He's got confidence and at this point in the draft, he brings good value. He adds depth to a Texans' secondary that has struggled to come together in recent years.

He was honorable mention all-conference his first two seasons, credited with two picks and 20 pass breakups. Started his career at Southwest Mississippi Junior College, redshirting his first season with a broken right arm. Quin's physical nature makes him a natural zone corner or free safety.
