Quarterback Brayden Tyler Quinn is a professional player presently playing for the Denver Broncos of NFL. Nicknamed as Brady, he was chosen by the Cleveland Browns in round one of the 2007 NFL Draft. He was the 22nd pick overall. Prior to going pro, Quinn had an impressive career as the field general for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.

At Notre Dame, he completed 59.9-percent of his passes (929 of 1,602), throwing 95 touchdowns and 39 interceptions. He rushed for six touchdowns and did not fumble once. His overall rating was 134.40. In 2005, he won the Sammy Baugh Trophy. In his senior season in 2006, he received the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, Maxwell Award, Cingular All-America Player of the Year and MSNBC Most Valuable Player Award.

In his first season with Cleveland, Quinn saw action in one game, throwing eight passes and completing three (37.5-percent). His rating was 56.8. He threw no touchdowns and no interceptions. On 14th March 2010, Brady was traded to the team of Denver Broncos to replace Peyton Hillis, in sixth round in 2011 NFL Draft.

Quinn, who stands six-foot-three and weighs 235 pounds, has a fine frame for a NFL quarterback. His footwork, pocket presence and above average arm strength allow him to be a fine pocket passer. He’s a great deep ball passer, accurate and powerful. His timing is very good and he’s got a penchant for throwing balls that are catchable. He needs to relax more in the pocket and not press so much to make the big play. In college, Quinn could make or break a game. In the pros, he has to stay away from making the wrong decision or the rash choice. Quinn has a great work ethic, is intelligent and has excellent intangibles. He’s presently second on the Cleveland depth chart.
