If Bushrod doesn't win this job outright it will be because Billy Turner majorly improved over last year. In other words, it should be Bushrod as our starting RG.
Since drafting quarterback Ryan Tannehill eighth overall in 2012, the Dolphins have invested with big contracts at both left tackle and center for Branden Albert and Mike Pouncey.http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2640 ... es/page/10
They continued to use draft picks along the line. But injuries to Albert, Pouncey and 2014 first-rounder Ja'Wuan James have limited this group to playing just seven games together in two years.
Miami is 6-1 in those games despite subpar guard play. The Dolphins were fortunate that Laremy Tunsil fell to them in the 2016 class, and he’ll likely play either left tackle or guard right away. Now all that’s left is to determine who plays right guard.
The favorite should be incumbent Billy Turner, who was inconsistent throughout 2015 but showed flashes of potential. Veteran Jermon Bushrod will be a tough competitor, though, as Bushrod knows head coach Adam Gase well and has experience playing guard and tackle since his collegiate days.
Kraig Urbik has the most experience at right guard, whereas both Turner and Bushrod have flipped around. But he’s a worse athlete than either and is more of an insurance policy.
