Robert Quinn was regarded as a Top 5 prospect but was suspended for the whole 2010 season for his involvement with an agent. He’s a talented player but we’ll have to wait and see how his suspension affects his draft stock. He’s an overrated athlete and he really doesn’t have a great first step. He’s a fluid athlete and has a nice variety of pass-rush moves, but I don’t think he’ll ever become one of the best DE’s in the league as some project him to be.
