Bio: 
First-year starter who led Rutgers with seven tackles for loss and four sacks and made 65 tackles with one forced fumble in 2017 to earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Combined to make 12 tackles (five for loss) with four sacks in 2015 and 2016. Led the team with 7.5 sacks and recorded 26 tackles (8.5 for loss) as a redshirt freshman.
Pos: 
Explosive athlete with next-level pass-rushing skills. Breaks down well, plays with lean and fires off the snap. Uses his hands to protect himself, moves well laterally and shows a closing burst of speed. Can bend off the edge and quickly gets up the field to disrupt the action. Gets depth on pass drops, covers a lot of area and effectively makes plays in space when required.
Neg: 
Will be a liability against the run. Average ball skills.
Analysis: 
Turay is an underrated edge prospect who could line up as a one-gap defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker. He possesses solid size and comes with a good amount of upside potential.
