The Splash Zone 7/6/16: Laremy Tunsil's Growing Pains At Guard

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

The Dolphins drafted Laremy Tunsil in this years draft after his huge slide in the first round. Tunsil was drafted to be the Dolphins future left tackle and will have to find work at guard this season. Branden Albert will still be the teams left tackle and unless something drastic happens, Tunsil will be at guard. However, Tunsil has been struggling on the inside of the line during the offseason. I'd like to wait to see what the team looks like with pads and I'm fairly optimistic that Tunsil can beat out Dallas Thomas.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.

Tunsil’s growing pains could keep him out of a starting job | ProFootballTalk
Thrilled to have tackle Laremy Tunsil side to No. 13 in the draft but equipped with a pair of starting tackles in Branden Albert and Ja'Wuan James, the Dolphins decided to slide Tunsil inside, where he'd easily win the starting job at left guard over subpar incumbent Dallas Thomas.
