    With all the preseason praise of Patrick Turner in training camp, it makes me excited to see his potential. Sure he's been compared to the big USC receivers who failed in the NFL (Dwane Jarrett) but based on what I hear he's catching a lot of balls and getting a great release off the line. I was upset when the Giants traded up before us and selected Ramses Barden in the draft, since I was very high on him, but it would seem that Turner could turn out better. Doubtful he starts this year, but does he have the potential to be a strong, tall starter?

    I love the news, but have been burned so many times with great pre-sesason play only to watch them fall apart in games like Derek Hagan.

    That signature is awesome.

    I think it's too early to tell but he definetly has the tools to become a star.

    I don't see any reason why (if Turner works hard and studies up his craft) he can't become a star. Sort of like Solai, Turner has all the physical tools (though I think PT has a far superior work ethic compared to PS) to make an impact at this level. Good body control, large frame, solid field speed; if anything Turner likely just needs time and experience. As noted by the OP, I don't anticipate PT seeing tons of field time this year (barring injury to Ginn, Bess, and Camarillo). But, if as said before he works hard and studies hard too (plus keeping in solid game-shape), I think the sky is the limit for Turner.

    I think that is completely up to him. If he applies himself her certianly has the physical tools to become a star. So if he works hard and has the desire I don't see why not...

    If we all worked hard and lived up to our potential...we'd all be stars in our respective fields.

    While Turner may have a very high ceiling, it might take an unfortunate injury for him to get serious playing time this year.
