A Quick Look at Quickel

FOX Sports NEXT has the update on North Little Rock linebacker Tim Quickel from Arkansas. He showed and tested well at the Dallas Nike Football Training Camp. He is looking to get a jump start on the recruiting process. He talked about where things stand at the moment.

There's always one.

At every camp and combine, there is at least one player who catches the attention of media and spectators after a solid performance. AT the At the Dallas (TX) Nike Football Training Camp, North Little Rock (AR) linebacker Tim Quickel was that guy.

In drills and in testing, Quickel was on the scene, making himself known and making plays. Soon enough, it could lead to a look or two.

"I have no colleges looking at me at this time, but it's a working progress. I have a couple letters from Missouri but that is it," Quickel said.

Interesting note is that the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Quickel showed that he is more than capable of playing at football's highest level. Where he was most effective at the Dallas Nike Camp was in the one-on-one drills where the linebacker came off the edge rushing the quarterback while taking on the running back.

Quickel was quick in his first step and used his hands well to be able to successfully get to the quarterback on several occasions. This is what Quickel said is the strength of his game.

"I think I did good. It was good competition, but I think I was one of the top linebackers here," Quickel said. "I felt good coming off the edge in one-on-ones blocking that was good."

Last season, when Quickel said he played at Central, he had 75 tackles, two sacks and an interception. He said this off season and summer he will try to make camps at Arkansas and Ole Miss with his trainer.
