It would make sense for us to be interested in someone with the skillset of Coples, who has the upside to be one of the best 34 Ends in football. Compares favorably to Calais Campbell from AZ.
Don't think you should expect to see him there at the 14th spot. Most mocks have him going before we get on the clock. If he happens to be there, of course we have to consider it. But until the 15th, there is still time for college players to declare for the draft, so anything an change.
Coples "abilities" are unquestioned, but he takes plays off it seems. I want a full out every play type. Maybe we settle for a bit less "ability" and a bit more heart?
