WR Brian Quick-Appalachian State
Weight: 222 lbs.
Grade: 7.1 (Grading Scale)
Draft Projection: 2nd Round
A big, physical WR… uses his size and physical ability to make plays deep down the field… excellent athlete who has a long stride…he’s able to eat up cushions in zone coverage…Tracks the ball very well over his shoulder…has excellent body control in the air to adjust to balls that are off target…NFL ready body…was a dominant player at the FCS level, was often uncoverable and made difficult catches often look routine…a better blocker than most WR coming out…Appalachian State offensive system forced him to learn how to block down the field.
Spent majority of his career playing in a run oriented option system…has a very under developed route tree…excels at deeper routes but often struggles getting proper depth in the intermediate zone…despite size advantage he struggles to get off press coverage…needs to learn how to use his hands and long arms to keep CB’s off of him…doesn’t have elite top end speed…takes a few strides to get up to full speed…not as smooth as you would hope for coming into and out of his breaks…too often he lets the ball get into his body.
