Post Dolphins FINALLY signed No. 67 overall pick OG Billy Turner
Well, that took forever. I wonder what the hold up was with this contract.


Quote:
Dolphins signed No. 67 overall pick OG Billy Turner to a four-year contract. Turner practiced as the first-team left guard during OTAs, but was overtaken by sophomore Dallas Thomas at minicamp. A four-year starter at North Dakota State, Turner is a strong run blocker and has the size (6'5/315) and arm length (34'') to excel in pass protection. Browns CB Justin Gilbert and Titans OT Taylor Lewan are now the only remaining unsigned draft picks.

^^^^

Doesn't matter. There's a set scale for rookies, particularly third round or lower, with little to no wiggle room. He's the last third round pick to sign. I wonder what the holdup really was?

Depth chart without pads on for an open spot means little to me personally. They haven't even started hitting yet. Yeah Dallas Thomas might have picked up schemes better, moved better etc, but that is the extent of it as of now. Let's see how this plays out come full pads and scrimmages/preseason games. This offensive line situation is what has me nervous.

Preach it, brother Finhead! Let's see what they have when the hitting begins.
