After running my Chargers 7 round mock draft last night, I thought it would be cool to throw together some posts with some highlight videos of some of the players that I mocked to San Diego. Our first player will be fullback J.C. Copeland. I have the Chargers taking him in the 7th round. If you missed the first edition of my Chargers 7 round mock draft, here is a link.
Despite the fact that the fullback position is now the dinosaur position in today’s NFL, scoring points in the redzone is still at a premium. Having a guy like Copeland in your short yardage and goal line packages truly enhances your chances of scoring. As a blocker he will fight through the whistle and he does a good job sealing off defenders in the hole. He also has adequate hands as a receiver. At right around 270 pounds, he is a bit quicker than you’d expect.
Take a look at a few videos that I found on YouTube and let me know what you think about J.C. Copeland landing in San Diego during May’s NFL draft.
We all know that these highlight videos intentionally leave out the bad plays and only show the positive ones. But you do get a little idea of what the player is capable of doing. Copeland looks like a guy that you might even be able to line up at tailback on the goal line at the next level and have him punch it in after getting a full head of steam. He did so in one of the videos above in a college all-star game and scored twice.
Let me know what you all think about Copeland by leaving a comment below.
Thanks for stopping by. Stay classy, San Diego.
