Tunsil and the mock drafts

When Laremy Tunsil made his 2015 debut, far later into the season than Ole Miss fans would have preferred, I wrote about the incredible opportunity he had to increase his draft stock if in fact it had been altered at all by his seven-game suspension.

Tunsil clearly took full advantage of that opportunity. It was a vastly different offense with him than without him. That was especially evident in the run game where the Rebels averaged more than 200 yards on the ground over the last five games. That same run game, while it had put up — big numbers against Tennessee-Martin, Fresno State and New Mexico State — had averaged only 88 rushing yards against Alabama, Vanderbilt, Florida and Memphis.

Here’s a mock draft with Tunsil as the No. 1 overall pick. It also has Robert Nkemdiche at No. 14 and Laquon Treadwell at No. 23. Nkemdiche is the fifth defensive lineman projected, Treadwell the second wide receiver.

Here’s a mock with Memphis QB Paxton Lynch first and Tunsil third.

Here’s one with Florida CB Vernon Hargreaves first and Tunsil third.
