Bryant dropped because of character concerns as well.
I didn't know Coples had character (drugs, immorality, attitude, etc,) concerns, but that he is not dependable on the field. He has ability and potential but he doesn't have production. I want somebody dependable when I go to war. It is like the old saying that a "man who won't read is no better off than one who can't read." A man who won't use his God given talents is no better off than a person who don't have those abilities - on the field.
Coples is probably the most talented non skill position player in the draft. Yet his production is barely above average according to what I read. I'll take the person with a little less ability who has the tenacity and determination where he will not be denied and will not be defeated over the entitlement people any day.
