I don't know where you get this.He's more like a guard than a tackle. But it's been a dilemma because his frame is not ideal for either position.
I have no idea how Hunt's play was touted based on 2020. He gave great effort but was stiff and anything but natural as a tackle, especially when pass blocking.
Besides, rookie linemen who are inserted into the lineup late season have a massive advantage. That is true on either side of the ball but especially with offensive linemen. I have emphasized that countless times since joining this site, and long before that elsewhere. No way you can take those results at face value. The other guys have been battling all season and have hit a wall physically and mentally. That's why it was so easy to predict the Dolphin offensive line to regress last year. Hunt would have done the same thing if he had been out there from day one.
Very impressive of Flores and Co. not to overreact to meaningless short term results at tackle
I think you've said this before (might have been someone else), and I corrected you (them) before.
Robert Hunt was inserted into the starting lineup in Game 5 and played 100% of the snaps in every game until the end of the season (except weeks 9 and 10 when I guess he was banged up).
