My only concern with our first round selection Quinton Coples

I am cautiously stoked about our selection of DE and possibly OLB Quinton Coples. Why only cautisouly stoked you may ask? I honestly didn't see anything horrible in his film. All of the analysts say that he had a down year, but in my opinion, I thought he did just fine. No he did great considering that he saw more double, and even triple teams.

My only concern with this pick is that I am not sure where his fit is in our 3-4 defense. You would think that the Jets would try him out there, but I am not so sure that he would be able to make the transition. This makes me think that we will see more 4-3 this year, and if it is successful, maybe a even a permanent stay at a 4-3 defensive alignment. Nonetheless, I would still like for our 2nd round pick to be Vinny Curry. I think that he will be a stud as a 3-4 OLB and I think he can be had for a trade into the early part of the second round.

Curry is worth every penny that we would have to give up to get him in the early second round.

Quinton Coples vs Miami 2011 (via JMPasq)

Look at how he was able to get through a double team at 2:15. This is the kind of dominance we need in our pass rush. He has the potential to be elite and I do think is worth a minor risk at 16. Chandler Jones was over-hyped; I was even more stoked that the Patsies picked him. (Although the Hightower pick kind of pissed me off).

Coples oozes potential and I do think he will prove Rex and Mr.T right. I still want Curry though.
