Not a big fan of the Carolina pick, Coples just screams bust to me.
I think the pick is still Devon Still but I agree the DT crop looks to be a group empty of elite talent.
agreed on coples. i love the talent. i love the potential. i fear the motor and motivation.
i agree that there isn't really "elite" DT talent in this draft, but it's still a very good and deep class. i think still is about the 3rd, maybe 4th best DT in this class, though. cox is the best in the group, imo. i think still might be a bit more polished than poe or brockers, but i don't think that he's got near the upside or room for growth that those two have.
one thing i would be keeping an eye on is that the panthers are really liking kuechly and as much as they like thomas davis, they don't seem to have tons of confidence that he will be back to what he was or that he will last long if he can make a solid return. also, beason is coming back from an achilles injury and those things are tough to come back 100% from. they could very well be looking at those two guys and thinking that a talent like keuchly (imo, a top 3 defensive talent in this draft) is just too much to pass by.
