Alex Khvatov:  Tell me about your first practice here at the Senior Bowl. 
Billy Turner:  It was interesting.  It was fun.  I got out there with all of the big time guys from all over the country.  It seemed like they tried to stir up the fire and rattle you a little bit.  Now that a lot of guys know the structure of the practices, tomorrow will be a big day for a lot of guys.   
Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths on the football field? 
Billy Turner:  I am an athletic guy.  I play physical which is something that a lot of offensive linemen don’t do anymore.  Teams like my physicality and athleticism.
Alex Khvatov:  What are you trying to prove to scouts this week? 
Billy Turner:  I want to prove that I can play with the best of them.  I will be physical with the guy across from me regardless of the size.  It doesn’t matter what school he is from. 
Alex Khvatov:  Describe your career at North Dakota State.   
Billy Turner:  Unbelievable.  It was a crazy experience.  We became back-to-back-to-back National Champions.  It is something that was never really done.  I was one of those guys that had the opportunity to do something special like that.
Alex Khvatov:  What is the highlight of your career up to this point?
Billy Turner:  Either beating the University of Minnesota my sophomore year because I got overlooked by them.  Or it has to be the last Championship that we won a couple of weeks ago.         
Alex Khvatov:  What is your definition of a leader?
Billy Turner:  Someone who is vocal and leads by example.  It is someone that can lead the team in the right direction on and off the field at all times.
Alex Khvatov:  Finish the sentence, Billy Turner is….
Billy Turner:  I am outgoing, physical and crazy.
