Rams Select UNC's Robert Quinn

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams addressed depth on the defensive line, drafting pass-rushing end Robert Quinn of North Carolina with the 14th pick of the NFL draft.

The 20-year-old Quinn is 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds and left after his junior season. In 25 career games, he had 13 sacks and 25 1/2 tackles for loss.

Quinn was one of three North Carolina players ruled permanently ineligible last fall for receiving improper benefits in October.

    When is the NCAA going to come down on the tarholes, are they too caught up with Ohio State? NC has become the teflon dons of college football.

      the NCAA has already ruled against UNC they declared half the team ineligible last year. That was the penalty.

    EZU thinks that Dwayne Harris will get drafted. It's too bad that he MAY be a 6th rounder at best.

      Good analysis. You should pass on your scouting report to the NFL. Here's another analysis, you MAY have a high school education, at best.

    Anonymous all you are doing is make UNC look bad from a fan base. We Tar Heels (Ram's Club supporters) don't claim you as a true Tar Heel. This has nothing to do with ECU so go away.

        yes he played and the ACC IS their conference, sounds like you have a HUGE case of jealousy against UNC, rightfully so. most people who are not UNC fans are very jealous of UNC and as I said, rightfully so because they ARE one of the top sports programs in all of college sports, GO HEELS AND BRING ON THE JEALOUS HATERS...WE LOVE IT!!! WE CONSIDER IT A COMPLIMENT!!! ANYBODY ELSE OUT THEIR JEALOUS OF THE TAR HEELS? WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU TOO!!

          Quinn received a lifetime ban from the NCAA. Dirty, dirty program at UNC.

          UNC is one of a few reasons why this state is in such a huge deficit to begin with thanks to those idiot politicians who went to law school there. UNC should be stripped of its law school. UNC is bad for the state of North Carolina economic wise, especially when you get east of I-95.

          As a Florida Gator alumnus living in Raleigh, I know for a fact not everybody is jealous of UNC. UNC football is a joke just like everybody else in this state. If you want real college football, the SEC is where it's at and the state of Florida is where it's at. One school has both in common, the University of Florida.
