FLOWERY BRANCH — Mississippi’s Laremy Tunsil and Notre Dame’s Ronnie Stanley are going to be Pro Bowl tackles.

Alabama’s Ryan Kelly will anchor a line in the NFL.

Here’s our story on Kelly.

3 questions with Tunsil

Q: How has the SEC prepared you for the next level?

A: I think the SEC is the best conference, so playing against the Alabamas, the LSUs gets
you ready for the next level.

Q: During the suspension did you give thought of leaving Ole Miss?

A: Of course you have thoughts, missing seven games, the NCAA not returning your calls or nothing like that. You’re going to have thoughts. I had to sit down with coach (Hugh) Freezeand really talk to him about it. (What made you stay?) I talked to my mother, talked to coach
Freeze. I wanted to be with my teammates.

Q: Do you pay attention to mock drafts?

A: No I don’t. I try not to man.

Teams in need: Indianapolis, Seattle, Atlanta, New York Jets, and Cleveland.

Need area for Falcons? Yes. The Falcons need to add a guard. Andy Levitre makes too many penalties and Chris Chester is 33 years old.

Sleeper pick for Falcons: Joe Dahl, G, 6-4 1/8, 304 pounds, Washington State. The Falcons went to Washington State and put him through a workout. Dahl is a good fit for the Falcons outside-zone blocking scheme.

The AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter gives his top players for the Falcons to draft at #17, talks about the interest in LB Myles Jack & tells CineSport’s Noah Coslov where the team may go in round 2.
