While Laremy Tunsil was no doubt sweating it out waiting for his name to be called in the draft, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell found the moment "exciting."

After the leaked video of Tunsil smoking from a gas mask, teams were hesitant to take the Ole Miss player. His slide finally ended with the Dolphins at lucky No. 13. A once-projected No. 1 pick, fell and it's hard not to think it had anything to do with that video.

"I think it's all part of what makes the draft so exciting," Goodell said. "Clubs make decisions. Sometimes they take risks. Sometimes they do the right things. Sometimes they don't, and we'll see. Hopefully he is going to turn out to be a great young player."

Tunsil took matters into his own hands to end his slide.

Although it may have been exciting for the viewers, this probably wasn't the best thing for the commissioner to say about a young guy about to become employed by the league. Tunsil was no doubt scared and ended up losing millions of dollars thanks to whoever has it out for him to ruin such a big night.
