Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Billy Turner, OT

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Draft profile for a small-school prospect whose name could be called earlier than expected.

Billy Turner

Offensive Tackle

Height: 6'5"  Weight: 315lbs

40 Time: 5.16 sec

Bench: 25 reps

Strengths: 6'5", 315lbs, 34 1/4" arms, and 9 3/4" hands. These are the combine measurements for... Trent Williams. Billy Turner has a smaller arms (34") and bigger hands (10") by a quarter-inch.  The comparison doesn't end there. Turner displays athleticism that his combine numbers won't show you.  He plays light-footed and quick. This allows him to mirror outside rushers in pass pro and fluidly move to the second level in the run game. The most exciting attribute about Turner is the relentless demeanor he plays the game with. He has some mean in him!

Weaknesses: Turner has reportedly said he prefers to play guard in the NFL. His inconsistency with technique makes that a likely position for him. He could improve on his knee bend and overall anchoring against power rushers. His aggressive nature can lead to him play a bit out of control. Coming from North Dakota State he wasn't challenged by many pro-prospects in the Missouri Valley Conference. NDSU went 43-2 in the last three years.

Bottom Line: I'm on a table for Billy Turner. Even though he has the experience of playing in 57 college games over the last four years, he is still a bit raw in his technique. Get him a good coach and he could blossom into a solid starting RT.  His toughness and attitude give him the 'It factor' other OL prospects just don't have in this draft.

Projected Round: 3rd

Teams He Fits Best On: Redskins, Buccaneers, Dolphins, Jets

***Notes***

  • Turner is producing a YouTube documentary following his training and everyday life through draft day. It may be a red flag for Redskins fans after "Will to Win."
  • He is the brother of former Redskins LB Bryan Kehl.
