Turay working his butt off

Recommended Posts

This guy is going to be a beast as long as he can stay healthy. I expect big things from him this year.

So, being a Colts fan aside, that’s some pretty impressive hand work. I even saw a little dip and bend around the edge on that break.

 

If you go back on his feed, you can even see him put the ole spin move on some equipment.

 

He’s putting in the work to be THE guy on the edge. He looks lean, in shape, and putting in what it takes. There’s a REAL chance we can see double digit sacks from this guy in 2019. I’m so excited for our second year players

He and Lewis are the two guys I expect, or at least hope, to make the biggest jump from this past years rookie class. Especially since Nelson and Leonard already look like complete studs.

 Upper body power, fast power hands and a quick, powerful lengthy jab.

But, but, why would we want another guy with that kind of upside?
Oh ya, because we love him.  :headspin:

Quick hands. That’s important for a DE. However let’s wait and see how it translates to his play. A lot more to the game than that. 

 

However dude looked shredded.

If he has completely healed from his shoulder surgeries IMO he is not going to disappoint.

He has a good trainer no doubt.

I don't know how much what he's doing there translates to production on the field or how much credit he should get for simply working to improve on his job, I'd kinda be expecting the players to be doing that as a bare minimum.

 

Suppose it's nice to get updates.

I am all in on Turay for next year.

 

If Lewis starts the year fully healthy and on the interior more (as it seemed the plan was when we drafted him), I see them both having a big year.

I have been on The Turay train since seeing him in the preseason. He has the ability to be a better version of what we seen from Mathis. If Lewis can provide an UT presence beside him, whoaaaaaaaaa lord.

Yeah, I don't often see a player stand completely still and move their hands really fast. 

 

I'm guessing there are people who can do that but still can't get past a 330lbs Offensive Lineman?

Hand work looks really nice. I just hope he’s also been in the weight room.  He needs to hold up better in run support this season.

I don’t get excited until the structural damage happens. 

 

Jihad Ward’s offseason > everyone else.

So you are saying players that work on technique are wasting their time?? I’m not understanding where you are going with this I guess. A WR stands still and catches balls from a jugs machine. Why, well that’s because he is practicing to get better. It all makes since to me!

Nope. Not saying that they're wasting their time at all. Technique is massively important but nailing technique in drills doesn't automatically correlate to production on the field.

 

I'm saying that I hope the practice of the base components translates to production, where it matters, on the field.

 

To continue with your analogy, if I saw a wide receiver standing still and catching using a jugs machine I would also wonder whether the completion of that base activity would transfer to production when the padding is on, routes are being run and bodies are flying.

I am high on Turay...I am a sucker for guys with the traits that he possesses.

 

Aside from a few flashes...Turay didn't seem to have much of a plan when rushing the passer last year...seemed like he was just betting by on his raw ability to out-twitch or go around the OT.

 

Needs to get stronger as well and know...and develop better handwork and moves (which is great to see here). That's how he becomes legitimate high-level starting LDE for this team...because I believe the ability is already there...unlike anyone else on the roster. 

 

Injuries are a concern. Hopefully that can improve with strength and conditiioning...but sometimes big twitchy athletes tend to be more susceptible lower leg injuries (maybe cause it's not natural to be that big and move that quickly...I don't know). He was hurt during the Combine/Pro Day and he got hurt last season. Not saying it will happen more...just that it is something to watch.

 

So this is why I think depth and competition is going to be key for DE. Need a couple more guys at DE that have the types of traits that Turay has. I don't there is currently anyone in the DL group that can do what he does. That difference is palpable when you watch someone like Muhammad or Ward take a snap vs. Turay...and that Turay as a green rookie.

Oh definitely, injuries are something to watch with him. The hip during the season, knee in the late summer, and a hamstring during the Combine. And of course the two shoulder surgeries from college. Had to search to see what the specifics of those leg injuries were but yeah, durability is definitely something to keep an eye on.

    • While some of those folks own up to it later, it is amazing how quiet some of them get.
    • A 5th round pick and a ham sandwich.  With extra mayo.
    • I don't think he ever said that.  I think he made some general threat to the woman that made reference to the kid, and then people quickly ran with that to interpret it as him saying that he would do to her what he did to the kid, thereby indirectly implying he broke the kids arm.  At least it seemed like there could be enough smoke generated from this tape to justify kicking him out of the league to send the all-important proper social message.  I think now the feeling is that the interpretation of what he was talking about is flawed.   It sounds like this has come down to where he simply threatened her during an argument.  Not enough smoke to suspend him, IMO.
    • I don't want to use resources on another linebacker, so in order for me to pull the trigger, it would have to be a huge steal. I'd do a 2nd rounder
    • You're acting as if we don't know anything about Deon Cain. The higher ceiling is based on the fact that he's a second round talent that dropped due to personality concerns, and the fact that he was doing so well in camp. Obviously I'm not saying they don't like Fountain, but before the preseason the Colts were calling him "the steal of the draft". Turns out we did have the steal of the draft, but that's besides the point    The ACL tear isn't being underestimated, the thing is that there's a difference when you tear your ACL in August vs October or November. Also, what has Fountain done to prove more than Cain? He was on the practice squad, and he had that one divisional game drop. Other than that I don't see why you think Fountain is more proven or whatever. And it is simply absurd to have him over Pascal and Chester. The problem is that we know what they are: not very good. When deciding who to keep on the roster, the question is not "have these guys contributed before?" The question is "will these guys contribute?" And the answer is, from what I've seen and heard, Deon Cain is talented and is at least worth keeping more than Pascal and Chester.
