Robert Quinn improves numbers at Pro Day

R. Quinn

Back in February, we heard that North Carolina Robert Quinn had a chance to “blow up the Combine” and potentially put himself in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick.

That didn’t happen; Quinn put up impressive times but it seemed like his year away from football perhaps sapped a bit of his explosiveness.  Quinn had a chance to improve his Combine numbers on Thursday and didn’t disappoint.

His forty time went from 4.70 to 4.59.   That’s pretty speedy for a 264-pound man.   His broad jump improved dramatically to 10’5 1/2, while his vertical jump actually got worse by an inch.  His short shuttle of 4.26 seconds and 24 reps on the bench press were also improvements.

Quinn could be the purest pass rusher in this draft.  He carries risk, but what defensive lineman in this draft doesn’t?

The way this draft is shaping up, it wouldn’t shock us to see Quinn go anywhere from No. 3 to No. 12 in the first round.

    Hi Robert,

    Please drop to 17, or at least double digits so we can trade up for you. Thanks.

    With the 11th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select, Robert Quinn!!!!

    I sure hope he falls to 11. Much rather that happen then trade up to 4 or 5 for Von Miller.

    Drop to 10, then the Hoodie will pull the trigger and trade up with Shanahan. Wade Phillips must be salivating however, the Titans need a bigtime corner. The worst pass defense in the NFL…Will be interesting to see what the Titans do!

    browns could like him at 6, especially if bowers stock is dropping.

    if cam or gabbs is still out there at 6, i would bet shanny will trade a kings ransom to move up fom 10 and the browns can take whoever’s left from the quinn, bowers, fairley, julio jones, aj green group of top 10 quality DL/WRs.
