Scouting Report on Landon Turner

by Barry Every - 06/02/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Foot QuicknessDivision I Player
On the Hoof: Turner has a well-proportioned body that is already filled out. He has an excellent power base with very little bad body weight. He is built like 2010 Missouri signee Nick Demien.
Needs Improvement: Not getting overextended and moving those feet after engaging with a defender. He could improve his knee bend and hip flexibility, which will allow him to get into a more ideal pass set.
Most Impressive: Huge body that will maul opponents on running plays. He is also a high-character kid with excellent academics. Expect him to be a leader in the locker room and in the classroom.
Conclusion: Already has the size and strength to play at the next level. He does need to improve his footwork if he expects to play tackle at the next level. Turner, like other talented linemen, has the ability to play more than one position across the offensive front.
