFF gave Tunsil a +4.8 grade for his work against projected 2017 first-rounder Myles Garrett and company. Tunsil was so dominant in his return from suspension that only a second quarter holding call can really be counted as a blemish. HC Hugh Freeze formulated a game plan that helped the offensive line from Texas A&M's pass rush, calling for a series of Chad Kelly screens or quick strikes. Where PFF really lauded Tunsil was in the running game, where he consistently bulldozed the defender in front of him. According to the website, only 10 OTs have posted higher grades against a Power 5 school this year (and merely two came against an SEC team).
