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.

    • It wouldn’t shock me if our receiving core was TY, Funchess, Campbell, Cain and Fountain though. Especially if someone steps up on punt returns.
    • Fountain couldn’t  even make the roster last season when we had no receivers though. Instead of saying working back into the lineup I could of said bringing him into the lineup slowly. I noticed today that a lot of players on other teams were announced as being on Pup today. Doesn’t look like Cain will be. He looks really good on videos he posts on Instagram.  This team is so high on him and think he is going to be a star. It would be shocking if they let him go before they see what he can do when fully healthy. Fountain would really have to show star potential.
    • This is where I think a lot of Colt fans could be disappointed - when was Cain ever IN the lineup?  He was obviously set up for more instant success than Fountain b/c of Clemson coaching and better competition (vis-a-vis that of N. Iowa).  However, Fountain has likely developed way more than Cain since he’s been in Indy.  And look up their workout numbers - Fountain is an incredible athlete.
    • All I read from that is that on two separate occasions he was frustrated. The first just after having a friend murdered, very understandable. the other after having a really poor game while hurt players scream at refs all the time so I don't hold that against him and he could have handled the media better but he wasn't even really that bad then.
    • The 2006 Bears finished 13-3 (best in the NFC), tied for 2nd in the NFL in points scored, were 3rd in points allowed, had a great two-headed rushing attack, and arguably the best defense/special teams in the league.  Oh, and they DESTROYED the Brees-led Saints 39-14 in the NFCCG...   How were the Bears a "weak" opponent?   Just because of Rex Grossman?  When the Ravens won a Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer, was that a "weak" team?  Were the Broncos "weak" when they won with a sub-par Manning?
