A little more than a month ago, Aaron Donald was selected by his peers as the 92nd-best player in the NFL. Tonight, fellow defensive lineman Robert Quinn did him 48 spots better after his fourth season.
A year ago, Quinn was ranked #13 overall coming off of a breakout 2013 season in which he amassed 19 sacks to go with seven forced fumbles and two recoveries. A dip in production saw him tumble in most rankings, though he still finished with an impressive 10.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. With four fellow first-round selections throughout the Rams' 2015 defensive line, he's the showcase of the Rams' best unit.
Based on his 2014 season alone, Quinn came in at 92 on the Pro Football Focus 101. Donald made the top 20 at #18 overall after just one NFL season.
