Remember Paul Turner, the 2016 preseason superstar out of Louisiana Tech that many fans wanted on the roster? Yeah, what ever happened to him? I know he’s on the roster as of today, but he’s really taken a dive on the depth chart. I really liked him as a player and he reminded me of former Eagle, Jason Avant.
Like Avant, Turner caught everything thrown his way, but he just doesn’t fit with the NFL today. To me Turner was exclusively a slot receiver because of his size and speed. In today’s NFL, teams tend to want their slot receivers to be quick and shifty and that’s not Paul Turner. While he’s a reliable pass catcher, it just seems that the NFL has passed him by.
I’m rooting for him though!
