2012 NFL Mock Draft 1st Defensive End
08/21/2011: The last couple of years one of the most important positions in the NFL has been defensive end. Due to this fact a very important position in the NFL Draft has been Defensive Ends and Defensive Tackles. Quinton Coples is the top rated defensive end in this 2012 NFL Draft. In my 2012 NFL Mock Draft I have him as a top 5 pick with the ability to play both in as a rush OLB or a rush Defensive end. In the last year he has been a tackle machine with 15.5 sacks and 59 tackles making him a top pick in this 2012 NFL Mock Draft. All in all I think that Coples would fit in nearly any scheme and will be a very productive player in the NFL. Teams such as the Browns, Vikings, Broncos, and Bengals would all be viable options in this 2012 NFL Mock Draft.
