QUINTON COPLES
Defensive end, North Carolina
Coples is a very intriguing player. At 6-6 and 284 pounds, NFL teams are likely dreaming of the damage Coples can do to an opposing offense. He ran a 4.78 40 at the Combine, so he has the speed to be an effective pass rusher. And his size makes him an imposing run stopper. Coples had 10 sacks in 2010 and followed that with 7.5 sacks in 2011 for North Carolina. Coples, who had a 92 grade at the Combine, could end up being a top 10 pick based on his size and athletic ability.
