Robert Quinn showed ‘rare and elite’ skills for end

Published on April 1, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

If there are any questions about where North Carolina DE Robert Quinn projects in the upcoming NFL Draft, NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock doesn’t share them. After watching Quinn work out at North Carolina’s pro day Thursday, Mayock sees him as a top-10 pick.

“From a measurable perspective, I think the kid has rare and elite skills for a defensive end in the NFL,” Mayock said of Quinn.

“To me the bottom line is that what this kid does as well, or better, than anyone I’ve seen in the last couple of years is he’s got an ability to get up the field, bend, dip and get to the quarterback,” he added.

Mayock had Quinn, who weighed in at 264 pounds, running a 4.58-second 40-yard dash. He believes Quinn’s primary position is as a defensive end in a 4-3 defense, but that he also fits as a rush outside linebacker who drops into coverage infrequently in a 3-4 scheme. Mayock sees Quinn as “not so much different” from DeMarcus Ware entering the NFL.

Quinn, who has faced questions about his NCAA suspension for receiving illegal benefits that wiped out his 2010 season, certainly flashed the elite athletic ability teams expected to see. Mayock has Quinn rated as his top defensive end and the No. 6 overall draft prospect on his big board.
