Miami Vice President Mike Tannenbaum was pressed on the organization's pledge to bring in high character players after drafting Laremy Tunsil. "We remain committed to that. All the decision makers were in the room last night, and we feel good about Laremy as a player and a person. Obviously there have been some bumps in the road, but we're comfortable with that. Moving forward, we're excited he's here and think he has a bright future on the field as well as off."

Miami's Mike Tannenbaum was asked about social media's impact after what happened to Laremy Tunsil. "We were comfortable knowing there are things out there I'm sure he's going to learn from. Obviously mistakes were made. Our decision was based on the player, a big body of work ... We felt it was a tremendous opportunity for us."

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami coach Adam Gase said of Laremy Tunsil, "I see a guy that's played at an extremely high level in a very good conference and is going to be able to transition to our league quickly. This is a guy we felt like was one of the better players in this draft class if not the best guy."

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami Dolphins executive Vice President of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said Laremy Tunsil had an allergic reaction and is unable to attend his introductory press conference right now. Tannenbaum said the organization feels "comfortable" with Tunsil as a player and person.
