    What did he do to get rated so low? Is he too slow for his size or what? For a guy who produced at a big time program, it's surprising to see him not only not drafted, but considered a marginal UDFA. Anybody know the deal?

    Alot of it probably has to do with his age (he's 27).

    His size (5'9") and his age (27).

    I read somewhere the Bengals already picked him up as an UDFA.

    It's all abouth his age. He is a small, slot-type WR and teams are not going to use a pick on a guy like that if he is 26-27 yrs old. He will get signed as an UFA, but teams just aren't going to use a pick on a guy like that. Still, I think he will have a good pro career.

    I saw him on one of the networks sitting on his couch till the bitter end. It was weird that Bill Cosby was there since they are not related. No way in hell I would let cameras in my house unless I was REALLY sure I was gonna go somewhere. That happened to a couple of guys unfortunately.

    They are friends. It's kind of a funny story.

    Good luck to Quan. He is a great person.

    They were at the draft together. Bill Cosby invites 1 prospect a year to watch the draft with him and this year he chose Quan Cosby.

    i knew he was older, but i didn't realize he was 27. explains it, i guess. still, you would have figured that his fiesta bowl performance would have at least gotten him drafted.

    I actually figured that he would not get drafted because of his age, but that he would be a very hot commodity as an UFA. He's got talent no doubt, teams are just very picky with their picks sometimes and don't want to draft a guy with "no upside".
