Ja'Wuan James might be a rookie but he's been playing like he's been in the league for years. James, who started the season at right tackle, has been moved to the left side due to Branden Albert's season ending injury. James said he is just trying to get better every week.
“I’m never comfortable. I’m never comfortable at any position, I’m just trying to get better at everything, whether it’s right, left, or if they want me to play guard. I’m just trying to get better every day.”
Replacing James on the right side is Dallas Thomas and he has gotten better each week with every snap. James and Thomas were teammates at the University of Tennessee but says they don't think or talk about that much. Instead, they just go out and get the job done, taking one day and one practice at a time.
“I think we’ve got a lot of work, a lot of room to get better. But we continue to work, me and Dallas, everybody in the room is a hard worker, good character guys that are trying to get better. I think over time with just more reps will keep getting better and better.”
As the bookends on the offensive line, they are responsible for protecting Ryan Tannehill and they'll work to continue to get better each day in an effort to provide the most possible room for Tannehill to throw on game day.
