Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

A former baseball star who threw a no-hitter in the 2008 Little League World Series, Quinn also competed in track and field and was a four-star football recruit. The Louisiana native played his first two collegiate seasons at LSU, but he struggled to produce in the Tigers' run-heavy offense, combining to catch just 22 passes for 276 yards and no touchdowns.

Quinn opted to transfer to SMU, where he joined coach Chad Morris, who was the offensive coordinator when Clemson tried to recruit him. After sitting out the 2016 season, Quinn went on to lead the nation with 114 catches last year, recording 1,236 yards and 13 TDs.

ANALYSIS

Quinn is the prototype for a slot receiver. He can run any route in the tree with precision. He's smooth and sudden in and out of his breaks. He does an excellent job setting up DBs on routes. Quinn is solidly built to take a beating over the middle and possesses extremely reliable hands.

He's limited athletically, running a 4.55 40 at the NFL Scouting Combine that seems about right on the tape. He played outside but at under 6 feet and without the long speed to take the top off a defense, he's a slot receiver at the next level. Tore up lower level competition at SMU.

Quinn was a highly-recruited receiver and was able to get on the field in the SEC. He doesn't burst off the line and will be looked at exclusively as a slot receiver, but could be an intriguing option for a team that could best utilize his skill set.
