As 2012 NFL free agency is on going, teams are also visiting with potential NFL Draft picks to work them out privately and get to know them better. One player who has been mocked quite a bit to the Jacksonville Jaguars is North Carolina Quinton Coples, which makes sense given the Jaguars need at defensive end opposite Jeremy Mincey. Well, the Jaguars are bringing in Coples for a pre-draft visit according to a report by Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer.

While Coples is a bit of a lightning rod in draft circles, he's an intriguing versatile player that could potentially be a big addition to the Jaguars defensive line. While I do not believe the Jaguars will actually draft Coples, he should be available to them with the No. 7 overall pick during the draft.
