Offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil, who is a top prospect in this month’s upcoming NFL draft, visited with the San Diego Chargers on Monday afternoon, according to a report by San Diego Union-Tribune.
Tunsil, from University of Mississippi, is rated as the No. 2 prospect by Scouts Inc., behind only DE Joey Bosa from Ohio State.
Tunsil is expected to play left tackle in the NFL, a position that is currently filled by King Dunlap, who signed a 4-year, $28 million contract with the Chargers in 2015.
He would be the fifth offensive lineman to be given a contract by the Chargers in the last year, joining Dunlap, tackle Joe Barksdale, tackle D.J. Fluker, and guard Orlando Franklin.
Despite the visit, Tunsil may not be available for the Chargers at the No. 3 pick, as he has been projected in most mock drafts, including Mel Kiper Jr.’s latest edition, to go No.1 overall to the Tennessee Titans.
The Chargers conducted a visit with University of Oregon DE Deforest Buckner on March 30. Buckner has been projected to go as high as No.3 – the pick held by the Chargers.
