Quinton Coples: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The 16th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Coples never quite lived up to expectations, yet his release still comes as a surprise. He had 5.5, 4.5 and 6.5 sacks in his first three seasons, but he's barely seen the field in 2015 since the first few weeks of the year. It won't be long before he signs with another team.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Coples is likely to start at LB for the Jets in 2013.
There is certainly some risk in drafting Coples, particularly given that he is not only a rookie, but one playing the end spot in a 3-4 front. But he possesses rare upside and should see more pass-rushing work than most 3-4 ends, as he’s a good bet to move outside rather than to the tackle spot when the Jets run nickel and dime formations, and he could emerge as the Jets' sack leader in such a role. Mike DeVito is much less talented than Coples, but he finished the 2010 season with 59 tackles. Coples should make a good push for 60 tackles and eight sacks this year if he keeps his head on straight.
