ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — The Rams used their second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to get Brian Quick out of Appalachian State University. The No. 33 to start the second round of the draft marks just the first of three in the round for the Rams.

At 6-3, 222 lbs., Quick was a fifth-year senior for the Mountaineers. He started 36 out of 54 career games catching 202 passes for 3,418 yards and 31 touchdowns.  Heading into the draft, most scouts and analysts compare Quick’s skills to that of All-Pro receiver Brandon Marshall.

The only season for the Mountaineers that he did not make a Southern Conference honorary team was his redshirt sophomore season when he caught 61 passes for a team-best 982 yards.  His best season was his last receiving All-Southern Conference first-team recognition with 71 catches, 1096 yards and 11 touchdowns.

From Columbia, South Carolina, he was a basketball player before moving his skills to the football field.  The Rams are hopeful that his basketball skills, which are reach and elevation, help him go up and over opponents.
