10 Miami Dolphins players that will determine the teams future
By Brian Miller
Laremy Tunsil – LT – 24 years old
Tunsil has played exceptionally well in 2018 and he has settled into the left tackle position becoming a dominant pass blocker and run blocker. At 24 years old, Tunsil has yet to reach his full potential.
In his three years in the league, Tunsil has played guard and tackle and has been set back with a couple of injuries that have made him miss games but overall he has steadily gotten better and improved each week.
The key with Tunsil is that with the quarterback position in doubt in the next year or two, Tunsil provides that blind side blocking that will allow Ryan Tannehill or even a rookie in 2019/2020 to feel protected. This can’t be understated.
Young quarterbacks struggle early sometimes and most of those cases are when the offensive line protection isn’t where it needs to be. Miami has, when healthy, a good offensive line and with Tunsil starting to reach is potential, there is hope that a young quarterback will not take the hits that so many often do.
He is a solid piece of the puzzles framework that will enable the Dolphins to fill around.
