Laremy Tunsil visiting Chargers, will meet with Titans

Laremy Tunsil's week is beginning with visits to two teams picking in the top three of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Ole Miss left tackle meets on Monday with the Chargers, who hold the No. 3 overall pick, followed by a visit with the Titans, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Tunsil is widely considered the draft's No. 1 prospect.

The Titans, if they don't trade the No. 1 overall pick, are expected to take Tunsil at the top of the draft and pair him with Taylor Lewan as bookend tackles to protect the club's 2015 first-round pick, quarterback Marcus Mariota. MMQB's Peter King polled 10 NFL sources who have "control of their team's draft boards and draft process," and eight of them predicted the Titans would take Tunsil at No. 1.

If the majority is wrong, Tunsil could slide to the Chargers.

The Browns draft No. 2 overall and have a glaring need at the quarterback position. Like the Titans, the Chargers need help on the offensive line. While Mariota spent his rookie season under a lot of pressure from pass rushers, Chargers rookie running back Melvin Gordon had a rough year behind a line that was beset by injuries.

The 2016 NFL Draft begins with Round 1 on April 28, followed by Rounds 2-3 (April 29) and 4-7 (April 30).

Tunsil had an impressive pro-day workout on March 28 and has been projected as a rookie Pro Bowler by NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein.
