Tunsil, meanwhile, is set to make his third Pro Bowl appearance as he cements his status as one of the top offensive linemen in the league.

The dominant left tackle’s 92 percent pass block win rate ranks 12th in the NFL according to ESPN, and his 91.8 pass blocking grade from Pro Football Focus currently paces the league.

The pair of Pro Bowl selections marks a return to form for Ole Miss alumni after no former Rebels were selected to participate in 2022.

Ole Miss now boasts 75 total Pro Bowl selections, including seven in the past four seasons.
