Laremy Tunsil records high grade in first game back after slowing Myles Garrett
What a difference one player can make for an offensive line. One week removed from being dominated by the Memphis defense line, Ole Miss shut down the vastly superior Texas A&M front four thanks in large part to the return of Laremy Tunsil.
Tunsil posted a career-high +4.8 overall grade according to Pro Football Focus, which reviews film by each individual player from every play in the game. Considering he was going up against potentially the top prospect in the 2017 NFL Draft in Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett for much of the night, Tunsil may have just earned himself a ton of money last weekend.
According to PFF's grading system, only 10 other offensive tackles have registered a grade that high and only two of them came against SEC competition.
The Ole Miss offense is clearly a different team with Tunsil on the field. With only four games remaining on the schedule – all against division foes – enjoy watching Tunsil's performance while you can, he'll likely be playing on Sunday's this time next year.
