Draft Day 2: Player Profile: Quincy Black

Quincy Black - 6015, 240, 4.42, New Mexico(OLB/MLB)

Attended Harper College near Chicago (IL) before coming to the Lobos and has all the physical tools you look for. His athleticism and having very good instincts seems to always put him around the ball when a big play is created. Black has the ability to play both inside or outside at the next level due to his speed that allows him the ability to cover alot of ground, vertically and horizontally, against the pass and quickly get to the ball carrier against the run. Black is a versatile defender that has good a burst to close in pursuit and he is a great blitzer . His open-field tackling skills are phenomenal, his target rarely slips by him; supposedly he only has five missed tackles this season. Against the pass he is fluid and does a tremendous job in coverage. He is very good at locating the ball. Great motor. Smart with solid intangibles...
He is relatively new to his LOBO position so he still lacks elite instincts and does not have a defined position yet. Despite being a JUCO defensive end he needs to work on his pass rushing technique and moves. He's a good two-way defender that needs to translate some of his weight-room strength onto the field, so he needs to do a better job versus the run. Especially at the point of attack as he can get turned around or pushed to the side if hit by an unblocked fullback or tight end. He needs to make better use of his hands to get off blocks or when trying to maintain his balance. Footwork and technique are sub par. Does not play as fast as he ran in workouts.
Quincy is a very intriguing developmental guy, has size and athleticism that rivals former Michigan State linebacker Julian Peterson, unfortunately he lacks the Julian's pass-rushing talent. His athleticism makes him a playmaker granting him the ability to cover tons of ground, vertically and horizontally, against the pass and quickly get to the ball carrier against the run. With his superior tackling skills and speed I think it would be best if he made the complete transition to strong safety. Cover 2 scheme middle linebacker thanks to his speed and cover skills. A bit of an underachiever? Still has upside.
Has all the physical tools you look for and he was a true workout warrior at the Scouting Combine...Has a 40+-inch vertical leap...A very intriguing developmental guy who may get pushed up draft boards in such a weak year for the linebacker position.
