Robert Turbin scouting report

Robert Turbin RB Utah State #6
Ht: 5’9″
Wt: 215
 
Strengths:
Small, compact build makes him tough to bring down. Adequate speed; can turn the corner and will break off some big runs. An explosive runner; gets to full speed quickly. Surprising agility for his size. Extremely productive when healthy; dominated his level of competition. Productive as a receiver out of the backfield; reliable hands. Hard worker off the field; came back from ACL injury as if he never missed a beat.
Weaknesses:
Missed entire 2010 season with torn ACL. Missed time in 2007 with a foot injury. Level of competition is a concern. Speed is very average; will break off some long runs, but isn’t very elusive in the open field. Isn’t as powerful as you’d expect; lacks the lower-body strength to really push the pile in short-yardage situations.
Comments:
Turbin is a tough prospect to judge. He lacks the measurables of an elite prospect, but it’s impossible to ignore his production on the field. However, he also was rarely tested against any of the nation’s top defenses. He’s definitely worth taking a flier on the mid rounds in hopes of developing him for the future.
