The Denver Broncos will visit with at least one draft prospect at the team’s Dove Valley facility on Monday, the same day the team will begin organized offseason workouts.  Utah State running back Robert Turbin will visit the team, according to a Denver Post report.

Turbin (Jr., 5-10, 222 lbs.), is a twenty-two year old bruiser who rushed for 1,517 yards and 19 touchdowns last season with 45 career scores.  Denver has been interested in Turbin since before the combine and spoke to the top-ten running back prospect in February.

At the NFL’s Scouting Combine, Turbin ran a 4.50 forty-yard-dash, completed 28 bench press repetitions (225 pounds) and ran a 4.31 twenty-yard-shuttle.  With speed, athleticism, size and receiving ability, Turbin has the potential to be a draft day steal if he falls to the mid-rounds of the draft.

Turbin is one of BT‘s favorite running backs in the draft and seems to be the type of back that Head Coach John Fox favors.  While in Carolina, Fox drafted DeAngelo Williams 27th overall in 2006 as a 5-9, 217 pound shifty back with power and in 2008 drafted a 5-10, 235 pound Jonathan Stewart 13th overall.

While Turbin isn’t expected to go in the first round, he is similar to Williams and Stewart in his size and style of play.  The Broncos are expected to add a running back to their rotation through the draft, might Turbin be that back?

Would you like to see Denver draft Turbin later this month?  Dish out your thoughts in the comments.
