2011 NFL Mock Draft: Robert Quinn Out Of St. Louis Rams' Reach?

Robert Quinn, sometimes-Rams-pick in the more contrarian 2011 NFL Mock Drafts we highlight here at the sight, had himself quite a Pro Day, according to Draft Breakdown, making major improvements on his NFL Combine 40 time and impressing scouts from a number of teams and, in all likelihood, moving himself for good out of the St. Louis Rams' positioning at 14. Quinn has been a top talent in NFL Draft circles for some time, and having proven he's up to speed after a year out of college football should be all it takes to vault him toward the top 10. 

Plenty of defensive help remains in the draft, if that's the direction the Rams end up going. The most popular pick in Mock Drafts to date has been Aldon Smith, Missouri's impressive defensive end; that pick's local flavor might be enough to soothe fans who were hoping the Rams could find somebody for Sam Bradford to throw to in the first round.
