And for those that parrot the "he can't pass block" narrative...

From PFF - Saints UDFA Landon Turner had the Fourth-best pass blocking efficiency (98.6) among ACC guards

Re: Landon Turner

I've watched a lot of game tape on the guy and he just doesn't look pretty. Of course, Strief doesn't look nimble either, and he's got the job done for a long time.

Playing for UNC I figured his pass blocking would be top notch. They had a wide open offense.

I think he's adequate at pass blocking, he's just butt ugly doing it.

Too funny Danno. Let's see how he looks in black and gold. Everyone looks better in black and gold.

Re: Landon Turner

I think he'll be fine. He's not a dancing bear but UNC average what 220+ yards rushing per game last season? The kid was a big part of that. Plus, we don't need him to come in and be a star, we just need him to come in, earn a spot and do the job. That's it.

Re: Landon Turner

All americans and such so starter is there some where.
North Carolina G Landon Turner
Michigan State center Jack Allen

Solid backup with possible starter
Auburn OT Avery Young,
BYU OT/G Ryker Matthews,

The others i know little about
Texas A&M G Joseph Cheek,
Boise State C Marcus Henry

The one I am keeping an eye on is
BYU OT/G Ryker Matthews


So we could get two new roster faces or maybe 3 for the OL?

I agree. Efficiency is the only important thing when it comes to playing football, you don't score extra points for being flashy.
