DJ Turner had to have been the favorite to run the fastest time. Just put down a 4.27u.

Michigan CB DJ Turner with the 4.27!

No surprise there. His recovery speed and short-area agility are two of his strongest traits. He’ll put up an insane three-cone time, too.

Impact on Turner’s draft stock

Listed at 6-feet and 180 pounds, Turner has great size for the defensive back slot in the NFL and showed the speed to match in Indy. Along with his production of 3 interceptions and 17 pass breakups across 2021-22 while at Michigan, Turner has a strong case to be one of the top cornerbacks selected in the draft.
