Lance Zierlein of, who compares Turay to Yannick Ngakoue, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Explosive edge defender with the coveted traits of an NFL pass rusher. Turay is still behind on feel and skill in that area and will need to develop a go-to move and a workable counter to beat NFL tackles. However, his ability to chase and tackle could translate right away. Turay splashed at Senior Bowl practices and certainly helped his cause to go on day two of the draft."

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Turay is an underrated edge prospect who could line up as a one-gap defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker. He possesses solid size and comes with a good amount of upside potential."

His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth
