2011 NFL Mock Draft: Houston Finds a Gem in Robert Quinn at No. 11
Time off Gives Houston Texans a Chance to Grab Robert Quinn
Robert Quinn is an interesting prospect to pay attention to. He missed the entire 2010 season after being suspended for taking illegal benefits. However, he is still an outstanding prospect that could really help out on the Texans defensive line.
Quinn broke the 4.6 mark in his 40 at the combine and he really turned some heads with his overall workout.
It really seems like Quinn hadn’t been away from the game at all by the way he worked out at the combine. He showed that explosion that made him a star before the suspension and he also played just very smooth in his workouts.
I know the Texans really have a glaring need in their pass defense but I think they have some talent in the secondary but they have needs on their front four that could actually help the pass defense.
Quinn would also form a formidable pass-rush duo with former top overall pick Mario Williams on the Houston defensive front. The rookie would take away some of the pressure for Williams and both guys would be able to help each other out.
