Just about every major NFL draft analyst thinks drafting Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil No. 1 overall is the best move for the Tennessee Titans this spring.
NFL Network’s Mike Mayock agrees, but he would be inclined to try something else instead of simply snagging Tunsil at the top.
“I don’t think that the difference between Tunsil and (Notre Dame tackle) Ronnie Stanley is all that great,” Mayock said Tuesday afternoon in a conference call. “So if they’re able to move down four, five, six slots and still get a tackle, I think that same process would hold.”
In the end, the Titans can’t go wrong with the 6-foot-5 Tunsil, who dominated SEC lineman when he was on the field this past season.
“I think very much he’s a good fit for the Titans, especially because you get better at two positions,” Mayock said. “Not only your left tackle, you kick Taylor Lewan over to right tackle, and I think you have to do everything you can to support the quarterback you chose last year, (former Oregon star Marcus) Mariota.”
