Honestly, I'm not that concerned about WR in this class. I like Quick and he'd be a nice, flashy addition to the class because of his ranking and offers.
But I'd much rather seem them use the spot on a quality player at a position of higher need (DT, OL, DB).
I'm most concerned about recruiting for the secondary. That's where the biggest upgrade is needed, IMO (Need to have enough good players to be able to go into a dime package - which means 7-8 guys you feel comfortable playing).
They don't have any DBs committed, but there are four ATHs. I know Donavohn Jones and Aarion Penton are slotted for S and CB, respectively (Penton is very EJ Gaines-esque, IMO). Not sure about Anthony Sherrils (could be CB or WR).
And Chase Abbington is a real question. He wants to play RB/offense and likely starts there. But he definitely looks like the type of S they need to add to improve. Big, strong, fast enough to be nasty against the run or in coverage.
I'd love to see them adopt a 3 CB, 3 S dime package, with someone like Abbington being used out of the slot like they have done in the past with William Moore, etc. (though those were out of nickel looks). It would greatly improve pass coverage (and options) vs. having a second linebacker lined up over a slot. And probably not be a significant drawback against a spread run attack.
