It’s a pretty common occurrence for fans and analysts to make bold predictions about a game or season. If the prediction doesn’t come true, then that’s OK - you said it was bold! If it DOES come true, though... now you look like a genius!

So in that spirit, some of the CSC staff chimed in with some bold predictions for the 2021 rookies:

DE Payton Turner

Payton Turner doesn’t make an impact in his first year. Carl Granderson, Tanoh, and Marcus Davenport keep him on the sidelines. I’ll even go as far as saying Turner doesn’t start a single game this year.

- Gregory Layfield

Payton Turner finishes 2021 with 13.5 sacks.

- Ross Jackson
