2024 NFL Draft Profile: Charles Turner III, IOL, LSU


The 2024 NFL offseason is here and that means it’s time for mock drafts, draft profiles and everything that goes with them. So without further ado, here’s one of many Draft Profiles for the 2024 NFL draft.

Charles Turner III, IOL, LSU

HT: 6’3
WT: 300 lbs


Senior Bowl Participant, 2024

Outland Trophy National Player of the Week vs. Auburn, 2023

SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week vs. Florida, 2023

LSU Graduate (Interdisciplinary Studies), May 2023



He’ll appeal to man-blocking teams, and he’s a fairly high-upside developmental pick when considering his value in the run game.

Exhibits good patience in pass protection, sitting back in his set rather than leaning and lunging.

Plays with natural leverage and has the strength to anchor against the bull rush. Turner also packs a violent initial punch that can stand up pass rushers.

Shows a good feel for combo blocks, and Turner displays good quickness and flexibility when moving to the second level, capable of sealing the back side on reach blocks

In the run game, he explodes off the line of scrimmage and consistently gets out to the second level to do damage.

Finds defenders with his hands immediately and gets feet moving to engage and sustain.


Could be a liability against speed-to-power pass rushers early in his career.

His size and athleticism are both limited. Orlosky is not a great blocker in space, often struggling with quickness on the second level, and Turner lacks the range to be used as a puller.

Lacks the pure power to knock people back at the point of attack. In pass protection, he’s going to have trouble with top-end quickness, as he often struggles with leverage and balance when trying to mirror.


In 2022 as a senior Turner saw action in 11 games and played a total of 775 snaps for the Tigers. He allowed 11 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and 3 sacks while playing at center.

In 2023 as a fifth year senior Turner saw action in 13 games and played a total of 763 snaps for the Tigers. He allowed 7 QB hurries, one QB hit, and one sack while playing at center.
