How marijuana created some of the best bargains in the NFL draft
Hours before the 2016 NFL draft was set to begin, potential No. 1 overall pick Laremy Tunsil had a problem. A video of him smoking what appeared to be marijuana from a gas mask was published on his Twitter timeline, followed by embarrassing leaks of private conversations with Ole Miss staff members.
Suddenly, one of the draft’s top player’s prospects dwindled. He slipped through the top 10 picks before landing at the 14th spot with the Miami Dolphins. The difference between the contract he signed and the one Jared Goff earned at the No. 1 spot was significant — a $17.5 million gap.
That could turn out to be one hell of a deal for the Dolphins. It wouldn’t be the first time a little weed helped an NFL team make out like a bandit at the NFL draft.
