2012 NFL Mock Draft: Carolina Selects Quinton Coples at No. 1
With the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Carolina Panthers choose… Quinton Coples?
The Panthers drafting Andrew Luck doesn’t really make much sense at all. They are expected to take quarterback Cam Newton in the 2011 draft, so they will already have their quarterback.
With their quarterback in place, Carolina will then draft the best pass rusher in the nation, Quinton Coples.
I believe Coples will be the next great pass rusher in the NFL. He is incredibly fast and has a knack for getting to the quarterback.
Last season, Coples made 59 tackles and had 10 sacks.
He is very big considering how fast he his, standing 6’6” 270 pounds. He is a very similar player to Mario Williams of the Houston Texans in that he can beat you using his power and his speed.
This pick will not be a popular one, but if Carolina draft Newton in the 2011 draft, it will be the correct pick
