U of Florida - Quinn knows these guys
Sun Jan 27, 2013 2:03 pm
  • I have to wonder if we will see any "special" insights from Quinn on his Florida players that will lead to a couple of draft picks from Florida? I would expect Floyd & Reed and maybe Jenkins or Sturgis would be potential picks, not sure about most of the rest of them. There are also should be significant knowledge available on other State of Florida prospects as well as the whole SEC conference full of decent prospects. That knowledge has got to help some in the coming draft. Doesn't it?

    Hopefully we draft one of the following for him, if he wants any of his former defenders from Florida...

    OLB-Jelani Jenkins
    ILB-Jon Bostic
    OLB-Lerentee McCray
    FS-Josh Evans

    Elam is a weird one, because taking a saftey early in this draft doesn't make to much sense but at the same time might be a thought because Quinn might like him as I do and also like the idea of KAM as WLB...

  • He will know more than any scout. If we draft a guy from the Gators I'll be confident it was a good pick. I really hope Quinn can get something out of Jaye Howard, he talked him up to us and Howard was the biggest let down of this draft for us. He has a lot to prove and with a FA addition and 1 or 2 draft picks at DT Howard might have trouble making the team.

  • Jon Bostic is a solid linebacker. Big hitter, good speed, great strength. I would love to see us pick him up in the fourth round if he's available.

    Especially if we don't re-sign Leroy Hill, he would be a great addition to the team and compete with Malcom Floydd for that spot.

    I don't think that's quite fair. Howard made the team. Korey Toomer didn't. Winston guy got suspended 4 games for PEDs. As a DT, Howard was playing behind Mebane, Branch and Jones.
    You can only have so many guys active.

    You are correct in that he will really have to prove himself to make the team this year with DT as big of a need as it is. Something to keep an eye on, for sure.

    We will know the defensive (and maybe even offensive) Florida players better than anyone else in the league.

    If we draft a Florida player that fans and experts aren't high on, it's probably for a good reason...and if we don't draft a Florida player that the fans or other experts wants us to jump on, it's probably also for good reason.

  • Sharrif and Reed both would make me smile on draft day.

    Yep . . . Works both ways. Call it the "Taylor mays" principle.

    I am more excited about Quinn's knowledge of the entire SEC from his time in Florida than just Gator players. Quinn could payoff for the next couple of drafts in that way.

  • Florida was in the top five for least amount of yardage given up, so yes there defensive players are worth a look.
