NFL Draft Report

By Joe Buscaglia

DE Quinton Coples, North Carolina

DE Quinton Coples #90
North Carolina
6'6", 272 lbs., 21 years old
Kinston, NC
55 total tackles, 7.5 sacks (10 in '10, 5 in '09, 1 in '08)


- Physically imposing, strong upper and lower half controls blockers at times.
- Terrific inside rip move, violent use of hands.
- Disrupts more plays than he gets stats for with an array of moves.
- Can fight through double teams.
- Surveys the scene pre-snap and anticipates snap well. Very smart.

- Can get fooled by blocking scheme at times. When blockers want him to go inside, he'll follow.
- Does he want it enough? Seemed to hold back at times during senior season.

Special Notes:
- Plays all over the line. 7-technique on right or left, 3-technique.
- Dominant first quarter against Missouri in Independence Bowl.

Projection: Top 15 Pick
- Has all the tools to dominate, but motivation is the biggest question mark.
