Coples is a BEAST!

Coples sucks stay away

Bubba Sparx

Coples is the pick! Deal with it...Lol...

Coples was a bun last season, but ramped it up for the Senior Bowl and the combine so he could maximize his paycheck.

He says, "Draft me. I wasn't lazy last season, I just produced less because I had to shed blocks of better players."

Once he gets his signing bonus, that's the last max-effort you will see from him until the last year of his contract. He's a total fraud. I'd rather see the Panthers draft a Tar Heel basketball player than Coples.

Bull City Dog

Julius Peppers but with less of a work ethic and less of a notion of when to turn it on. Let some team that can use him situationally take him. I'd rather have a starting corner and let Munnerlyn go back to nickel.

Coples has ties to Butchy D, that alone takes away all respect for him. Oh yeah, and his game is lame.

I would trade up and use RG III as a running back...he'll be a bust otherwise especially with the Redskins...Lol..

If Cox is gone, they'll need to take Coples. Panthers desperately need help on the defensive line as demonstrated last season, as it was a joke (poor pass rush and runners having their way) I don't think Blackmon, Kalil or Claibourne falls out of the top 7 (someone will trade up and grab them)... so you take the best player at the most critical need.. and DL is a critical weak link on this team.

BB

If there were no question about Cople's "motor", he would likely go top 5. So in a sense this would be a steal if he pans out as he is capable of.

The folks at UNC are proud to introduce "J-Pep light"....now you can have all the "not trying on every play" you loved in the original, but with HALF the ability....

Hurney loved the original...maybe it's a mancrush?

Cox > Coples.

BB

Peppers would such a freakish physical specimen, he likely felt like he could skate and still produce.. which he did. Coples isn't quite as physically gifted, so likely will play with more effort to maintain elite level numbers. I think he'll do well in the NFL.

Jimbo

Coples or Blackmon are fine
Pinto or Ferrari are fine
Ellen or Gisele Bundchen are fine...

Tom you take Ellen

Copled would have a better fit to match the fat no-name we took second

I still think Carolina will and should take North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples in tonight's NFL draft, unless wide receiver Justin Blackmon falls to them.

But I don't know, and I don't claim to know, what the Panthers will do.

Their greatest need is a pass rusher, and Coples is the most talented pass rusher in the draft. True, Coples has a lot of critics, many in the media. So did Cam Newton, and many of his loudest critics were in the media, too.

Whomever your pick is, enjoy the evening. Maybe see you at Bank of America Stadium. The draft party the Panthers sponsored, for the first time, last season was superb.

Bill Brannon

Let's not hop on Edwards any more. I watched every game last year and on every ball he received, he was surrounded by defensive players. Where were the blockers? Special teams and defense were weaknesses which must be overcome with better coaching and personnel in those areas.
Conversely, Cam couldn't have walked in the end zone on those 5 and 10 yard carries without good execution. Football is a very team oriented sport.

Great call Tom......Coples was not even the first DE selected, not to mention the three DT's taken before him. Great job Panthers in not getting caught up in the faded out blue hype.
