4. CB D.J Turner, Michigan

D.J Turner made waves amongst the NFL community when he posted an absolutely ridiculous 4.26 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. However, it seems as if people are forgetting that he was a genuinely solid corner during his time at Michigan due to this near record-breaking 40-time.

While his lack of size and length could hold him back a bit in the pros, there is no doubt that he has all the athletic and technical tools to be a great corner in the NFL. It's pretty hard to grasp where exactly he will land in the draft, but if the NY Giants can land him it could be a huge addition to their secondary.

Through 14 games at Michigan last season, Turner allowed just 33 receptions on 71 targets for 408 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, breaking up seven passes in the process. Alongside this, Turner is a surprisingly good run defender for his size, racking up 38 combined tackles while only missing six.

Turner's 5'11, 178-pound frame may force him to play in the slot as opposed to outside like he did in college. While he had a great season, there were moments when he would get tossed around by more physical receivers which could become a problem. Despite this, moving him inside to the slot could prove to be a more suitable role for Turner.
