The fact that I've said the same since 2006 means that I think Spencer was next level, and I'm not the only one.The fact that you think you saw more out of Charles Spencer than you've seen out of Tunsil says it all. Not that it's a be all end all but you should go check out PFF's OT ratings.
If you consider Tunsil worth a 1st and he is, then they really only gave up an extra 1st to get him. Not two 1sts.
I also think they found out pretty quickly in TC that Howard was a RT. They started him off at LG to get him some experience and the plan was to move him to RT eventually. That plan got sped up do to Henderson's suckage.
Fine, we spent a first on Tunsil, and another first on his mithril jersey.
They started Howard at LG and RG and RT and everywhere else on the line in spite of being the second lineman taken in the draft. You don't get to "that was the plan all along" by playing someone at the wrong position with our history ... unless it fits your narrative instead of reality.
I have no qualms against Tunsil, he's really good and am glad he's on our team. My only problem, and will continue to be, is how he got here. But, the detractors get a free pass now with Howard's injury.
