Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil was arrested for hitting his stepfather but claims it was in self defense, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Tunsil was reportedly protecting his mother, and the two have pressed charges against the stepfather. "He could have handled it differently, but am proud of him for standing up for his mother and protecting his family," head coach Hugh Freeze said. Tunsil is widely regarded as one of the top offensive linemen in the country and missed the final game of the season with a fractured fibula.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein ranked Ole Miss junior Laremy Tunsil ahead of Notre Dame redshirt junior Ronnie Stanley in his preseason T rankings.

"Of all the tackles I studied for this list (and over the past several years), Tunsil is easily one of the cleanest and most impressive" Zierlein writes. The difference between the two seems to come from run blocking success, as Zierlein thinks Stanley "doesn't always brings his feet" to sustain his assignment. The rest of the top five includes Texas A&M's Germain Ifedi, Ohio State's Taylor Decker and USC's Zach Banner.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No. 2 tackle in the nation.

"Injuries have plagued Tunsil throughout his career, but he's delivered on his potential as one of the five-star members of the Rebels' heralded recruiting class of 2013," Brown wrote. "He's been an All-SEC pick each of his first two years, and at 6-foot-5, 305 pounds, he possesses elite quickness and athleticism for the position. You won't find many smoother athletes playing tackle." The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Tunsil is recovering from a fractured fibula and dislocated ankle suffered in the Peach Bowl. That injury may have hampered his preparation for this coming season, so keep an eye on him early.

ESPN's David Ching believes that Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil is the "safe pick" for best offensive lineman in the SEC.

"I don't think we've seen Tunsil's best yet, despite his having started almost immediately upon arrival in Oxford -- a rarity among SEC left tackles. He has been an All-SEC selection in each of his two seasons as a Rebel, but I believe he will establish himself as a legitimate superstar blocker this season," Ching wrote. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Tunsil, while super talented, is also recovering from a fractured fibula and dislocated ankle from last season. If he regains full health in 2015, Tunsil should start where he left off from last season and could make a run to be a top-five selection in 2016.

The Sports Quotient ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No. 2 offensive lineman in the country.

"At his best, Tunsil has short, quick footsteps that help him stay in front of defenders as well as active hands which help combat opposing rush moves," the site noted. "Right now, the biggest question mark concerning Tunsil is his health. Should he enter 2015 at full strength, however, he will be the best player on what could be the country’s best offensive line." Tunsil fractured his fibula in the bowl game but should be recovered for the start of the season. "He’s great at handling pressure on the edge and is great at protecting the run. Tunsil’s biggest strengths are his quickness, footwork and physical strength," SQ concluded. "If Ole Miss wants to build off its success from last season, it will need a healthy Tunsil to continue to play like one of the best, if not the best, offensive tackles in the country."

Walter Football ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No. 1 tackle in the class.

"Tunsil has a ton of natural talent to be a blind-side protector," WF noted. "He was very good in 2014 and was arguably the best left tackle in the nation on occasion. Tunsil is very athletic with natural bending. He could use some hand-placement development, but he has a skill set for the NFL." The site calls Tunsil a sure top-25 pick. "Not only does Tunsil match up well with speed rushers, but he gets movement in the ground game," it noted. Tunsil fractured his fibula in the school's bowl game but is expected to be recovered for the start of the season.

Proving his health by not missing a game in 2015 is crucial for his draft stock.

NFL Media ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No.2 returning offensive player for 2015.

"The two-year anchor of the Rebels' offensive line might be the best pass protector in the country. In 2013, he was one of just two true freshmen in the entire NCAA to be a full-time starter at left tackle, and allowed only one sack all season," wrote Chase Goodbread. The Mississippi prospect fractured his fibula back in December, during the Rebel's bowl loss to TCU. With a healthy 2015 season, he has a chance to go in the top half of the first round in 2016.

Scout.com ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No. 4 overall prospect.

"[Tunsil is] a massive tackle (6-5/305) with great length and athleticism out on the tackle island," wrote Jamie Newberg. "Tunsil's strength is his ability to pass protect, using his feet and reach to keep pass rushers at bay. He has good agility, bends well and knows how to effectively uses his hands. Tunsil has been a starter since day one and has only given up two sacks in two seasons in the rugged SEC." Fox Sports' Kevin Causey believes Tunsil is a possibility to go No. 1 overall and ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks him as the No. 2 overall prospect.

Fox Sports' Kevin Causey sees Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as a possibility to go No. 1 overall next year.

"In 2013, the Kansas City Chiefs opted to go with offensive lineman Eric Fisher as the first pick," Causey wrote. "Depending on which team has the first pick in 2016, Laremy Tunsil might make a lot of sense. As a sophomore, he was arguably the best left tackle in the Nation. As a junior, he should only get better." Tunsil fractured his fibula in the bowl loss to TCU in December and is making his way back now. If he proves his health, he's a surefire top-15 prospect.

ESPN's Mel Kiper has Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil slotted as his No.2 overall prospect, and believes Tunsil "has all the traits you look for in a top left tackle prospect."

"He will be coming back from fracture fibula suffered in the Peach Bowl, but Tunsil is still just a true junior with two sparkling seasons of play against top competition, all following a highly celebrated prep career. A nimble but powerful left tackle prospect, he has all the traits you look for in a top left tackle prospect," Kiper wrote. The Rebels prospect fractured his fibula back in December in the Rebel's bowl loss to TCU. If healthy this year, the former five-star recruit and top offensive tackle prospect in the Class of 2013, should be a top ten pick in 2016.

ESPN's Todd McShay slotted Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil (fibula) to the Titans at No. 4 in a 2016 mock draft.

"This pick would provide additional pass protection for 2015 first-round QB Marcus Mariota opposite 2014 first-round OT Taylor Lewan," McShay wrote. "Tunsil has very good length, power and agility as a pass protector and is able to get good push as a run-blocker." Rotoworld's Josh Norris gave Tunsil to the Vikings in his preliminary exercise. "Tunsil suffered a fracture fibula in December, so that is definitely worth watching," Norris wrote. "Before the injury he was one of the more dependable left tackles in college football."
May 9 - 5:22 PM

Assuming he can stay healthy, Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil (fibula) can "be an early pick in next year's draft with his short-area quickness to seal the edge and heavy hands to move defenders in the run game," wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Tunsil would be a starter for more than one NFL team right now. If healthy, that is. Tunsil fractured his fibula in the bowl loss to TCU in December. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder was a five-star recruit and the top offensive tackle prospect in the Class of 2013. He's in play to be one of the top lineman off the board next year if the leg is sound.
