Second Year — Brian Quick, WR

While Austin Pettis is sort of a “sleeper” to have a breakout season, I don’t think there’s any doubt about the second year receiver out of Appalachian State. I thought Brian Quick looked eerily similar to Brandon Marshall coming out of college, and he recently admitted to struggling with the playbook as a rookie, contributing to his poor season statistically.

With Quick, the Rams have a big, strong, athletic option on the outside that is primed for a breakout season. Tony Softli of ESPN St. Louis has been quoted as saying that Quick was “putting on a show” at Rams OTAs, and I definitely don’t think it would be a shock to see him bust out in 2013 as the Rams’ top receiver.

Rams fans and coaches have to be excited about their 2nd rounder from 2013, a player who was completely lost in 2012 and could see a big turnaround this year.

    Yet another article about the “break out” of wide receivers on the Rams and how these receivers will interact in the Rams passing game and no mention of Chris Givens. The article mentions Pettis, Austin, Quick, Kendricks and Cook.

    Givens had 42 receptions in 13 games with 698 yards (16.6 ypc) as a rookie. He had five consecutive games with a reception that went over 50 yards, an NFL record for a rookie. He caught 11 passes in one game against the NFC Champion 49′ers, as many receptions in one game as Brian Quick did the whole season.

    When talking about the Rams passing game, four out of five articles don’t even mention Givens name—including this one.

    Did any of these authors even watch play the Rams in 2012?

      Of course, because considering what these players have done and what Givens has done he would not be able to be considered a breakout player this year since he was last year. Thanks for your input though we are looking for writers if you feel like you want to join the team.
