Draft Analysis:

Mayock's take: "The Greatest Show on Turf personally welcomes Brian Quick. He's a height, weight, speed specimen. His production could be a little delayed, but he will be fast-tracked by the Rams' coaching staff. ... This is a guy they're going to need production from right away."

  • 6'3" Height
  • 34 1/4" Arm Length
  • 220LBS. Weight
  • 9 3/4" Hands

Overview

Quick has very uncommon size for the position and surprises scouts with his ability to run. The fact that he is a former basketball player and high jumper shows in his play. Despite his short time playing football, he understands how to run routes and get open. Look for Quick to be the highest pick from Appalachian State in years and be taken in the second round.

Analysis

Strengths

Quick's size is his greatest asset. His time playing football has been limited, and professional coaching could help mold Quick into a game changer at the next level. He is a reliable hands catcher who has the radius and grip strength to bring down any ball thrown near his area. He is a great option in the short game, as he understands how to use his frame to shield out smaller defenders.

Weaknesses

Inexperience is his Achilles heel. He hasn't shown the ability to run by big-time corners at his level. He sometimes has trouble adjusting to poorly thrown balls. Being tested early in camp will give the greatest indication of Quick's ability to handle the jump in talent.
