Brian Quick, Wide Receiver, Appalachian State Scouting Report

Appalachian State WR Brian Quick Could be 2012's Top Small School Prospect

This is our Brian Quick scouting report. For all of our other scouting reports


6’4″ 220 pounds, 9.75 inch hands, 34.25 inch arms

4.55 forty yard dash, 15 bench press, 34 inch vertical jump, 119 inch broad jump, 7.10 3 cone drill, 4.23 20 yard shuttle

Initial Scouting Report

Great ability to make the most out of poor quarterback play, shown big play ability throughout his career. Good hands, and will always have a size advantage. Effective after the catch, and despite his lack of pure speed manages to get open down the field. Great leaping ability, which will be a huge advantage going forward for him. He has a limited route tree and obviously plays at a lower-tier school than his draft peers, but he has a lot of talent to compensate. Slightly struggles to find separation on intermediate routes. Very raw in terms of his overall football IQ, whatever you want to define that as. He still has a lot of developing to do but if you ask a guy to go out and make plays, he is a good candidate. Should be an attractive name at offseason bowl games.

PROS: Athletic ability, size, strength, run after catch, ability to make plays down the field, hands, leaping ability, upside.

CONS: Limited route tree, slightly similar to a WR coming from a Georgia Tech only against lesser competition, straight line speed isn’t great, very raw, level of competition.

Player comparison: Poor man’s Brandon Marshall

When Marshall was coming out, he wasn’t even considered to be the fourth round pick he was selected as. He generated a reputation on the field in Denver as a dominant receiver, but off-field issues have plagued his career. If not for specific incidents, Marshall could be one of the league’s best. I think Quick has the potential to be a better pro prospect than Marshall with similar size/speed and even better ability on deep passes.
