Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher was asked about the development of his wide receivers on Sunday and spoke well about the main ones, from Kenny Britt to Tavon Austin to Pharoh Cooper.
Then he got to Brian Quick.
"Brian needs to catch the football," Fisher said. "Your receivers have to catch it, not drop it."
Catching is indeed is the fundamental skill required, and it is one Quick continues to struggle with. Quick's catch percentage last season, 31.3, was the eighth-lowest in the NFL. He had 32 targets and hauled in only 10 of those. And on Saturday, a 21-20 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, Quick played with the second-team offense and caught only two of the five passes thrown to him by rookie quarterback Jared Goff.

Two years ago Brian Quick was in the midst of a career year before a severe shoulder injury robbed him of the opportunity. In seven games in 2014, Quick caught 25 passes for 375 yards with three touchdowns after finally turning heads in training camp. Last year, Quick was held to just 10 receptions for 102 yards and zero touchdowns on 32 targets. That said, the Rams brought Quick back on a one-year deal in the offseason in hopes that the 27-year-old could still flash the ability he showed two seasons ago.
There's an argument to be made that Quick needed a full year to recover from the devastating shoulder injury he suffered in 2014. That said, it's not like Quick has turned heads this offseason. When asked to summarize the state of the team's receiving corps in mid-August, Fisher mentioned Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin and rookie Pharoh Cooper. After also noting sixth-round pick Michael Thomas and undrafted rookies Nelson Spruce and Paul McRoberts were also in the mix, Fisher either forgot about Quick or purposely didn't bring his name up. Either way, that's not a good omen for Quick.
2016 Bottom Line
Quick ranks as our WR98 and is going undrafted in all formats this year. It's highly unlikely that he has a career revival this year, so avoid him on draft night.
