No. 27 – Glover Quin

Age: 29

Height: 6-foot-0

Weight: 206

College: University of New Mexico

For myself, one word in particular come to mind when I think of Detroit Lions Free Safety Glover Quin.


Quin came up big for the Lions several times in 2014, including interceptions to seal more several victories. He also totaled 71 tackles on the year with seven interception to boot. As a result, he was then voted to the NFL Pro Bowl for the first time in his career.

He’s a great friend of mine, a great teammate.” – Quin on Ihedigbo

I strongly consider Quin underrated when compared to other safeties around the league, and think he is poised to bounce back and have another very productive year in 2015. If Ihedigbo and Detroit are able to come to an agreement it will only make Quin better as well.

If anyone can lead this team to the promised land, it’s Glover Quin. I look for five interceptions and 80 tackles in 2015.
