Quick Take:

Best ILB in the draft, Quan is a developed, mature 4 year starter, who has the versatility to play both inside and outside.  good sideline to sideline speed.  Knows how to engage and get off of blocks, able to fill the hole quickly.  Is in his element wrapping up and tackling, and has the discipline and knowledge to be looking for the strip or fumble recovery.  Is experienced in various coverages, and has the quick speed and feet to break quickly on the ball in his zone.  Tough player who is ready for three downs in the NFL.  Injured hamstring has slowed his rise up the draft boards during the offseason, but teams will take him off the board first for inside Mike help.

Where He Goes in the Draft:

Middle of 2nd round

What is Denver's Interest In Him?

High.

Denver will have their eye out for solid help in the LB corps, and Quan certainly qualifies.  He has the quick, sturdy frame that Fox likes in his backers, with solid technique and fundamentals, but #46 will probably be too late to select him.  He will be on Denver's list at #36 if available.

[Note:  All players in the table are ranked by overall grade within their round grouping, however, the round groupings are based on where this player will likely be drafted based on where teams are currently selecting in the draft.  Therefore a player is ranked within a group by his level of ability, but players in nearby groupings may have higher or lower actual grades, despite being in a different group.  Confusing enough for you? --Styg]
