Former Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil’s draft experience was unraveling by the second Thursday night as both his Twitter and Instagram accounts were being hacked, sharing posts detrimental to his draft stock.
No matter how you feel about the things posted to his social media accounts, one thing was clear: somebody was out to get him. But when NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sat down with ESPN’s Mike and Mike Friday morning to discuss, he seemed to think the chaos was just part of the draft experience, telling Greeny and Golic: “I think it’s all part of what makes the draft so exciting.”

While it clearly wasn’t meant to be a malicious statement, it probably wasn’t the best way to describe it either, and he’s getting blasted for it on Twitter.

@nflcommish thinks it’s “entertainment” to see a kid slandered and lose millions of dollars. I scream conspiracy.

Tunsil was picked up by the Dolphins and will begin his NFL career as a first round pick, but he’ll never forget draft night – for all the wrong reasons.
