Poe, Brockers, Upshaw, Coples
This really should have been made as a poll. If I weren't busy at work, I'd do it.
Don't hate the players but no thanks to Poe and Brockers.
Poe! Anyone but Poe. I don't care if he turns out to be an amazing player.
- Dontari Poe or Quinton Coples anywhere in the 1st.
- Vontaze Burfict anywhere in the Draft.
I don't want Coples or Poe in the first round, and don't want Brockers at #14.
I don't want Bruce Irvin until at least round three. His arrest the night after his pro day shows some very poor decision-making, but I think the right atmosphere and a set regimen could help him get himself straightened out.
I don't want LB Vontaze Burfict, OT Mike Adams, CB Cliff Harris, CB Janoris Jenkins, CB Alfonzo Dennard, or anyone else with significant off-the-field issues in any round.
Definitely, Poe... i see some of you dont want Brockers, but i feel that will be our selection at 14.
Upshaw,Ingram, Shea McClellin and I am on the fence with Brockers. He looks good on youtube
consensus seems to be poe and coples
Brokers and Kirkpatrick
Yep, not really hoping for the last three and don't want anything to do with the project Poe.
Coples because he is lazy.
Kirkpatrick because he's overrated.
DeCastro because Silatolu will be a better pro and can be had in the second round....maybe.
Coples or Poe. I will cry.
I can say I'm wary of some of the players who might be available at 14, but I'll give any of them a chance before I cry over the choice.
Guess I prefer an optimistic viewpoint.
With Poe, we would be getting a very big man with great movement skills for his size. He needs work to reach his potential, but his potential is sky-high.
With Brockers, we'd get another big man with potential who was a double-team magnet at LSU.
With Coples, we would be getting a player who showed his dominating ability at the Senior Bowl and might be more motivated to prove people wrong about his attitude than anyone knows.
Now, I'd prefer Cox, DeCastro or Barron at 14 or a trade down into the 20s for someone like Glenn, possibly Konz or Zeitler, but I'm just not going to knock the pick until I try it.
Yep, this would be my 3 as well.
Brockers is a run stuffer and couldnt rush the passer worth jack in college, so he magically is going to start racking up sacks in the pros? Dont think so.
Poe did jack in Conference USA, so he was either taking downs off or getting his arse handed to him by scrubs on a weekly basis. Either way, I am avoiding him like he was the Ebola virus.
Couples, like other posters have stated, looked half asleep most of the time. That tells me that he really didnt want to be out there playing or that he was so out of shape that he was fatigued by the end of the first series. Either way, I am taking a pass on him as well.
My 3 favs..........DeCastro, Barron, Cox.
Upshaw, Ingram, Kirkpatrick and Coples, although I think the chances of us taking any of them are reasonably low.
Brockers is growing on me given what I've read here by SDogo and others whom I trust and I've always been okay with Poe, despite the very real, legitimate concerns everyone has about him.
