"Plays with low pad level and flashes the mean streak. Possesses the natural bend to succeed in pass protection, both mirroring ends while leveraging a strong punch and riding edge rushers around the pocket." - NFL.com
"Quessenberry stood on his numbers from the combine (he was among the top performers in his position group in the short shuttle), and did the positional drills at the pro day." - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
"Quessenberry has been a surprise this week at guard and tackle, handling the pass rush all week. He's really a polished blocker with some good quickness. In my opinion he jumped past Oday Aboushi and Brian Winters in the rankings thanks to a crisp, consistent week." - Dave Richard, CBSSports.com
"He’ll also hustle downfield after plays, taking out defenders standing around and cleaning up piles when necessary." - NFL.com
