The Dolphins have begun their day two festivities by selecting USC wide receiver Patrick Turner. Turner is a huge receiver - measuring in at a little over 6'5, 223 pounds. He also has over 33" arms. But he does only run in the 4.6s - which is fine for a receiver of his size.
As a senior at USC last year, Turner caught 49 balls for 741 yards, and 10 touchdowns.
Below is Draft Countdown's scouting report on Turner:
Strengths: Good athlete...Great size and bulk with a huge frame...Runs excellent routes...Very strong, physical and aggressive...Terrific ball skills and body control...Good hands...Plays a little faster than he times...Runs with some power...Can beat the jam...Tough and will work the middle.
Weaknesses: Severely lacking when it comes to timed speed...Is not very quick or explosive...Doesn't get much separation...Isn't very elusive...Sub par blocker...Not a deep threat...Minor durability issues...Limited upside.
I like the pick - though I wonder if he could have been had a round later. Either way, he'll be an interesting guy to watch at training camp.
