Posted May 04, 2012 on AP on Fox
Quinton Coples had just finished his first practice with the New York Jets when he walked to the sideline while everyone else headed toward the locker room. The first-round draft pick strolled over to the man waiting for him and shook his hand and smiled. It was new team president Neil Glat. Good move, kid. Talk about a good first impression. And he wasn't too bad on the field, either. Rex Ryan raved about Coples during the first day of rookie minicamp Friday. But the big defensive lineman wasn't the only one singled out. Second-round pick Stephen Hill, a wide receiver from Georgia Tech, and third-rounder Demario Davis, a hard-hitting linebacker from Arkansas State, also impressed their coach during the 2 1/2-hour practice.

  • The Jets are building the right way you dont go all in for the SB every year. Now they have a strong D-line with 2 first rounders and a 2nd and a pro Bowl Vet. The Jets have the best CB tri in the NFL and added L Landrey for INS. Jets now have two young studs at WR a great TE and 2 1st round QB's. They make it back to the playoffs say 1 win then out.


    Next years draft they target the best Saftey and OLB and are ready to compete for a Title.
