Biography: Part-time starter the past three seasons who posted 41/536/3 as a senior after junior totals of 11/117.
Positives: Well-sized tight end with a solid game. Quickly releases off the line into pass routes or run blocks, immediately gets to top speed, and displays solid pass catching hands. Moves well about the field, adjusts to the errant throw, and makes the reception in stride. Looks the pass into his hands. Solid strength as a blocker. Gets out to the second level and removes linebackers from the action. Seals defensive lineman from plays with good body positioning.
Negatives: Lacks the deep speed or ability to consistently create mismatches down the field. Average production until last season. Has had off the field issues in the past.
Analysis: Quarless is a solid athlete that's been productive as a pass catcher and blocker. Lacks the ability to be a number one tight end at the next level yet has enough skill to eventually develop into a second player at the position.
