Alabama NFL Draft Prospects

Former Alabama LB Dallas Turner visits Minnesota Vikings in pre-NFL Draft process

John David Mercer - USA Today Sports

Dallas Turner has his second of a few pre-draft visits in the books for National Football League teams.

He spent time with the Chicago Bears, but the former Alabama linebacker now has a visit with the Minnesota Vikings.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported the news as Turner also has meetings with the Cardinals, Chargers, and Falcons.

Minnesota owns two first-round picks, Nos. 11 and 23, and Turner may be the first defensive player off the board.

The South Florida native turned in a 40-time of 4.47 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine. He measured out with an impressive 83″ wingspan. Turner led the Crimson Tide in tackles for loss (14.5), sacks (10), and quarterback hurries (13) for the 2023 SEC Champions. He became a Consensus All-American and a permanent team captain. Turner got Alabama to the College Football Playoff after missed the cut in 2022. We will see which team calls his name during night one of the NFL Draft.
