Based on ability alone, Quinton Coples seems like a sure-fire top-10 pick. But some people have openly wondered about his effort level, and as a result, the questions keep coming.

The Finsiders caught up with the North Carolina defensive end to ask how he feels about the criticisms.

Is North Carolina's Quinton Coples a likely target at #8?

With the NFL Draft less than a month away, I figured we’d take a look at eight things that could happen when the Dolphins get ready to use the eighth pick on April 26th. I’ve attempted to categorize them three ways: “good chance,” “possible chance” and “slim chance,” though those categories are just my own opinions.
