Profile

Summary:Praised for his foot quickness, good balance and technique with his hands, Tunsil has garnered the attention of many who believe he is NFL-ready.

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

In 2013, Tunsil became one of the first two true freshmen in school history to earn All-SEC honors when he was named to the All-SEC second team. Tunsil made an immediate impact, starting nine of the 12 games he played, allowing just one sack all year and being part of an offensive line that produced the most total yards in school history (6,153).

Tunsil missed two games with a partially torn bicep in 2014 but started the rest, earning a first-team All-SEC nod from the Associated Press (second team from coaches) and All-American recognition from a number of media outlets. Tunsil received a few nominations for all-conference lists during his shortened junior season. He finished his career by running in a two-yard touchdown in the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma State.

Stacking up:NFL Media analysts Mike Mayock and Bucky Brooks both listed Tunsil as the number one offensive tackle in their pre-combine position rankings, and Daniel Jeremiah lists him above all other players on a list of the top 50 prospects

In high demand:Tunsil had offers from every major BCS program, including every SEC school. The Florida native eliminated his home-state Gators from the list when they recruited the highly touted D.J. Humphries, who would start at left tackle and go on to be drafted by the Arizona Cardinals.
