Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State

Robert Turbin is a thick back with a power running style. Has quick feet, always moving forward. He runs behind pads, stay slow, uses good leverage and above average balance. Good speed for his weight and explosive out of his breaks. Very athletic.

Turbin has a great blend of power and quickness. Gets to full speed quickly and a natural downhill runner. Has solid hands and turns around quickly to get upfield. Keeps his legs moving through contact and can continue to gain yards after first contact.

Concerns after 2010 knee injury. Doesn't often play up to timed speed (4.5 40 yard dash at combine). Would typically be described as "more quick than fast." Sometimes a bit reckless with the football in the open field. Vision can still be improved, another year in college could have ironed that out and moved him up a round, but he'll earn his keep in the NFL and probably see the field as a rookie.

Turbin will likely end up becoming a zone runner who can pick his spots and hit the hole full force. He's not a home run hitter, but he'll grind out yards and wear down defenses.
