Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about PAYTON TURNER: Houston, 6053 270 4.95. Three-year starter, Houston, TX. Earned second-team All AAC honors in 2020. Missed his senior year of high school with a knee injury and had his 2018 cut short by a foot injury. His final two year run, however, netted 18.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks. He started to blossom, taking his size and overall frame showing he was learning how to use it. Won’t ever be a pure burner up the edge but if he can continue his path of progression from a skill set perspective, the tools he possesses can make him a solid left defensive end-type and one that can shift inside in specific situations. Has an ideal frame for the position. Tall, wide, thick in the right places with long arms and big mitts. Still figuring out the consistency required from a skill set perspective but shows some natural ability and urgency to bend. Can get his pad level down and shows a violent punch. Gets his hands where they need to be. A powerful finisher who can make an impact when he gets his hands on the ball carrier. Shows an array of inside moves that stem from quickness and sheer power. Solid build up speed. Gets heavy-footed and high at times. Lacks the juice out of his stance to pose as a speed threat on the outside. 2020 stats: 25 T, 10.5 TFL, 5 sacks, 1 QBH, 1 FF, 1 BK. Fourth/fifth round. (A-35, H-10 1/4, BP-23, 10-1.74).
