Quick packs 220 pounds onto his 6-foot-4 frame, and his 34 1/4-inch arms were second longest among wideouts in Indianapolis. Answering questions about his long speed, Quick was timed "unofficially" as fast as 4.48 in the forty-yard dash.
I read a report in where the Patriots area scouts put a first-round grade on Quick's 2010-2011 tape, and he's every bit worth this pick for a team pursuing a vertical presence.
We need a WR and Quick may have the biggest upside in the draft at WR and is a very safe pick. He is big, fast and catches everything in site. He dominated his opponents and is everything you look for in a true #1 WR.
2 (62) - OG- Brandon Brooks, MIami (OH)
Brooks measured at 6-foot-5, 346 pounds with 32 5/8-inch arms, and was clocked at 5.0 and 4.98 seconds in his two 40-yard dashes. Brooks then posted 4.58 seconds in the short shuttle drill, and a three-cone drill time of 7.42 seconds. He also threw up 225 pounds 36 times in the bench press. All numbers were as good as, if not better than Cordy Glenn's. Problem was, Brooks was not invited to the combine so he opened eyes at Miami's Pro-Day.
Adam Snyder may be back but he is an average starter at best. Brooks has the skill set and size to be a dominant player in the NFL.
3a (77) - CB- Josh Robinson, Central Florida
**Trade our 4th round pick as well as a 2013 3rd round pick to Phladelphia for the 77th overall pick.
Robinson offers good size with elite speed. He measured in at 5'10, 195 and a ran a blazing 4.29 -40. He makes plays on the ball as evidence by his 10 career picks and is a very good punt returner. He would step in right away and compete with Tramaine Brock for our nickle CB spot behind Culliver and Brown.
3b (93) - WR- Jarius Wright, Arkansas
Wright doesn't have great size at 5'10, 180 but he can fly. He was clocked at 4.42 at the combine in his 40 yard dash.
We need a field stretcher at WR and Wright is a good one. He averaged 17.5 yards per catch during his time in Arkansas.

Not saying they're right or wrong all the time, but the patriots draft board is always considerably different from other teams. This mock would've been better if we just traded#30 to Philly for 50 and 77. And we keep our fourth this year and third next year. Quick will be available at #51, no need to reach.
I am with you on this. I would be disapointed if we took Quick at 30. If that is who they are targeting then trade back but I dont want him at 30. Even with a fast timed 40, 30 is a reach. Would much rather have Fleener at 30 if he is still on the board.

Who cares what grade Patriots give QUick. Don't kiss their ass cuz alot of their draft picks suck.
Seriously. A players who is an absolute stud for one team could be awful for another and vice versa. We've seen it so many times.
The Cowboys gave NoVorro Bowman a first round grade (then why didnt they take him in the first) and Anthony Davis a 4th round grade.
