2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Patrick Turner, WR, USC
Patrick Turner was one of the most highly recruited players coming out of high school (Rivals #2 WR prospect). He began his career in 2005 when he played twelve games for the Trojans, recording 12 receptions-170 yards-14.2 average-2 TDs. Following his debut, he had a similar type of campaign in 2006 (29-272-9.4-2 TDs) and then had a breakout season in 2007. He played in eleven games and recorded 48-569-11.9-3 TDs. His senior season was even more productive. With QB Mark Sanchez throwing the football, Turner was able to catch 49 balls for 741 yards (15.1) with 10 TDs. Big and strong, Turner seems to be made for the Red Zone offense. He is a physical wide receiver that likes to attack the line and his defenders consistently. Turner has a great set of hands, and has good, but not great, leaping ability. He runs good, crisp routes, but his lack of seep is a major draw back (4.60). Because of it, Turner does not get deep often. He does not generate separation at the line and tends to get caught up from behind regularly. Turner has everything to be a good possession-type receiver. He could develop into a Red Zone threat in time, but his lack of speed and agility will hurt his draft status tremendously. A projected fifth rounder who has enough ability to develop into a fine slot WR in the NFL.
