Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil might be an elite talent. That’s why the Dolphins invested the No. 13 overall pick in the Ole Miss lineman.
But Tunsil isn’t playing his natural position during his first season with the Dolphins. With veteran Branden Albert already slotted at left tackle, Tunsil has been moved inside to left guard. While Tunsil was drafted to become the franchise’s blindside protector of the future, he still has a lot to learn about his new position, according to his coach.
“He’s got a lot to learn,” Gase said, according to the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero. “… That inside is a different angle. He’s learning. The good thing about him is he works hard.”
It’s evident that Tunsil has barely begun to scratch the surface of his potential. But by season’s end that can change. And Miami could have a pretty reliable left side of its offensive line, something quarterback Ryan Tannehill will greatly appreciate.
