I wouldn’t even flirt with the idea of moving Tunsil again. I think it would be a disaster. Look how long it took him to recover last season at LT after playing at LG the year before.I have a feeling if we end up with Tua, Tunsil moves to the right side to protect his blind side.
I get the assumption that JuJuan James is better than a potential third round pick, because as the draft progresses the odds are less of nailing quality talent, but there is talent all through every draft. The blanket statement that "James is a much better player than anyone you could get in the third round" is just wrong. We all praise New England for doing things the right way, not overpaying, and getting loads of comp picks, then we say things like that when we copy them. His replacement doesn't have to be drafted in the third. A right tackle can be drafted anywhere, and the comp pick just gives us another opportunity to grab a guy in the third where starters abound - at guard, center, WR, LB, S...all kinds of quality players at those positions in the third. Can't over pay for a "decent" but not alway reliable player.
