Re: Landon Turner

With proper coaching, he can become a mauler.

Hope it works out for us.

Doubtful. 30 yrs old and a top 3 center. They would have to be insanely smart to unseat him. As a center you have to be extremely smart. Blocking alone just wont cut it.

How hard is it for a center to move over to guard?

Probably depends on what front the defense is playing and also if you run a zone blocking scheme yourself.

Zone blocking schemes sometimes can be difficult to learn because the whole line slides and has to make one definitive gap for the RB to plant and go through.

SIGN A TOP CENTER HECK ANY POSITION AT THE AGE OF 30+ TO A HUGE CONTRACT IS A SCAREY RISK
