Earlier this week, our man Ben Standig posted a draft profile of Utah State running back Robert Turbin.
I’m not sure if Ben knew it at the time but it turns out that according to our friends at Pro Football Talk Turbin has visited the Redskins.
Here is a little bit of what Ben wrote about Turbin:
Until Tim Hightower officially joins the mix with Roy Helu and Evan Royster, the Redskins could use an interior, short-yardage type runner. Enter Turbin. After missing nearly two seasons with injuries (toe, knee), the powerful cutback runner responded with a statistically loud season for Utah State, the kind that earns one WAC offensive player of the year honors.
A visit isn’t necessarily an indication that a team intends to draft a player. Indeed, a player could be taken off of the draft board after a visit if does not go well. It’s all just a part of the process and due diligence.
But the Redskins do need a third running back and if they don’t come to terms with Tim Hightower or don’t think that he will be ready for the start of the season, someone like Turbin would make sense.
