The article was old, but that doesnt make it less true. Where there is smoke there is fire. If you are clean your name shouldnt be linked to and scandals, let alone two. It cant/wont be overlooked come draft day. I`d bet he slides to the end of the first rd.
His times where decent, but he didnt play top level talent week in and week out. So his stats are a bit skewed. This is from another poster on another board I read. He makes a very strong argument.
Let's take a closer look at his "super" sophomore season. Now taking the five easiest games on the schedule (vs. Citadel, vs. East Carolina, vs. Virginia, vs. Georgia Southern, vs. Duke). All at home, all against the easiest competition on the Tar Heels schedule. In those five games, Quinn amassed 10 of his 11 sacks, and 22 of his 32 solo tackles. The only other game where he made any noise at all was against Boston College, where he played well against Anthony Castonzo. Apart from that game, he did a whole lot of nothing against the meat of UNCs schedule, the likes of Georgia Tech, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Miami, etc. And this is the ACC we're talking about here. Not exactly the strongest conference in the country. Dominating weak competition while struggling against the top teams in the ACC isn't something that translates to NFL success.
Finally, lets look at his actual skill set. I don't have tape on every single one of his games from the 09 season, but I have seen a few, at the least a considerable amount more than a glorified highlight reel of his game against BC. His success comes almost exclusively from the speed rush. And while he's much quicker than the tackles at Georgia Southern and Duke, he wasn't able to beat tackles from the better teams in the ACC with it, and I highly doubt its good enough to beat NFL tackles at this point. Without a significantly expanded arsenal of pass rush moves, he's going to struggle to generate pressure at the NFL level. That's where his lost year of development really hurts him. And he has no one to blame but himself for that.
Wow. That's a big red flag to me. Nice find CoachingMatters
Yeah, really eye-opening. I wonder how that compares to Von Miller?
von miller didnt really start producing till his jr year and even then Quinn sophomore stats are the same as his junior stats for Robert Quinn to do that as a sophomore is amazing despite who he played the fact is that not many OLB/DE played as well as Quinn in their sophomore year
