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.

    • If Hill broke the law according to the people who get paid to determine those things, then I think Goodell has enough facts to go with.  If charges get dropped, its usually due to murky evidence, and I would think it would be hard to justify disciplinary action.
    • If its the deflate gate thing we're talking about, his how he conducted himself and the cover up were in the capacity of an NFL player.    To me there is a huge distinction between personal conduct as a player and personal conduct as just another citizen. 
    • Right, I agree with you, I’m saying it’s not up to us to pass judgement and none of us should blame anyone for any decision. I guess I could have phrased it better, but what I mean is that we can’t be sure about anything that has been said or has surfaced, so why are we even arguing over it and getting upset about decisions when we have minimal insight into it. I just want everyone to let it go and leave decision making to the people who get it, yet that will never happen and people will always want justice. I agree though, Goodell catches way too much flak, and we all prance around acting like we know better. 
    • What people want is to criticize Goodell and the league, and they'll do that no matter what.    The NFL said they cannot conclude that Hill violated the conduct policy. There's significant doubt cast on whether Hill harmed the child at all. I think what Hill said on the phone call with his ex-partner was terrible, but I don't think that saying something terrible rises to the level of being worthy of a suspension.   And let's say the league did suspend him over this matter, based on what they know so far. If further information came out, would they be able to suspend him again? I think that's a major legal consideration.   To me, it's hypocritical to make an issue over how the NFL handles player conduct, because the fans and media are quite literally NEVER happy with what happens. If a player is suspended, Goodell is being unfair, and everyone says the league shouldn't be punishing players for off the field actions. If a player is not suspended, Goodell is being inconsistent, and everyone says they should treat each situation the same.    The NFL is now using a committee to give input and help make determinations on these matters. It's not Roger Goodell sitting at his desk and deciding on a whim whether to suspend a player or not. But the popular and seemingly automatic reaction is 'Goodell is an *,' and it doesn't matter what the decision is. It's always about how awful Goodell is.
    • The hype train has been huge compared to what it usually is.   The shows have actually talked about the Colts and I haven’t seen but maybe 1 predication where the Colts are not winning the division.   The Colts usually play better when they are under the radar. Now that they have the NFL’s attention we will see what happens.
