OT Laremy Tunsil- Mississippi:
Tunsil is pretty much the perfect prospect as he has very little risk, he should be able to play at a high level even as a rookie, and he possesses elite upside. That is exactly the make up of a prospect that teams at the top of the draft desire and Tunsil should be taken in the top 5 picks (and likely 1st overall).
Tunsil checks every box you are looking for in an offensive tackle. His footwork and technique are already extremely advanced and he’s got a great understanding of the position. He does a nice job anticipating blitzers and the best way to neutralize a defender. His hand punch is strong and will stop defenders in their tracks. When a defender does win initially, Tunsil does a nice job recovering and stop/slow the opponent.
The only real knock on him is he’s not a great power run blocker, but really that is something that can be fixable. With a couple years in an NFL weight room, he should get stronger and better job run blocking. It’s not even a real weakness now, it’s just the weakest part of his game.
Overall Tunsil is one of the few elite prospects in this draft class and he should quickly develop into a top level pro. He will be a key cog in an offensive line, and he should make everyone better around him.
