Good to see the light finally come on for Tunsil. It took a little longer that I thought would happen, but he did play guard his first season.

Joe Schad wrote:
Through two games, Tunsil is the 14th-ranked offensive tackle in the NFL by Pro Football Focus. But beyond the statistics, the leap forward is clear just watching him, from snap-to-snap.

“I think (Tunsil) learned a lot from last year,” Dolphins coach Adam Gase said. “It just seems like he’s trending upward and that’s what we need him to do.”

Tunsil agreed that yes, he’s improved in the areas of footwork, mobility and transfer to power. But more than anything, he said he’s improved in the mental area of the game.

“Really from a mental standpoint, I feel like I’m way better than I was last year,” Tunsil said. “And I want to continue to let it be a mental game for me. Just continue to get better. I always want to get better each and every week.”

Tunsil led the Dolphins with 12 penalties last season, including eight false starts. He has two penalties in the first two games, including one pre-snap penalty, but he believes those numbers will be limited.

Glad to see his penalties are down.... And we have only given up 6 sacks in two games.

Penalties are down in game 2, but he had 2 called on him in game 1. One of those, in my opinion was very questionable. He is looking good and did well last week even without Pro Bowler Sitton to his right. It's very encouraging.
