Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
Pick made by: muncie_in_this
The addition of Coples gives the Broncos something similar the Colts in terms of strong defensive ends on both sides. Dumervil and Coples should pair up nicely as a great defensive asset in a league that is clearly becoming more pass oriented. While Coples skills as a pass rusher are well established, he is also a more than adequate run defender, an aspect of Denver's defense that could be improved.
This team will want to get the ball back to its offense as much as possible and as we've seen in Indy for many years, a great pair of pass rushing ends can do that very effectively. This is a dream pick for the Broncos but yeah, I did what i had to do to get to my pick so whatever
Here is stuff on Quinton pulled straight from Walter Football because they came up first on my Google search. Prostyle.

Projected Round (2012): Top-20 Pick.
4/14/12: Coples ran well at the Combine, and he performed well in the field drills. His stock has stayed in the top 10, but concerns about his motor have allowed Ingram to pass Coples as the consensus top-rated defensive end. He had a solid but unspectacular pro day. How Coples interviews on the team visits will be critical to his draft stock. It isn't out of the question that he will fall on draft day.
With a lot on the line, Coples used the Senior Bowl to prove that he is an elite defensive end prospect with the physical talent to warrant a high first-round pick. Regularly, Coples destroyed offensive linemen with a combination of strength and speed. He was a tough run defender while being an overwhelming pass rusher.
In the one-on-one reps, Coples won the vast majority of his battles. He repeatedly and resoundingly beat Florida State offensive tackle Zebrie Sanders. It wasn't even close. Coples also had wins against Georgia' guard/tackle Cordy Glenn. Both of those linemen entered the week in Mobile as potential first-round picks.
Not only does Coples (6-5, 281) possess ideal size and speed, he is a developed pass rusher who uses speed and power to execute a dynamic set of moves. Coples can speed rush to either direction, has a good rip move, a spin move and a bull rush. He just needs to become more consistent.
Coples totaled 55 tackles with 15 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and a plethora of quarterback hurries in 2011. He faced consistent double teams, but steadily pressured the quarterback. Coples was strong against the run throughout the season. Against Clemson, one of his better opponents, he played well. Coples had a sack-fumble against quarterback Tajh Boyd on a speed rush versus the left tackle. Coples had another sack on a bull rush through a guard, but a facemask penalty by a teammate canceled out the play.
The senior also had quality games against Miami, Duke, Virginia Tech and James Madison. NFL coaches will love Coples' versatility. He rushes well from defensive tackle and also plays well as a five-technique in 3-4 sets.
8/21/11: Quinton Coples took advantage of the season-long suspension of Robert Quinn in 2010. After producing five sacks as a red-shirt freshman in 2009, Coples doubled his sack total last season. He also contributed 15.5 tackles for a loss, 59 tackles and two forced fumbles. Coples has a phenomenal skill set for the NFL. If Coples can come close to that level of production, he should be a top-five pick.
And this was the shortest best looking video I found with another quick Google search. Again, Prostyle.
