2011 NFL Pro Days Schedule: Robert Quinn, Marvin Austin In The Spotlight

The 2011 NFL Pro Days schedule continues today with Hawaii, North Carolina, and Stephen F. Austin getting their players ready for the 2011 NFL Draft. Hawaii doesn't have a ton of talent going, but they have some skill position players to check out. Most notable would be wide receiver Greg Salas. The prolific Warriors receiver had solid enough measurables at the Combine and will only take part in position drills today.

North Carolina provides one of the more intriguing Pro Days due to the various suspensions some of their players faced this past season. Most notable is Robert Quinn who is probably in play at the seventh overall pick along with four or five other players (at least). Marvin Austin also dealt with a suspension, but for now let's focus on Quinn. The college defensive end would seem best suited to convert to 3-4 outside linebacker at the next level. He has been so impressive at times that even after missing 2010 he's still climbed up mock drafts and Big Boards.

How does Quinn's season on the sidelines sit with folks? As talented as he might be, it seems like players that miss a season take a good deal of time to develop. If the 49ers are spending a first round pick on a guy, do we really want to be waiting a couple years for him to develop? That's not to say a player isn't going to take multiple years even if he hadn't been suspended, but it's an issue to consider. I'm not concerned about the reasons behind the suspension (NCAA has a million issues as it is). I'm just concerned about the time away from the game.
