You just proved my point, the draft is a crap shoot as it is, there's no need to add to that risk like the Jets do by taking guys that have a questionable work ethic, and physical talent that never really met their on field production in college. You can wave your pom poms all you like but there is no way you can read any of the scouting reports on this guy and not have Gholstbust spring to mind.
Is he going to play dline or linebacker? I remember reading how Rex had him do linebacker drills at his pro day but he seems better suited for the DL. I don't think Coples will bust like Gholston because he's more versatile and athletic; I just thought they should have drafted a pure 3-4 OLB like Ingram or Upshaw over him.
I don't know enough about the other guys, I saw Coples play a lot and I love the pick. Maybe those other guys will be better pass rushers and we do need a pass rusher but Coples will improve our D overall. I love the DL we have built now we need to work on surrounding David Harris w/ some OLBs.
The only reason that the Jests look like they've drafted well in recent years is because the Bills and Fins have crapped the bed repeatedly on draft days through most of this century. Now that both teams have hired competent GMs who are football guys, they seem to be doing better in the draft while the Jests have continued to do what they've always done ... chase down high risk players because Jabba the Jest falls in love with them.
