In studying both WRs Brian Quick and Justin Blackmon extensively on film, you can make the argument that Quick, who’s significantly bigger than Blackmon, is more naturally athletic. Quick is a very fluid and smooth athlete with excellent lateral quickness and deceptive vertical speed due to stride length. It’s not a stretch at all, when you analyze Quick’s physical and athletic attributes, to understand why the Rams selected him early. With his size and overall skill set, he has a chance to be the best wide receiver in this draft class.
Quick has plenty of opportunity to succeed in his rookie season given the lack of receiving options in St. Louis and a relatively good QB (Sam Bradford) throwing the ball.
