Ole Miss Rebels offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil has just been selected by the Miami Dolphins with the No. 13 overall pick.

The standout lineman will now make his dwelling in South Beach after spending three seasons in Oxford, Mississippi. He has been regarded as the best offensive tackle in the NFL Draft and one of the best overall prospects as well.

With Tunsil's selection, the Ole Miss Rebels have a first round selection for the first time since 2009 when Michael Oher and Peria Jerry went back-to-back as the No. 23 and 24 overall selections.

He becomes the highest pick from Ole Miss since Eli Manning was taken No. 1 overall back in 2004.

Best of luck to Tunsil with his new team.
