So, this year I really paid attention to the Senior Bowl for the first time ever. My main reason is my newly found website obsession, Bloggingtheboys. There have been many tremendous reads and comments over the past year (bloggingtheboys staff, chia, Mensa, 5Blings, Omar Little, and recently Rohpuri and Birddog) Y'all's passion about the Cowboys really struck home...so first off "Thanks for your efforts and hardwork!". You all have inspired me to share my thoughts.
This is my 1st FanPost and I want to focus on whom I feel will be the best immediate impact player we can draft.....Quinton Coples. Quinton Coples is a beast pure and simple. He was an absolute boss during the SeniorBowl as he played with nastiness and with something to prove.
The knock on this guy was that he takes plays off and lacks a high motor. Today, he exhibited the exact opposite. He was dominant throughout the game with a sack, tipped passes and consistent pressure on the QB. This guy just looks mean... We need MEAN!!!! Just look at those brands on his arms... Dude is tough.
Did you read that????? Pressure on the QB!! There's a novel concept.
If we continue to go the 3-4 route...we need to find a way to make sure we can get Mr. Coples wearing the star. Even if we go to the 4-3 we need to get this guy in the star. The game comes naturally to him, he's strong, he's fast, he's got the measurables. If we stick 3-4 and move Ratliff to the other end opposite Coples I am up pumped to think about the pressure and mismatches we can create. If we go 4-3 base we can put him and Demarcus on opposite sides...it doesn't matter.
I was a big Melvin Ingram advocate but now my pick is all Coples...Ingram or Upshaw is a nice consolation prize but Coples possesses that Julius Peppers game-changing ability and will eventually be flat-out unblockable. The guy is that front line playmaker this defense is lacking. Robowski would love this guy...
What do you all think?
