One of the big stories of the first hour of the draft is about Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil, a player who hasn’t been picked after a video of him taking a bong hit while wearing a gas mask was posted to his Twitter account just before the draft.

Tunsil’s agent has confirmed that Tunsil is in the video and says that the video was posted to the account by someone other than Tunsil.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media said on the draft broadcast that Tunsil’s agent has been calling teams in an attempt to reassure them about his client. Tackles Ronnie Stanley and Jack Conklin are both off the board while Tunsil waits to hear his name called, however.

UPDATE 9:34 p.m. ET: There was previously a reference in this post to a tweet from Tunsil’s account, but it was a fake account.
