Agent says Tunsil's account hacked after bong hit video leaks

ESPNNFL / Twitter

Laremy Tunsil's agent, Jimmy Sexton, says his client's Twitter account was hacked minutes before the start of Thursday's NFL draft, when a video surfaced that appeared to show the Ole Miss prospect taking a bong hit while wearing a gas mask.

"It is BS. Somebody hacked into his account," Sexton told ESPN's Kevin Seifert.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on the broadcast that teams took Tunsil off their draft boards as a result of the video.

Tunsil promptly deleted his account after numerous outlets picked up the video. Expected by many to be the first offensive tackle selected in this year's draft, Tunsil was surpassed by Ronnie Stanley and Jack Conklin, who were selected by the Ravens and Titans respectively.

The Ole Miss prospect missed seven games this season due to receiving improper benefits.
