I was think what were to happen if Quinn were to skip the Combine and decide to hold a practice of his own. Would this increase his chances of falling. Seems he doesnt know what to do at this point read the article below.

Also it seems like we really want this guy. Check out this quote from the PBP:

The Dolphins remain intrigued in Brady Quinn. Quinn will likely be gone when the Dolphins make their first-round pick at No. 9. But there is talk among NFL scouts that he could fall in the draft because of his lack of success in big games. The Dolphins, who also might consider trading up in the draft, likely know a lot more about Quinn's strengths and weaknesses.

I don't see how missing the Combine would do anything to help his draft stock. Scouts don't put nearly as much emphasis on private workouts than they do on the combine, so a good private workout probably wouldn't affect his stock if he skips on the combine. He is a better football player than he is an athlete, so I wouldn't expect him to truly impress during workouts. His value lies more in his smart decision making than anything else.

If i remember right it effected Lendale White last year when he didn't work at the combine.

I think if anything, him missing the combine will only guarantee him available at #9.

i think quinn does the combine simply to shut down some of the critics that have been on him of late.

Heres a little thing to ponder over. Let me know what you all think.

Even though Quinn said he wants to play for the Browns, could it be that he knows the Browns wont draft him. Could it be he knows his stock is falling a little? Miami has a strong interest him. Maybe, just maybe could it be that Quinn knows Miami will be the team to draft him and he likes that idea. So much to the point that if he misses out on the combine to ensure he is available at #9 to Miami, hes willing to do it. Just a thought. Would like to hear any other opinions on it.

I think no way would Quinn want to drop himself even a single spot in the draft because of the money he could potentially lose.

He definitely would lose a bit. In fact, I hope he does skip the Combine so the odds of him dropping increase exponentially.

I think we do know quite a bit on Quinn because Mueller scouted him last year and we're interviewing Shea, who's helping Quinn.

I might have been confusing with my wording, but what I was trying to say was that skipping the comine is NOT a good move when you have something to prove.

He isnt going to skip the combine. He is working out with Dwayne Jarret to get ready for it, why would he skip it unless he's injured?

Yea, exactly. He has too much to lose right now by not going. Although if he didn't go, he'd be more likely to be there at 9. :evil:

Not a bad situation at all, that is for us.

Not going to happen. Why? Seems like the only one's who skip the combine do so for one of 3 reasons. 1) they're hurt and need to delay until later; 2) they are ego maniacs and want all the scout attention on them only; or 3) They feel they can get better #'s in their own environment than at the combine. All 3 of these reasons put off scouts a bit and hurt their stock. However, there's always the exception to the rule and thus why guys still keep doing it. I don't see Brady falling into any of these categories (except maybe #3), so I bet he'll attend the combine.

Quinn will probably just do certain drills, but not others (mainly the running drills).

If he were not to compete, it wouldn't kill him. He might fall just outside the top 10, but the top guys on the board all mostly defense an there are a few teams that will trade up for a difference maker.

Matt Leinart missed the combine and he dropped, the combine really helped Jay Cutler last year

Leinart had to contend with Young, Cutler, and Croyle. Quinn's biggest rivals at QB are Russell and Smith.

ask david carr if he wouldn't have minded dropping in the draft a bit, hindsight being what it is...

if Quinn missed the combine, there would be a 90% chance of him falling to us

actually, Quinn's biggest competition is Russell then the next tier is Stanton,Edwards,Kolb then Smith.

Right, and I'm sure in hindsight Eli Manning would have played for the Chargers. What I'm saying is that no one would be willing to give up the money and clout associated with being a top pick to fall to a team they liked. Did you see how pissed Rothlisberger was when he fell to the Steelers, despite the fact that it was the ideal situation for him? It's all about the Benjamins.

Quinn will be at the Combine and participate in all the passing drills. Depending on his knee, he may or may not run which he'll probably do at one of Notre Dame Pro Days.

Guys that are locks for top 5 picks rarely show up for the full combine drills. I would be shocked to see Russell, Johnson, or Thomas set foot anywhere near the combine unless they know for certain that they will nail the various drills associated with their positions (ie great 40 or Thomas to bench 225lbs 35-40 times). Given Quinn's stock has fallen I do expect him to participate in all the drills to strengthen his position and erase any doubts people have. If he has a mediocre combine, he will be there at 9. If he lights it up, we better start thinking of the Best Player Available as Quinn won't be there.

FWIW, Kirwan said that Quinn's personal workout would solidify him as a top 10 pick.

I bet that Quinn skips the combine

I agree. Quinn is a very good QB. I am impressed by the things he accomplished in ND. I believe that he carried the team thoughout many of the games. In miami, he will thrive. We have a great defense, and we will continue to work to improve our OL. I think that adding him, and improving our Recv Corps (draft or FA), will help us get back to the playoff shape. Plus, we need a franchise QB.

On February 2, 2007, Microsoft announced they will chronicle Quinn's weekly routine of workouts and training sessions leading up to the draft on April 28. Quinn will blog every Friday, beginning February 9, on Xbox.com

Last Lions are projecting OT - Thomas or QB - Quinn as their pick
