Well, Our Reps Are Looking At Coples Says Sorensen

Butch Davis was great at recruiting, poo at coaching. Look how much NFL talent UNC has put out over the last 5 years or so, kind of remarkable, unfortunately they just can't put it to use when they're still in school.

I don't think any of them have amounted to much.

If the media is saying Coples, it probably won't be then. Outside of Cam, when was the last time we selected anyone in the first round that any reporter said we would?

2011: Everybody knew Cam was the pick by the time the draft came around, that was a no-brainer.

2010: No Pick

2009: No Pick

2008: Picked Jonathon Stewart, everybody said to pick Ryan Clady or Chris Williams. (Also traded back in to get Otah)

2007: Picked Jon Beason, everybody said Greg Olsen or Brandon Merriweather

2006: Picked DeAngelo Williams, everybody said Lendale White

2005: Picked Thomas Davis, everybody said Derrick Thomas

And so on and so on.

I would be ecstatic with Coples if he makes it to the 9 spot. Motivational problems won't be there under RR's watch. He's not going to let a top pick underachieve like our last coach let our last star DE underachieve. Pass rush is the key to having an impact on defense. With Edwards coming back at DT, we should be slightly above average there. McClain/Fua have to get better (unless they are the :jc: of DTs...). Shirley, Neblett, Kearse. None are superstars, but we can get by with a steady DT rotation so long as Sweet Ron is healthy. Across from CJ at end, we have nothing. Hardy homers might hate me, but he's nothing special. Average against the pass, horrid against the run. Insert Coples and we have a DE tandem that can send Matt Ryan back to the test tube that he was conceived in. Hardy can help on passing downs. With a trio of CJ, Hardy and Coples, our pass rush would be damn scary. Add McClain developing as an interior rusher like he was drafted for and watch out. 2nd round pick can go to CB or FS.

Then we can all crack open the Strawberry Andre when Cam hoists that SB trophy above his head.

you can talk about his rush defense, but you apparently didn't register how good his pass rush ability was this year... as a 2nd year player.

Coples is probably the one player ,if available @9, who we can trade back with and pick up an extra 2 or 3. If they think a CB or DT will be there on the next 8-10 picks, I see this as a real possibility. The 2nd and 3rd round are full of starters for the Panthers.

I don't understand why people care about the brands. What does it matter? If he becomes a premier end and can help us get to the final dance i don't give a poo what's on his arms.

I think he is the odds on favorite for our pick at 9. Rivera has says he wants a pass rush and Coples would provide one if not this year then next. I don't think he is the best option for us but what do I know. It is Rivera's team and he has to live with the results of his choices. So I am fine with whoever he picks. Just because I opt for other picks doesn't mean he isn't right in the end. We won't know that until a few years down the road.

As far as brands, this is how they usually look.

Coples' brands just came out ugly! I'm a part of the same fraternity and have the same arm brands

Topic-wise, I'm really starting to warm up to the idea of draft Coples..

I know Coples is the 'stud' of the pack & kind of a consensus to most draftniks, BUT...how often do guys who have given up in tough times AND have a history of poor work ethic succeed in the NFL. Buyer beware. I would rather a high character guy who has had exceptional production in college, but who may not be as 'naturally' gifted.
