SB Nation New York 2011 NFL Mock Draft: With Sixth Pick, Cleveland Selects ...

Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina.

The Cleveland Browns face a choice here between wide receiver Julio Jones of Alabama and Quinn, a pass-rushing defensive end. Cleveland is transitioning from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3, and that makes getting player for that system a priority, particularly defensive linemen.

Among the defensive linemen who might be considered at this point in the draft, Quinn seems to be rated slightly higher than Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers or Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley.

Draft Countdown points out that Cleveland General Manager Mike Holmgren coached Reggie White in Green Bay, so he understands the impact on an edge rusher.

Draft Countdown summarizes Quinn this way:

A special talent who was viewed as a potential No. 1 overall pick prior to being suspended --- Possesses the tools needed to become a truly elite pass rusher in the NFL.

Up next will be the San Francisco 49ers with the seventh overall pick.
