The Miami Dolphins snagged what many think is not only the best lineman in the NFL Draft but also potentially the best player when Ole Miss’ Laremy Tunsil slid to No. 13 after a bizarre video of him smoking weed through a bong mask was tweeted from his Twitter account.
He and his agent claimed it was hacked after the 315-pound tackle fell from football heaven into Miami’s lap.
Is it possible his stepfather — who is suing Laremy — is messing with him?
Update: Tunsil was asked about taking money from his coach and confirmed it in an interview after getting selected.
Tunsil just denied an exchange of money between him and his coach. Then, asked again, said it happened. Then interrupted, ushered off stage.

Props to honesty. Sucks to be Ole Miss.
Meanwhile Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald asked what has to be one of the stupidest questions ever asked of any NFL General Manager.
I ask Grier if Tunsil loves FB more than he loves drugs. "Yes."

What did he think he was gonna say? Uh nope, but we drafted him anyway.
Bizarre draft night but the Dolphins got a gem, so long as he stays on the field.
