Former Ole Miss left tackle Laremy Tunsil thought he was going to be taken by the Tennessee Titans with the first pick in the NFL Draft. Naturally, he was disappointed when he found out the Titans had dealt the No. 1 pick to the Los Angeles Rams.
Tunsil wasn’t happy when he found out the Titans had traded out of the pick.
“I’m human — it hurt,” Tunsil told the Associated Press’ David Brandt. “Because (Nashville’s) the place you thought you would be going. Plus, it’s the No. 1 pick and they needed a left tackle. Your goal growing up is to be the first pick, so when they traded it, it hurts. But hey, it’s football.”
The Rams are definitely taking a quarterback when they’re officially on the clock Thursday night in Chicago, and if the San Diego Chargers don’t take Tunsil with the third pick, he could fall out of the top five. Tunsil said where he goes doesn’t concern him anymore.
“I just want to play football and I just want to get picked,” Tunsil told Brandt.
