Quinn Meinerz

Height: 6’3″

Weight: 320 lbs

Strengths: Playing at DIII Wisconsin-Whitewater, it was evident that Quinn Meinerz was a man among boys. A purveyor of grizzly bear-esque strength, if Meinerz had you squared up, it was over. Displays a solid and sometimes dominant anchor. When engaged one on one, he doesn’t lose the leverage battle. Uses his strong hands in a violent manner, able to knock down defenders with a club. Meinerz is a smooth mover in a straight line moving up to the second level.

Weaknesses: While strength is Meinerz’s forte, agility and flexibility are not. He isn’t a really good athlete. Shows clunky footwork when moving laterally. Has a tendency to over extend and lean forward in his blocks causing him to miss and end up on the ground. Plays with a really wide base that hurts his ability to move quickly. Lacks spatial awareness in the open field that will cause him to completely miss blockable defenders.

One of the tough parts about evaluating a player at a lower level of college is the level of competition. How will it translate to the NFL when they are playing against division three athletes? In the situation of Quinn Meinerz, you can compare it to how he handles the week of the Senior Bowl. Down in Mobile, Alabama, the dominance on the tape was verified. Meinerz handled much better caliber athletes the same way he handled those from St. John’s and Mary Hardin Baylor.
