Player Profile: Robert Quinn


Born: May 18, 1990 in Ladson, North Carolina
Height: 6-4, Weight: 265 Pounds
College: North Carolina
Draft: 14th Pick of the 2011 Draft

Robert Quinn is a quick and physical defensive end, who dominated in college. He is able to effectively get to the quarterback for sacks and hurried throws. Quinn had great numbers in college, but suffered a suspension in 2010 for lying to investigators about receiving travel accomodations and jewelery. However, this tough defensive end is a perfect fit for the Spagnuolo defensive system, and will have the luxury of working behind James Hall, which will be important for his development. Quinn will probably only be asked to rush the quarterback at first, but once he gains more experience, Quinn should also be effective when dropping back into coverage. Quinn is also very good against the run game, which means he is a very versatile player that teams will have to create gameplans for to stop. Quinn is a very important player for the Rams because his ability to get to the quarterback will take some pressure off of the secondary, and make the defense better overall, causing more three and outs, and turnovers.
