Mike Mayock Mock Draft Has Seattle Seahawks Taking Quinton Coples

The Seattle Seahawks have loved to take big athletic players since Pete Carroll arrived, and they might go that way again with no sure things likely to be available at the 12th pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Mike Mayock released his first and only mock on NFL.com, and the Seahawks end up taking someone in that mold in defensive end Quinton Coples. Coples could be another pass rusher along the line to further bolster Seattle's ability to stuff opposing offenses up front.

He's a boom-or-bust candidate. He had a big year as a junior at defensive tackle and got on everyone's radar. But to me, Coples is not a first-round pick off his senior year of tape, when he was playing defensive end. I recognize his talent, though. He had a great Senior Bowl week and I think Pete Carroll can get the most out of him.

More from Mayock on this pick by the Seahawks can be found in this video here.

To talk about whether Coples would be the best possible fit for the Seahawks, head on over to Field Gulls. To learn more about how good Coples is from North Carolina fans, check out Carolina March. Learn more about mock drafts, hit up Mocking the Draft.
