With the 33rd pick, Brian Quick is taken by the St. Louis Rams!
Appalachian State’s Brian Quick, chosen 33rd overall as the 2012 NFL draft entered its second round, fits the profile. He’s 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds — more in line with wide receivers selected among the top few overall choices. Quick lasted until the 33rd pick because he’s raw, from a smaller program and lacking elite speed.
“Former hoops standout and high-jumper has had to endure four positional coaches in four years and would be best with simplified assignments, but possesses a unique combination of body length, hand-eye coordinator, hand strength and leaping ability,” Nolan Nawrocki wrote for Pro Football Weekly’s draft preview.
He’s also trending on the twitters.
From those same twitters – “Quick was the fifth of the five wide receivers the Rams who engaged in private workouts last weekend. He blew the team away with his workout”
WHERE WILL BE BE. Here’s the Rams 2012 schedule. They place San Fran (Kilgore!) twice, plus the Packers (DJ SMith!) and Tampa Bay (Corey Lynch?).
