Chris Turner
Position: QB
Class: 5Sr
School: Maryland
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-3.5
WT: 218
40 Time: 5.08
Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 59.4%/2069/10/10 as a senior, after 57.2%/2516/13/11 the prior year.

Positives: Patient, timing passer with good field awareness. Quickly sets up in the pocket, displays good presence, and has a nice sense of knowing where his receivers are on the field. Buys time for pass catchers, goes through receiver progressions, and goes to the safe underneath outlet. Stands in the pocket and takes the big hit in order to get the throw off and remains poised.

Negatives: Tends to spray passes and does not do a good job placing throws. Cannot zip the ball into receivers and must put a lot of effort into throws to get speed on the ball.

Analysis: Turner was an adequate college quarterback but lacks the physical skills to be a signal caller at the next level. Offers possibilities as a third passer in a timing offense.
