Trai Turner's declaration came as a surprise to many of us. We quickly decided the RS SO was making a mistake in declaring early, partially due to the lack of decoration during his career and the lack of coverage of his draft opportunities.

Cam Cameron discussed that Turner's Guard/Center flexibility would make him an intriguing option to NFL teams who typically only carry 7-8 OL during the regular season. His ability to play all across the middle of the OL clearly drove up his value.
