    Defensive end Robert Quinn and defensive tackle Marvin Austin have become members of an interesting fraternity: projected high picks in the NFL draft despite losing their last collegiate season for whatever reason.

    The two defensive prospects missed all of the 2010 campaign as punishment for accepting gifts from agents. Subsequently, the severe sanctions left the two players without the ability to improve their football talents in a team-oriented, supervised situation. While each player had to find a way to stay in shape and hope that the work put in would hit the mark when it was time for the pre-draft process, circumstances like these make evaluators’ jobs a little more difficult.

    IMO, There are four N. Carolina players that are going to be really good pros.

    IMO, Austin's one of the most talented players in the draft. Doesn't fit the Cowboy's scheme, but he's got a lot of talent.

    If you watch him in drills, he moves really well for 310. And I suspect he's a worker. He benched 225 38 times at the combine AFTER SITTING OUT A YEAR.
