The five biggest positive surprises for the 2018 Miami Dolphins
By Brian Miller
Laremy Tunsil – LT
When Laremy Tunsil suffered his monumental draft day fall no one thought he would land in Miami lap but that is exactly what happened. He spent his first season as a left guard next to Branden Albert but moved his sophomore season outside. In his first year as the full-time left tackle, Tunsil struggled. Then again everything on the offense last season was horrible with Jay Cutler at quarterback.
Something clicked entering 2018 however and Tunsil has emerged as a franchise left tackle. He is living up to the potential that had him initially pegged as a possible first overall draft pick in 2016.
Tunsil has been phenomenal on the left side and has excelled even with the absence of Josh Sitton at guard. The two worked together diligently during training camp and it seems that Sitton has had a positive impact on Tunsil’s growth.
Despite being banged up and missing some time in 2018, Tunsil is showing that he is indeed a first round talent and the Dolphins offense looks much better when he is in the game. He has quieted his doubters.
