Cox will be a good DT, I have no doubts about that.
But taking him at #9 is a reach if better players are on the board, like Coples or Keuckly.

Also Brockers has been in the SEC with LSU since '09... just saying.


How is he a reach? I'm willing to bet in a week or 2 he might be projected ahead of 9.

He is a reach because he has done nothing to prove he is a top 10 talent and for that matter, no defensive tackle has.

Do you even watch college football?

He is a reach because he, just like all the top DTs in this draft is a project. He is the best of the bunch but will he be impactual from day 1 where he is the next best DT other than Edwards on the roster, I doubt that. He has the potential to be a probowl level DT but for me to put him ahead of Coples and Keuchly, who are more NFL ready than him, is quite simply, a reach.

Facts on whom? We all know that Kuechly was the best LB in college last year and Coples is arguably the best pass rusher in the draft. What kind of facts do you want?

His motor is what i notice first. He plays positions all down the line which is nice. But nothing is a clear cut separation between him and and the other dt's like coples and stills.

Oh really says the kid who can only attack someone personally, call for facts, ignore them, then cease to provide his own facts.

I've told you what a defensive tackle's job is countless times (main priority is to stop the run, second priority is to get pressure on the quarterback and keep him in the pocket).

By the way he is a reach because most scouts have him labeled around the 14-19 area.

Here is some more links, try opening it this time.

Why is the best DT in the Sec a reach.

Cox had 56 tackles 5 sacks and Voted Dlinemen of the week 4 times. All while missing 2 games and playing against SEC competition.

These are Coples combine #

Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
Height: 6-6. Weight: 284.
40 Time: 4.72. 10-Yd Split: 1.63.
Bench: 25.
Vertical: 31.5. Broad: 9-1.
Arm: 33 1/4. Hand: 10 1/8.
Projected Round (2012): Top-15 Pick.



These are Cox's #

Fletcher Cox*, DT, Mississippi State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 298.
40 Time: 4.79. 10-Yd Split: 1.63.
Bench: 30.
Vertical: 26. Broad: 8-7.
Arm: 34 1/2.
Projected Round (2012): 1.



Not much difference except one is a DE and one is a DT. Not to mention nobody is ?ing Cox's motor.


So again I ask how is Cox's a reach.

Since when did we draft players off the combine? If we want to do that, we might as get Dontari Poe a uniform...

Coples is literally a one trick pony. An effective pony for sure. Cox is very diverse. Which, to me at least, makes him much more attractive.

I could care less about Coples or Cox at pick number nine when I feel like Luke Kuechly address a need and gives us good value with the 9th pick in the draft.

Now I wouldn't be upset with Coples with the 9th pick but I would feel much more comfortable taking him or Cox if we were able to trade down to the 13th, 14th, or 15th pick.

For me, I am down to two people... Morris Claiborne (if he falls) and Luke Kuechly.
