However, isn't real balance and struggles to keep his feet under him and cleanly go up and make a play. Isn't real physical when asked to shrug off contact down the field and doesn't have the type of lateral quickness require to beat press at the next level. Rarely is asked to line-up on the line of scrimmage in the Indiana offense.
Impression: A nice sized wide out but lacks ideal burst, balance and overall explosion in all areas of the game. Simply doesn't offer enough to make an NFL roster."
Positive: Large possession receiver who E(TM)s shown a developing game. Effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents, extends his hands, and offers the quarterback a nice target. Nicely settles into the open spot of the field, keeps plays in bounds when running after the catch, and gives great effort. Makes the difficult catch in a crowd and gets vertical to pull the ball from the air.
Negative: Displays minimal quickness and speed in his game. Lacks a quick release off the line, rounds off routes, and does too much bobbling and double catching of easy throws.
Analysis: Turner is a well-sized possession receiver who's displayed steady progress the past three seasons. He offers possibilities at the next level as a fifth receiver."
Negatives: Does not always come back to the football, gets lazy at times... Rather slow, takes too long for him to reach full speed... Drops some easy passes, has lapses in concentration... Was overshadowed a bit by teammate Tandon Doss... Never put up great numbers, only has four career touchdown receptions and has never eclipsed 700 yards receiving in a season... Will turn 25 during his rookie season... More of a possession receiver, has never been a big-play threat at Indiana despite his physical abilities... Marginal blocker, gives inconsistent effort... Suffered a torn ACL in 2007 which ended his freshman season."
