Brian Quick WR Appalachian State #8 Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 220

  Strengths: Elite size and strength. Very good hands; does a nice job catching the ball away from his body. Excellent body control; does a great job timing his jumps to pluck the ball at its highest point; also looks comfortable working the sideline. Runs hard after the catch; capable of breaking tackles of smaller defensive backs. Willing to go across the middle and doesn’t shy away from contact. Fairly strong blocker for a receiver, and has the size to continue to get better. Weaknesses: Lacks breakaway speed; probably won’t be able to stretch the field at the next level. Ball security could become an issue; often runs with the ball away from his body. Level of competition is a concern; hasn’t faced many cornerbacks that could match his skill level. Route running is inconsistent and effort doesn’t always appear to be there; wasn’t really forced to fight to get open very often at the FCS level. Suffered season-ending back injury in 2007. Comments: Quick is still fairly raw, and has never been tested against elite competition, but he has all the physical tools necessary to be a elite receiver at the next level. The biggest question mark is his lack of speed, but if he develops his route running he won’t have a problem getting open. He is far from a sure thing, and will probably have a minimal impact at first, but has enough upside to warrant a 2nd-round pick. Videos: 2011 vs Elon
