Shows raw technique and has little experience against elite competition.
Quillen has the height and athleticism to be an NFL receiver. He could have used another year of college experience but could prove to be a sleeper in the '06 class. He likely will be selected toward the end of Day 2 but could rise to the middle rounds with good predraft workouts.
Quillen will skip his senior season and is training in Naples, Fla.
"I had to do the best thing for my family," said Quillen, who is married with two children. "That was number one on my list. I felt that financially, I just couldn't stay in school another year."
A junior from New Orleans whose nickname is "Tree," he is the first Louisiana-Monroe player to leave early for the NFL since cornerback Pat Dennis departed after the 1999 season. Dennis was a fifth-round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2000.
Quillen said he hopes to be a first-day pick. "I have my report back from some of them saying I may go as early as the third round if I'm lucky. I may go as late as the fifth," he said. "I'm pretty confident I'll go on that first day. I'm not really worried about where I will go. I know I can go play in that league right now."
Quillen caught 32 passes for 514 yards and three touchdowns as a freshman in 2002 but missed the 2003 season with a knee injury. He bounced back to lead the Indians with 44 catches for 758 yards and seven touchdowns in 2004.
As a junior, Quillen moved into the top 10 on ULM's career lists for touchdown receptions (19), catches (121) and receiving yardage (1,979). He recorded a catch in 30 straight games since midway through his freshman season. Quillen has signed with an agent.
