CHICAGO — The Latest on the second day of the NFL draft (all times local):
Mississippi offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil was a no-show at the Miami Dolphins’ news conferences Friday to present him as their first-round pick.
Tunsil was absent due to an allergic reaction, the team said.
“Unfortunately, Laremy had an allergic reaction this afternoon, so right now he’s with our medical staff and hopefully it’s just a quick, short-term thing,” Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said.
Tunsil went through a bizarre plummet in the first round on Thursday. Considered a top-five pick, he went 13th overall after he said his social media accounts were hacked and incidents of his troubled past became public minutes before the first round began, including a video of him smoking from a gas mask-bong contraption.
Also, a post on his Instagram showed an alleged text message exchange between the offensive lineman and an Ole Miss football staff member that included Tunsil’s request for money for bills.
