Appalachian State WR Brian Quick (6-foot-3 3/8, 215 pounds) has generated quite a buzz in the pre-draft process, and he kept his momentum going with a solid showing at the school’s pro day on March 19. Twenty six teams, the most ever to attend an Appalachian State pro day according to the school, showed up to watch Quick and his teammates.
Quick ran a 4.59-second 40-yard dash into the wind and a 4.53 40 with the wind at his back. But the most important mark was his 1.47-second 10-yard split, which shows he has great initial burst. His best football could be ahead of him, as he played only one year in high school but was a great basketball player.
He also showed in position drills that he is just as fast on the field as he is on paper.
DeAndre Presley (5-9 7/8, 183) also stood out with his performance. The former QB ran 4.55 and 4.47 40-yard dashes and had a 32 1/2-inch vertical leap, 9-foot-7 broad jump, 4.37-second short shuttle, 7.06-second three-cone drill and 7 reps of 225 pounds. He showed his versatility by working out at DB, WR and PR. He caught punts well and looked quick in DB drills.
