I hate it. You're banking Stroud's future on an unknown draft pick. Tunsil ain't great this year but is still considered one of the best LT's in the game. Read this earlier:Show of votes on those that are satisfied with the Texans OL?
For me, I’m not so certain that if everyone were healthy there’d be a massive improvement in the run game. I’m really dissatisfied with Tunsil b/c he’s such a one dimensional LT who’s being lavished over as a complete LT deserving of the money he’s getting. I could say the same thing about Howard.
In the scenario I’m going to present, I’m willing to give Howard a bit more time, but my patience has really run out on Tunsil.
I’d like to move up in the draft. To do this, Caserio would need to be willing to move a top player to even begin to gauge interest. I’d offer this trade to the Patriots:
RD1-05 / RD5-05
LT- Tunsil / QB- Mills / WR- Metchie / 2025 RD3
RD1-05 LT- Joe Alt (Notre Dame) A dominating top tier LT who pass and run blocks eight he best of them. He comes from outstanding stock…his father is John Alt, former Chiefs All Pro LT.
RD1-20 WR- Xavier Legette (South Carolina) A big and surprisingly fast WR that would give Stroud two outstanding deep threats. Collins would move back to WR2 where he’d have much better mismatches. Texans revised receiver room: Leggett, Collins, Dell, Woods, Brown, and Hutchinson.
RD2-49 CB- Denzel Burke (Ohio State) Could be great pick up in RD2 if he’s still on the board. Has the size, speed, and athleticism to be a potential shut-down CB.
Anyhow, I know that talk of offering Tunsil in a trade is usually met with, are you crazy? Replace Tunsil with Alt, and the Texans should be running to the left with the same force AF enjoyed during his best years. Maybe a starting OL of:
RG- Mason or Broeker
I’m almost certain that Alt, Patterson, Scruggs, and Broeker would give the Texans one hell of a nasty line.
linkNon-QB MVP: LT Laremy Tunsil
Tunsil continues to show the world he deserves to be in the conversation for the best left tackle in the NFL. He's third among tackles in PBWR (94.1%) and is one of the biggest reasons rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud has performed so well. Tunsil has anchored the protection around Stroud, who has been sacked only seven times in the past six games. --
