They split time, doesn't really matter who started. The point is that DB was broken in slowly and learned the ropes from not only Gibbs but also Salaam. Who's going to break in your mythical drafted future all pro lt?Brown started right away (but he played two of every three series).
Tunsil is not having a good year.Duane Brown: Pos: T, Career: 201 G, All-Pro(1st), 4xProBowl, Texans/Seahawks 2008-2021, born VA 1985www.pro-football-reference.com
Brown's rookie year was better than this, or at least the same.
It was better than Bakhtiari's rookie year.
I still have the game films.
I studied Brown since his college days and actually peg him for the Texans so I follow him very closely.
(I also studied all the Texans linemen in those years during the regular season as well as in the off-season. I even posted numerous games' play by play that included observation on the blocking).
But you're confident about Caserio's ability to draft a good lineman (it's not that hard in the first round this year).
You're also confident that Campen can coach him up so what's the holdup?
Besides, you don't expect the team to really compete until 2024.
The cap space can be roll over or you can use it right away to upgrade the line, giving more protection to the QB, hello?
Where are these mythical good OL coming from in fa? I thought most posters have agreed top level fa's don't want to come to Kirby and not only that but there's no assurances you will be able to draft a LT as good as Tunsil.
Truth is, you didn't like the Tunsil trade to begin with and you don't like his contact. What we are really debating is keeping the known all pro Tunsil and adding to the ol through the draft and fa, vs trading him for cap space and hoping they can draft a guy as good as Tunsil with the acquired draft picks, since cap space isn't the issue.
If Caserio drafts Neal I won't have a problem with the pick because I know he will be a great RT with the ability to move to LT after he learns about the NFL speed of the game and that's when you trade Tunsil if you want too. I've actually got questions about Neal's feet and ability to play LT at a high level after seeing him get beat several times last week against Auburn.
