Robert Quinn, the Rams’ first-round pick in this year’s draft, says he feels like he can be an “excellent receiver.”
Speaking with the media during his pre-draft workout, Quinn said he believes he has what it takes to be a top-tier wide receiver.
Quinn was the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL draft.
The Rams signed him to a four-year contract worth $36.75 million.
The former Louisville receiver caught just one pass for 9 yards in his first two seasons with the Rams.
“When I think back to my college days, it was a whole different world,” Quinn said, per NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
“I think it would be a lot different now with the game we have.
I feel like the game is faster and more sophisticated, and that just shows in my game.
I feel comfortable with the routes I’m running, where I’m at, and the receivers I’m going against.
It’s just the game of football.”
The 6-foot-2, 204-pound Quinn was a four time All-American at Louisville, which produced five Heisman Trophy winners in the 1980s and 1990s.
He was a first-team All-Big East selection in 1991 and 1992.
After four years at Louisville and five with the Vikings, Quinn was traded to the Saints, where he caught 47 passes for 613 yards and four touchdowns.
Quinn signed with the Packers this offseason, where the team released him.
