The undrafted rookie wide receiver Turner had an unbelievable camp and preseason, literally catching every ball thrown his way. He’s only 5’11 and not considered a burner, but has great hands and can make plays in traffic. The Louisiana Tech product Turner led the preseason with 17 receptions to go with 165 yards and a 71-yard punt return for a touchdown.
