DJ Turner runs the fastest defensive 40 time

Michigan’s DJ Turner may have seen his draft stocks soar Friday afternoon. The two-time All-Big Ten pick is CBS Sports’ No. 11 cornerback, and he ran an official 4.26 40-yard dash. Watch his run here:

Turner’s time is the fifth-fastest all-time at the combine and was the fastest of any defensive player at this year’s NFL combine.

Fast Turtles

One of Friday’s biggest takeaways came thanks to the University of Maryland. Cornerbacks Jakorian Bennett and Deonte Banks apparently became the fastest cornerback teammates in History of the NFL Combine with 4.30 and 4.35 40-yard dash times. They came in second and third behind Turner.

Banks also led all cornerbacks with a 42-inch vert, while Bennett placed fourth with 40.50 inches. Banks was second with a long jump of 11’4″ while Bennett was just behind him at 11’1″. If you enjoy looking at sporting test numbers, these are the two players for you. Next Gen Stats had Banks and Bennett at the top of the NGS sports score rankings for cornerbacks at the combine.

LaDainian Tomlinson’s nephew impresses

Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson is a minor player, but you know what they say: you can’t run from DNA. The nephew of Hall of Famer running back LaDainian Tomlinson finished eighth among cornerbacks in the 40-yard dash with 4.41, sixth in the vertical with 39″ and sixth in the long jump with 11’0″. .

Hodges-Tomlinson is CBS Sports’ No. 18 cornerback in that class, but he’s fast, athletic and could make an impact as a nickel back.

A family affair

Not only did we have the nephew of an NFL star training at Lucas Oil Stadium on Friday night; we also had the son of one. Joey Porter Jr. didn’t participate in field practice, but he did make the vaults and 40-yard dash after posting some great measurements for one of the best cornerbacks in the class. Here he leads the 40 while his father, five-time All-Pro linebacker Joey Porter, looks on.
