We know the NFL Draft comes your way tomorrow evening and some of them will hear their name in the first round out of Alabama is Dallas Turner and he's kind enough to join us right now in the Zach Gelb show on the Infinity Sports Network. Dallas appreciate the time. Thanks so much. How you been?

Man, I'm blessed and thankful. Thanks for having me. Well, we appreciate you jumping on board with us. So a lot of people are going to tell me how you should be used at the next level. I know that you'll be willing to do whatever a team tells you, but how do you think you should best be used as a edge rusher in the NFL? I mean you said probably rushing the quarterback will probably be, you know, the most prominent thing, but you know, it's still gotta be a football player at the end of the day. We all know that it's an adjustment going from college to the NFL. What kind of immediate impact do you think you could bring to whatever team calls your name coming up tomorrow evening?

I think Dallas, can you still hear us? The immediate impact, what do you think you could bring to a team right away to the NFL? Well, I could definitely bring the energy, you know, the energy to the team. You know, I could definitely bring a good positive mindset into the locker room, but really just the football mindset, you know, just being all about ball. You know, just willing to work hard and just, you know, just so, you know, really just inspire the guys, you know, hopefully be inspired by my teammates, you know, to be better every day. We know that a lot of guys come from Alabama and they end up having successful careers.

Dallas Turner, we just saw recently Will Anderson have a very successful rookie season. When you were with Will together at Alabama, where'd you able to learn from him? It was, I learned a lot more from Will, from his mindset and how he carries himself from his practice habits to his treatment regiments to, you know, even the time he even goes to sleep at night. So like really just about how serious he took the game and how dedicated he was on and off the field to take care of his body, you know, really just to give him back to the game, stuff like that.

So I'll probably say that for sure. Yeah, he was an incredible leader. You know, it's rare where you see a rookie be able to be a captain on an NFL team and that's what he had the honor bestowed on him last year. How do you kind of describe your leadership capabilities? Because, hey, you go in the top 10, people not only expect you to dominate on the field, but then also be a leader on and off the field.

Yeah, for sure. I mean, you know, being around the great leaders, I've been around the University of Alabama, you know, like Bryce Young, Will Henderson, Jordan Battle, Henry Toto, just to name a few. You know, I kind of know what it takes to be a leader in a way, you know, I kind of know the responsibility that come with that and I kind of know how to do it in a way, so, you know, being named captain myself last year. So, you know, it'll definitely be a good opportunity, you know, to go into the organization, you know, and, you know, just pushing guard in the right direction, obviously. Even though I'm going to be doing stuff like that, you know, still bring good energy to the team, you know, I'm still going to be part of it to my guys and stuff, so.

Dallas Turner is my guest. You know, a year ago, everyone was talking about Bryce Young, and we all know he was the number one overall pick, and this year didn't go the way that him or the Panthers wanted it to go. What do you say to people that are doubting if Bryce Young could still be a great NFL quarterback? Tell them to keep doubting. Tell them to keep doubting for sure, but no, Bryce Young, everything, Bryce Young, he knows how to play his cards real well, you know, I feel like, you know, the type of dude that Bryce is and how hard he works, you know, just all the the working time that he puts into the game and his body as well, you know, everything's going to pay out eventually, but, you know, you know, Rome wasn't building one night, so, you know, it's going to take some time for him, you know, to develop him and his team, you know, and to be a real franchise, so, you know, but really, yeah, he's a dog for sure.

Just give him some time. I want to ask you about your quarterback from this past year, Jayla Milrow, because he had the rough spot, but at the end of the year, he started playing some really damn good football. What do you think Jayla Milrow could really turn into as he continues his college journey at Alabama? In my, like, in my, in my eyes, I'm going to be surprised if he wins the highest in my opinion, just from knowing from how hard he works.

