With the 16th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the New York Jets Select:
Quinton Coples DE, North Carolina
Coples is a difficult prospect as some are very high on him and others are not. He is at a difficult size since he is around the 280 pound mark which makes people wonder if he is too big and slow to be a 4-3 pass rusher, or if he is too small to play the 5-technique. The best hope here for the Jets is that they grabbed the best available athlete on the board and can unleash Rex Ryan on him to hopefully turn him into a great defensive football player in the NFL.
The Cincinnati Bengals are now on the clock.
