The Splash Zone 8/6/16: Laremy Tunsil Will Not Be Handed A Starting Job

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 first rounder is not starting at guard yet and it has some people worried. Laremy Tunsil is behind Dallas Thomas, but I feel like people are making a bigger deal out of it than it should be. Tunsil was drafted as a left tackle, is new to the NFL, and is playing a new position. There is going to be a learning curve for the rookie. Will he unseat Thomas this preseason? I believe he eventually will.

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