• RB Michael Turner, Northern Illinois: Pick No. 154 to the San Diego Chargers

"Michael is so big and so strong, he's a guy that's fast when he gets going," Northern Illinois head coach Joe Novak said. "He's fast in the second 50 yards. He can learn pass blocking and he's big enough to protect the pocket passer. He belongs among the best seniors or draft-eligible players in the country."

Turner ranks 13th on the all-time NCAA rushing list with 4,941 yards -- and he is sure-handed, fumbling the ball only twice in his last 508 carries. Turner will have an opportunity to compete with Leon Johnson (4 carries for 26 yards last year), Jesse Chatman (8-17 with 5 catches for 54 yards) and Andrew Pinnock for playing time beind LaDainian Tomlinson (413 touches for 2,370 yards and 17 TDs). "My job is to help out LT," Turner said. "He's been carrying the ball a lot, and my job will be to give him a breather and contribute when I'm in there. It's a great opportunity to learn first-hand from a great back."
