Coples at Senior Bowl

207 posts in this topic

Well, everyone likes Gil Brandt now and he has Coples as a top five prospect, so I guess that settles it.

After watching him at Senior Bowl practice I can't imagine where the finese part of his game is. IMO, without an elite first step or burst power is going to have to be his game. He's a very powerful kid.

3 of his top 5 in 2008 are bust.

2-of his top 5 are bust in 2009 and Everette Brown was # 12 best prospect.

Even Gil makes mistakes nobody is perfect. So what is settled In you're opinion?

Tony Pauline, draft expert for SI.com, said UNC coaches have been telling scouts Coples played cautiously his senior season to avoid getting hurt - a charge Coples denies. Coples said his production fell off initially because of his move to the right side, where he faced better offensive tackles, many of whom had help blocking Coples.

"I was in a situation most people wouldn't understand. I experienced double teams, triple teams, like I've never experienced before in my career," Coples said. "It was a big adjustment. I learned a lot and it helped me mature and become more of a professional as a man on and off the field."

Coples has had a good week at the Senior Bowl practices, beating blockers during 1-on-1 drills and looking like the kind of impact pass-rusher that draws big contracts in the quarterback-centric NFL.

That's quite an indictment if his coaches are saying it.

i'm telling you, i don't care what kind of amazing talent they have, if their coaches are telling me that they have an amazing work ethic and drive i don't want to bother with them in the first round, esp. that early.

that's a recipe for bust right there. you wonder why people bust in the first round, there it is.

I am not too worried about who the Panthers draft at 8/9. I think this staff will take a no nonsense approach to the interviews and really get into what each prospect wants to accomplish at the next level. I just want impact players.
