Rams Select Robert Quinn - DE - North Carolina

The St. Louis Rams selected Robert Quinn 6'4" 265 lb defensive end from North Carolina with their first round selection, and 14th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. With wide receivers A.J. Green and Julio Jones going to the Cincinnati Bengals and the Atlanta Falcons respectively the Rams choose to select a defensive player. Robert Quinn was considered a top 10 talent by many however he did not play at all in 2010 after being ruled permanently ineligible for accepting $5,642 worth of extra benefits from agents in violation of NCAA rules. Quinn had 25.5 tackles for loss while playing only 25 games at North Carolina. Quinn has a huge upside and could be a steal at #14 overall for the St. Louis Rams who will line him up opposite of Chris Long who developed well playing LDE last year. If the Rams are still looking for a WR with the 47th pick overall in the 2011 NFL Draft they make look at Titus Young from Boise State or Leonard Hankerson from Miami Hurricanes.
