    Quinn measured in at 6'6” and a lean 280 pounds.

    Quinn's unofficial time in the 40-yard dash was 5.03. Other unofficial numbers include 30 reps of 225 pounds on the bench, 33.5 inch arms, 9'3” broad jump, 30.5” vertical jump, 4.46-4.55 range on the short shuttle, and 7.45 in the 3-cone drill.

    Quinn played three years at BC before leaving the team for personal reasons and transferring to C.W. Post. Playing defensive tackle at over 300 pounds for most of his college career

    At the combine, Wharton, who set national powerlifting records as a teen, showed his strength, completing 30 reps in the 225 pound bench press, more than all but one linebacker and three linemen in a group of over 80 professional football hopefuls.

    WHARTON

    Wharton showed off his speed with the fastest 40 yard dash time at the combine, finishing in 4.47. He also proved one of the most agile, turning in a 4.06 in the shuttle, the third best time, behind a pair of cornerbacks. He put his explosiveness on display with a 40' vertical leap, tied for third in the entire field, while his 10-5 broad jump was the second best at the combine.


    Dustin has been the hardest working athlete I have ever had the pleasure of coaching," Sports Performance Coach Carl Johnson said. "His attitude and work ethic has been infectious and inspired everyone else to become stronger and more consistent in their training. I wasn't surprised on his combine stats, because those are the numbers he's been putting up for the last three years. He has demonstrated that strength is the key ingredient to being a more explosive faster and powerful athlete."

    Wharton has also provided the on-field credentials during his career on the Hilltop. The 2013 Preseason Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year is also a two-time Patriot League First Team selection, while moving into third place in career tackles (280) during his senior season. His versatility on the field has allowed the Hoyas' coaches to move the 6-0, 216 pound athlete between outside linebacker, safety and defensive end.



    "I've never coached a more versatile, more explosive athlete than Dustin Wharton," said Georgetown Head Football Coach Rob Sgarlata, who served as the Hoyas' defensive coordinator through Wharton's career. "Goal line he played safety, first and second down he'd play linebacker and third down he would rush the passer. He has an unparalleled work ethic and just as a person, the work he's done in this community has been tremendous."
    But his impressive combine performance may have created enough of a stir to help Wharton get to the next level, wherever teams eventually want to play move him on the field.

    "To be honest I am not too sure what position teams want me to play at the next level," Wharton said. "I've heard safety, nickel, linebacker, etc., so I just feel I have to be prepared for anything

    I'll take Mr. Cliff Harris if we are projecting current or former Cowboys onto Mr. Wharton.

    Has he been injured?? Wharton will be a WILL in Marinelli's scheme. This kid arrives at the ball with violent intentions. At worst, will be a ST demon.

    Clown posse??? Not sure what you think you know about me, but I don't post to fish for likes, plus you have over a 1,000 more likes than I do. Not understanding the hostility.

    I'm not referring to your post. I'm referring to the post you responded to.

    Yes, there are a couple of posters that continually post negative stuff because they have a following that loves it. One of them even admitted to it back when he was about to cross the 1000 like barrier.
