Panthers selected LSU G Trai Turner with the No. 92 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Turner (6-foot-2 1/2, 310) started 20 games at right guard for the Tigers, paving holes for Jeremy Hill en route to second-team All-SEC honors in 2013. He turned pro as a redshirt sophomore and will be a 21-year-old rookie. Turner displayed plus athleticism with a 4.93 forty and 27 1/2-inch vertical at the Combine, and his lengthy 34-inch arms will come in handy for pass protection. In the run game, Turner showed flashes of drive-blocking power in college football's top conference. The Panthers are hoping for a healthy Amini Silatolu, and Turner can start on the opposite side of the center. May 9 - 11:03 PM

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes LSU G Trai Turner is the best "under the radar" prospect in the trenches.

"Only 20 career starts... but you think about the last four games, he played every offensive snap for the bayou bengals," Kiper said. "Good player with a chance to be even better down the road." Turner was somewhat of a surprise entrant, but it is a strong possibility that he hears his name called in the third-round. The third day talent at guard is very lean.

LSU redshirt sophomore G Trai Turner declared for the NFL draft.

Turner announced his intentions on the same day RB Jeremy Hill bolted for the NFL, making seven Tigers' underclassmen who will leave for the NFL early. Turner (6-foot-3, 316 pounds) is a strong run blocker who cut large holes for Hill to barrel through this past season.

LSU redshirt freshman G Trai Turner is ready for an increased amount of playing time after junior G Josh Williford suffered a head injury against Florida.

Head coach Les Miles is optimistic that Williford will be able to play Saturday against South Carolina, but if not Turner would step into the starting role. The Tigers have been dealt a rash of injuries along their offensive line, and the right guard spot is just the next in line.
