I disagree as well. Any kid able to fight through cancer and still perform at a high level, with that kind of size and pass rushing ability, as well the ability to break off into coverage, that's rare.
I dont' see any character concerns unless we are talking about the self righteous NCAA all of a sudden pretending poor, black kids just started taking money from agents in 2010.
Sorry, wasn't born last night.
Every single talented poor kid to come through college has likely taken "gifts" from an agent.
Old news and not really a character concern to me at all.
The NCAA is a phony and only pretending to show they are cracking down with this stuff, likely to appease the government.
But, I wasn't born last night. I'd bet the % is very high for players taking gifts from agents, whether it was 1985 or 2005.
I don't blame a poor kid for wanting to take care of his parents. I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't accept the gifts if I was in their position.
"As a junior in 2010 Quinn didn't play any games after he was ruled ineligible by the NCAA
for lying to investigators about receiving travel accommodations and jewelry."
As for him not playing....Gronkowski didn't play his Sr year and he had a serious injury.
Quinn is a great fit across the board for a 3-4 OLB, IMO. I'd love it if he dropped to 17, but I doubt it.
I put a lot more stock into surviving cancer than I do taking a hotel reservation from an agent.http://www.theacc.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/120508aae.html
Also, if you want an elephant prototype in a 3-4, a la McGinest, he is it.
