 Former Northern Illinois star Michael Turner rushing to heights as Atlanta Falcons\' main man
posted 8 years ago

The only school to offer him a scholarship was Northern Illinois. He wasn't drafted until the fifth round, after 153 others were taken ahead of him. When he became a free agent earlier this year, only one team made a hard push for him. And now, five weeks into his first NFL season as a starter, Michael Turner is leading the league in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and rushing first downs. He is as responsible as anyone for the Atlanta Falcons' surprising 3-2 record. Turner grew up in North Chicago with a poster on his bedroom wall of the Black and Bruise Brothers—the 1985 Bears offensive line wearing sunglasses and black fedoras. At Northern Illinois, he finished second in the nation in rushing yards twice. He also set career records for rushing yards, touchdowns and all-purpose yards for the Huskies. The Bears had no interest in Turner in the 2004 draft. At the time, scouts from three NFL teams agreed he lacked a special quality. Even though Turner averaged 5.5 yards per carry over his first four years in the league, the Bears didn't call when Turner became a free agent last February.
