Player Bio

Quinn was an exceptional high school receiver, catching a state-record 357 passes for a national-best 6,566 and 70 touchdowns during his All-American career at Barbe High in Louisiana. He was also a very good baseball player and a two-time state finalist in the 100-meter dash. Not surprisingly, he signed with LSU, and started seven of 13 games played for the Tigers in 2014 (17 catches, 193 receiving yards; two rushes, 11 yards). Quinn started two of 12 games in 2015, but only caught five passes for 83 yards in the pass-reluctant LSU offense. Having enough of the low impact he was allowed to have in Baton Rouge, Quinn transferred to play in SMU's more wide-open offense. After redshirting the 2016 season, he starred with the Mustangs as a junior, garnering first-team All-American Athletic Conference honors by leading the nation with 114 receptions, gaining 1,236 yards and scoring 13 times. Quinn threw a no-hitter in the opening round of the 2008 Little League World Series for South Lake Charles, who nearly represented the U.S. in the finals. His grandfather is Bob Keasler, who was the head football coach at McNeese State and Louisiana-Monroe.

 

Overview

Quinn's strengths and weaknesses are cliched for the position, but there is definitely talent behind the lack of explosive traits. Quinn has experience playing outside and from the slot, but will need to move inside where his strengths can be best utilized. Quinn has good ball skills and can create small catch windows for himself through route savvy and positioning, but he has athletic limitations that make team fit and quarterback fit a necessity.

 

Strengths

Good size and strength for the slot

Consistent play speed throughout snap

Routes are well-conceived and execution is expert

Good acceleration into turns for improved initial throwing window

Footwork is efficient in and out of breaks creating sharp angles to elude coverage

Handled heavy target load (35 percent) this season as quarterback's safety blanket

Good late work to find a workable catch window against tight coverage

Natural, welcoming hands

Drops were rare

Desired focus to catch over the middle

Zone beater

The biggest takeaway from those highlights is his ability to catch the ball with defenders draped all over him.

Yeah I think he has a decent shot to make the squad, especially since our WR core is sort of lacking imo.

In his presser, Gruden seemed pretty genuinely excited by him. Maybe it's because he was one of the only offensive toys he got for Christmas, but still.

That play at 50 seconds was just nasty.  Almost all your 7th rounders get cut, so I do love taking it on a guy who led the FBS.  Seems to have fantastic hands.  Uphill battle to make the roster but fun fact, our pick Geron Christian is actually the brother of the 2015 Mr Irrelevant.

His clips make him appear ready to step right into the Patriots huddle tomorrow. He's a Patriot WR clone

Hoffman was talking about him today, said something to the effect that he detected in the conversation with the local media that Quinn was more or less angry that he has the "irrelevant" player label.  And he will be using that as a motivational tool.

He has some Barry Sanders in him.......

 

 

The ball goes straight to the ref when he scores touchdowns. 

 

Around here, we say he has a little John Riggins in him.  :)

I get it, in a way, but at the same time, he was drafted. Many players before him never even got that opportunity, and had to have a tryout. He was actually chosen. Hopefully it's the right kind of angry. Nothing irrelevant about being drafted, in any sport.
