Default Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

6'6" 285:

A tall, long armed, athletic defensive lineman with a strong looking frame, he's pretty much how you want to draw up the ideal defensive end prospect. Played a lot inside on the UNC defense because of depth issues, and displays the initial burst off the snap and pad level to surprisingly hold up well inside. Has a tendency to get upright through contact at times, which will cause him to get washed out of plays sometimes. However, he possesses natural flexibility sitting into his stance and has good snap awareness, a great first step and solid consistency extending his arms and gaining leverage. Has the natural power to anchor inside one-on-one and is a bear to block through the play because of his length. He needs to do a better job disengaging quicker, at times is slow to react to the inside run, but certainly has the skill set to do so. Is a strong anchor player on the edge vs. the run game. He possesses the first step to threaten the C-gap, using a powerful club move in order to gain separation and keep his pad level down through contact. Is a powerful puncher and possesses the upper body strength to simply jolt offensive lineman through contact when he wants to shed. Plays the game with bad intentions in pursuit, his motor is a bit inconsistent, but he likes contact and works hard to chase the football and create collisions.

Possesses the skill set to simply not allow himself to be blocked for long, but he's still putting things together as a pass rusher. He has the talent to be dominant though, possessing a great first step both inside and out. Coils up well into his stance, rushes from a four-point stance, but rushes with his ball side foot back, allowing him to quickly eat up space and get toward the edge. He possesses the power in his punch to routinely jolt defenders and moves effortlessly laterally when trying to side step blocks and get up the field. Exhibits the burst to threaten the edge and does a decent job for his size dropping his pad level when trying to turn the corner. However he still gets a bit upright through contact, which takes away from his initial burst when closing. He doesn't quite know how to use his hands well enough in order to disengage initially, and is more just a puncher who has the length to create space and will side step. He needs to add more of a pass rushing arsenal to his game and certainly has the talent to do so. Can threaten gaps inside as a three technique as well, keeping his base down initially, and again works hard into contact in order to keep himself clean.

Was investigated by the NCAA about his attendance at a post draft party. Displayed some motor/passion problems as a senior, looked to be trying not to get hurt at times and wasn't always invested in the game.

Impression: Can be as good as he wants to be in the NFL. The game comes very easy to him and he can be dominant if he learns to use his arms even better to slip blocks in the pass game, but with more time I expect that to improve. The sky is the limit as long as he's willing to work at his trade and keep his motor running.

Rex Ryan asked Quinton Coples to participate in the LB drills in addition to DL drills at UNC pro day. Coples catching everything but looks stiff in the LB drills. Had a good showing in the DL work.

Coples said he thought scouts might ask him to do LB drills b/c they asked him at combine but his legs were gone. Dropped only 1 pass

Im on the fence about him... I really do think hes going to be a bust, more than courtney upshaw even..., I really hope we trade up for ingram, but if not, Upshaw looks more promising then Coples... Then again if anyone is going to get this kid to play it would be Rex.. But i would rather take that chance on someone of the likes of say Vontaze Burfict in the 6th round that way if it doesnt work out it was no big loss, there is just to much risk with it being the 1st roundpick... we really need a homerun this year at the draft.

• Quinton Coples. At 6-foot-6, 284 pounds, with 4.7 speed, Coples is straight out of central casting. One personnel executive told me Coples is a "top-10 talent," but there are questions about his motor, so he's likely to fall into the teens, according to the exec. Perhaps sensing the slide, the Jets brought him in for a visit, gathering 11th-hour information just in case. They did the same thing in 2006 with D'Brickashaw Ferguson, inviting him in to meet with non-football staffers. At the time, there were questions about his passion for football. Coples would be a risk/reward pick.
