Will the Ravens regret passing on Tunsil? (0:58)

NFL Insider Dan Graziano thinks the Ravens' selection of Ronnie Stanley means they won't regret passing on Laremy Tunsil. (0:58)

Today's question: With the No. 6 overall pick in this year's draft, the Baltimore Ravens selected Ronnie Stanley over Laremy Tunsil, whom many considered to be the top tackle. Some wonder whether the Ravens were swayed by the video that surfaced on draft day. Will the Ravens regret not drafting Tunsil?

Coley Harvey, Cincinnati Bengals reporter: It's hard to give such a definitive answer at this point because we can't yet project the professional careers of Tunsil and Stanley. By all accounts, Stanley projects well and ought to eventually give the Ravens the edge protection they were seeking. Still, stripping aside any off-the-field issues involving Tunsil, he was widely believed to be the most talented offensive tackle in the draft. When you have the No. 6 overall pick, it is hard to pass on such a player. But again, Stanley was also viewed favorably. All of this is to say, no, the Ravens should not regret drafting Tunsil. But rest assured, if Tunsil plays Dec. 4, when the Ravens face his Dolphins, he should be motivated to make life even more difficult for Baltimore's edge rushers.

Pat McManamon, Cleveland Browns reporter: Sure. So will San Francisco and Tennessee and any other team that thought about Tunsil and passed. That video clearly was posted by someone who wanted to hurt Tunsil. It was years old. Tunsil had already admitted to the mistakes in his past. Since draft day, he has handled himself well in Miami. A guy who was once pegged as the first overall pick in the draft now has extra juice to prove people wrong. He should be a good one for several years.

Jeremy Fowler, Pittsburgh Steelers reporter: The Ravens were in a tough predicament, but yes, they will regret it. Ronnie Stanley will improve the line and be a productive tackle for a long time. It was pretty obvious to me and many evaluators that Tunsil was a cut above. His fluid athleticism screams 10-year Pro-Bowler. From what I've gathered, his problems in college were more about naivete and immaturity than being a proverbial "bad guy." Work ethic and toughness have never been issues with him. Those are two important traits when it comes to NFL production. The gas mask video was scary, and most people in Ozzie Newsome's situation would have gone the safe route with the No. 6 overall pick; the risk tolerance when picking that high is fairly low. But when we discuss this topic in 10 years, we'll all agree that Tunsil was the better player.
