Why all the love for Coples?



Quinton Coples is projected by many mocks to be the Jaguars 7th pick int he draft. My simple question is why? What makes him an elite pass rusher, something that we don't have on our roster right now? 23.5 sacks in 4 college seasons is less then 6 per season.

Coples is that big body that everybody thinks translates to NFL success. I just don't see the quickness, desire, or production for the Jaguars to take this guy at 7.

Aside from his size, another plus is his ability to play interior line as well and rush form the interior. That sounds great, but don't we need an outside rush? Alualu and Knighton need a pass rusher on the outside, and Coples isn't that type of player.

Let's avoid Coples and address this need in Free Agency.
