Talk about throwing your former teammate under the bus, but that is what Robert Nkemdiche possibly did to Laremy Tunsil today.

Robert Nkemdiche has done his best to hurt his own draft stock in the last few months, but on Friday he might have caused some issues for his former teammate Laremy Tunsil.

Heading into the 2015 college football season, Ole Miss was thought to have the best offensive and defensive linemen in the country in defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche and offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.

Only one of those two enter the 2016 NFL scouting combine as the top lineman in the country following a season in which both players endured suspensions from the Rebels team. 

Tunsil missed the first seven games of the season because of NCAA issues while Nkemdiche was suspended for the team's bowl game following an incident in an Atlanta hotel room where he fell out a window- or off a wall depending on which story you read or beleive- while under the influence of some sort of intoxicating substance.

Tunsil has overcome his early season suspension because of his on-field performance since his return while Nkemdiche has done his best to play himself out of the first round and possibly even lower because of concerns over his possible drug use.

On Friday both players were inside Lucas Oil Stadium for the combine, with Tunsil set for on-field drills while Nkemdiche met the media for his first in person interview since his fall.

When it was all said and done, Tunsil might now have more questions to answer thanks to Nkemdiche.

During his comments, Nkemdiche was asked about the Atlanta incident, which should have been expected, but his response surprised and shocked most everyone in the process when he included Tunsil in relation to this incident.

“Laremy was there", said Nkemdiche who was arrested for marijuana possession, though he denied using the substance on Friday, admitting instead to being "drunk" when he fell.

Now Tunsil will be answering questions about his presence during that event, and if he too was intoxicated or using marijuana.

The Tennessee Titans have long been considered the team that will select Tunsil, who would fill one of their top need with one of the to players in this class. But could this change anything?

Only Jon Robinson and Mike Mularkey can answer that question right now, but it's a safe bet to say that Nkemdiche will be answering questions from Tunsil tonight when the offensive tackle finds out that his name has been tied to an issue that has helped drop his teammate down draft boards.
