2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
With outstanding size at 6'6'' and 285 pounds, Coples projects to be a star end in a 4-3 scheme at the next level. He has speed in the 4.7 range in the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.67 from that distance. Even though he is a versatile defender who can play both end and tackle, Coples needs to improve against the run. Coples would also do well to develop a signature move that he can use to get past offensive tackles since he does not have the speed to consistently blow by them (although simply overpowering them is an option). He appears to have established himself as the best defensive end in the 2012 draft class. Look for him to go off the board in the Top 10 overall in the upcoming draft.