So, last year, you know, was Jamie was real first year, you know, starting as a quarterback, playing quarterback, you know, his real first game experience of being a quarterback for the University of Alabama. So, but all of that starting May, June, when this man was coming to 630 workouts at 430 to get extra work in. So, me being me, I like, I like to come to the facility early, so I like to be the first one there. So, 630 lifts, I will try and get there at 545, 530. So, I'm there at 535, 545, a whole hour before, and his car is already there. He's not in, he's actually in there working out already doing this stuff. And so, he started that in June, May, May or June was this, yeah, either one of those too much, and it transpired to the end of the season.

So, he was doing this from, could I stop? Like, once the 630, like, what's up? 630 was 630 to when school started, the school started, like, during the summer, you know, you're going to grind and play football and stuff like that, but like, I was going to 630, like, but he was real consistent and making sure that he put his work in and being the first guy in the last guy out. Like, that's what I seen in him. And so, since I seen that in the summer and seen him carry that into the season, I kind of was never like, I never had no doubt in my mind that he was going to be better at the quarterback and he was going to grow real fast because he worked and was willing to learn and, you know, just be a sponge to everything.

And so, you know, it was really just a, I was always at his point, I always had his back no matter what, through the other center down, that always my quarterback, so. Yeah, I can't wait to see what he does this year with Kalen DeBoer, who's a brilliant offensive mind, but I got to ask you about your ball coach from college and Nick Saban. How did you kind of process? What was the initial reaction when you found out that, okay, this is actually happening, Nick Saban is retiring. I mean, you should have gone, but really it was a, it was a surprise at first, but it wasn't at the same time, you know, it was just something that you got to keep in the back of your mind, but, you know, it definitely was shocking at first, you know, finding out the social media and Twitter and stuff like that, probably the same way you did. And, you know, it was just like, oh, wow, like it really happened. Like, people talk about it, you know, what is, what is that?

What is this? And it happened, but, you know, I already feel like with Coach DeBoer being there, you know, he's a very good coach, you know, he has a very good, sharp work, you know, winning and being a dominant program, wherever he was at. And so, you know, I really feel like, you know, he's going to fill in those shoes very well, you know, and create his own legacy there. So, yeah. Do you have an idea of Dallas Turner where you think you're going to go tomorrow evening?

I mean, if you know, let me know. It feels like a lot of people are saying Atlanta feels like the bears. Have you had a lot of conversations with those two teams? I mean, yeah, you know, a lot of the teams that I've visited on, you know, it was a, it was a lot of the teams that were possibly picking me up. But, you know, you know, last year we're seeing, well, supposed to go out three to the Cardinals and, you know, Houston, I'll trade up and go get them, you know, anything can happen. So, you know, this is more of a, just go with the flow.

So, you know, I'm going with the flow right now. Just curious, since you did go up against Jayden Daniels quite a few times in college, what would you tell a team that's thinking about maybe taking Jayden Daniels as a quarterback? Yeah, he threw for 350 yards and ran for over 250 yards in the SEC game. That's all you got to say?

Yeah, man. I can't wait to see what he does. He reminds, he reminds me like Lamar Jackson, except just with a better arm. I feel like he, I love my favorite quarterback.

He got potential to be better than him. I can't name a lot for what I've seen, but he's definitely, you know, I've been, I've been up here cooling with him in the league and Brian. So, you know, it's been really large. All right.

Yeah. I know you got to run, but before we let you run, tell me what you're doing today with P and G and also Old Spice. Oh, you know, real happy decided, you know, for NFL Jared, you know, take this next step.

You know, a lot about changing, you know, a new team, a new team, a new home, a new city. But, you know, I know P and G, you know, has the same as I need to be ready for anything. So, but, you know, you know, just going into this season, you know, they just came out with a new Old Spice toe bar to be able to, you know, have my back heading into anything.

So, you know, it's gentle enough to use all over, you know, and it gives you that 24-7 freshness, you know, wherever you spray that from head to toe, you know, to make sure that you first the other day. So, yeah, so they helped me a lot throughout this process. Absolutely love it. Dallas Turner, good luck. We appreciate it. Thank you.
