2007 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
When a stat-line of 289 for 467 (61.9%) for 3,426 yards and 37 touchdowns to just seven interceptions doesn't live up to expectations, you know that much is required of the player in question. For Brady Quinn, that's what comes with the territory of being a four-year starting quarterback at Notre Dame. Quinn clearly had an outstanding senior season, but he did not win the Heisman as he was favored in the preseason to do and he did not assert himself as the clear-cut top overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. Of course, LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell is more to blame for that development than Quinn himself. Quinn has great size and arm strength, although both assets pale in comparison to those of Russell. He is also a natural leader and a very smart quarterback who rarely makes poor decisions. Quinn is also tough to bring down. What gets Quinn in trouble is defenses who put a lot of pressure on him, as LSU was able to do in the Sugar Bowl. He should be one of the first two picks in the draft, but if both Oakland and Detroit bypass him, Quinn could endure a minor plunge down the board.
