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. May 31 - 7:33 PM

If he proves entirely healthy, Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil "could also be in the No. 1 pick discussion," SB Nation's Dan Kadar believes.

Tunsil fractured his fibula in the bowl loss to TCU in December but is expected to be recovered in time for the start of the season. Proving his health by not missing a game in 2015 is crucial for his draft stock. Fox Sports' Kevin Causey also believes Tunsil is a possibility to go No. 1 overall, and ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks him as the No. 2 overall prospect.

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.

During the broadcast, ESPN's sideline reporter stated Ole Miss sophomore LT Laremy Tunsil fractured his fibula against TCU.

Tunsil's injury immediately looked bad, and his leg was put in an air cast before being carted off. He is not draft-eligible, but Tunsil is one of the top left tackles in the country when healthy. However, he has already dealt with a few injuries.

Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl rank Ole Miss sophomore OT Laremy Tunsil as college football's best non-draft-eligible player.

The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder was a five-star recruit and the top offensive tackle prospect in the Class of 2013. "He has the power to generate push on short-yardage runs and the quickness to seal the edge on perimeter runs," the duo wrote. "In terms of pass protection, he has the length to take away the edge, the balance to mirror and the strength to anchor." Muench previously wrote that Tunsil compares "favorably" to Giants RT Justin Pugh coming out of Syracuse. The true soph has the look of a future first-rounder.

Ole Miss sophomore OT Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) might be able to return before the end of the season, according to beat writer Hugh Kellenberger.

Kellenberger tweeted "Hopeful that Laremy Tunsil can be back for the home stretch with time off." Tunsil injured his shoulder in Saturday's shootout against Auburn. Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said that Tunsil felt like "he didn't have any power during warm-ups." Mississippi wraps up their schedule with a home game against Presbyterian and what is sure to be a critical road tilt against Arkansas. ESPN's Steve Muench noted that Tunsil has a quick first step and the core strength to drive back defenders.

Ole Miss sophomore OT Laremy Tunsil compares "favorably" to Giants RT Justin Pugh coming out of Syracuse, according to ESPN's Steve Muench.

"Tunsil is an effective run-blocker who has the quick first step to establish position and the core strength to drive defenders when he keeps his feet under him," Muench wrote. "In pass protection, he gets set quickly and has enough length to take away the edge, plus he can mirror and anchor." The analyst also believes Tunsil is an intelligent player, though he thinks there is work to be done on the sophomore's overall game. "The area that Tunsil needs the most improvement is consistency in terms of footwork," Muench wrote. "He can overstep to the outside in pass protection, doesn't always take proper angles in the run game and occasionally leans. He can also do a better job of getting his hands inside, extending his arms and steering defenders."

Two NFL personnel executives who spoke with NFL media's Daniel Jeremiah expressed their enthusiasm regarding Ole Miss sophomore T Laremy Tunsil's pro future.

"He's got great feet, and he's only going to get better," one exec said. Another called Tunsil a "freak." Ole Miss has plenty of 2016 NFL Draft talent, so that means it is not time to crown these prospects as the second coming of hall of famers.

NFL scouts are "raving" about Ole Miss sophomore OT Laremy Tunsil, reports NFL.com.

"A player to keep a close eye on, they say, as we head to the 2016 draft, when Tunsil will first be eligible," wrote NFL.com's team of draft experts headed by Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Gil Brandt and Charles Davis. The quartet concluded: "Ole Miss lists Tunsil at 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds. Pretty good size. He's got exceptional pass-blocking skills; he allowed just one sack all last season when as a true freshman he earned All-SEC second-team honors. And he just turned 20 on Aug. 20. If you want a true gauge of his worth, watch last year's Egg Bowl and the difference in the Rebels' offense before and after he left the game with a knee injury. It was striking." Tunsil is a former five-star recruit.
