Draft minute: Quinton Coples
By Jamison Hensley
Here's a quick analysis to go along with the video report by ESPN's Todd McShay:
Position: Defensive end-tackle. School: North Carolina
Possible AFC North destination: Bengals
Positive: Flashes explosive power which helps him to rush the passer from the interior or from the edge. Negative: Lacks a strong motor and has been known to give half-hearted effort.
Projection: Coples' attitude makes it hard to pin down where he'll go in the draft. He could go as high as No. 8 to the Dolphins or be available when the Bengals are selecting No. 17. Should go in the top 20.
