Trai Turner's potent run blocking is what drew the Panthers to him, but he also found his footing as a pass blocker last year.
The Panthers had their issues on the edges last season, right up through their Super Bowl loss to Denver, but they were sensational up the middle. Turner’s potent run blocking is what drew Carolina to him initially, when it swiped him at No. 92 overall in the 2014 draft. After a solid rookie season, Turner was an anchor in that facet during the Panthers’ 2015 campaign, when they rushed for a combined 2,282 yards. Turner also found his footing as a pass blocker last year. He was hit with seven penalties (plus four false starts), which was a minor blemish on a breakthrough season.
