Senior Bowl notes: Quinton Coples dominates " Seahawks Draft Blog
I’ve just finished watching the Senior Bowl and wanted to quickly put a few thoughts on the blog. Firstly, the best player on the field today was Quinton Coples (DE, North Carolina) and it wasn’t even close. He was playing at a different level to anyone else, flashing superb range, athleticism, repertoire and extreme athleticism. His motor kept rolling throughout the game and he played like a top-five pick - he was virtually unblockable at times. The thing is, I’m not quite sure what to make of it all.

Senior Bowl Rankings: Offense " Tom Melton's NFL Draft Blog
1- Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State: Weeden is a bit of a polarizing prospect but I like him. He had a pretty good week and while he isn’t NFL ready as some quarterbacks are I do think he warrants serious 3rd round consideration and some 2nd round consideration.

Senior Bowl Rankings: Defense " Tom Melton's NFL Draft Blog
1- Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina: Coples was dominant at times this week and looked unblockable in 1 on 1 drills versus almost everyone on the South offensive line. He can be as good as he wants to be thanks to his great combination of size, length and athleticism. He projects to be a great LE in the NFL if he continues to work and provide the effort level that he had this week.

Melvin Ingram 2012 NFL Draft scouting report - Mocking The Draft
Coverage: Although Ingram hasn’t been used much dropping back in coverage, he has the agility and range to transition well with some repetitions. He’s done well when used in zone coverage and returned an interception for a touchdown as a junior. Almost a complete unknown in man situations. May need to learn how to match up one-on-one against tight ends and running backs. Height may be a disadvantage against big tight ends.

Alameda Ta'amu 2012 NFL Draft scouting report - Mocking The Draft
Pass rush: Is better than most players his size at slipping blocks and getting into the backfield. Won’t surprise anyone with pass rush moves, but Ta’amu can hit gaps fairly well and has good short-area explosiveness when there’s an opening. Uses a decent bull rush. Hasn’t been used a lot to play the B-gap on stunts.
