that Luke Kuechly will be a bust at #9, based only on "he's a white LB"

now I know Dan Connor did very well here, but we can all admit- he was no Beason- not that there are many Beasons out there- but, we can also say Connor was no James Anderson either.

i loved the pick of Connor and where we drafted him in the 3rd round- i just have a problem with Luechly being our #1 pick with guys like Coples and Cox still on the board..

Am I wrong? anyone else feel this way?

People will jump at the chance to call you racist, but I'll be damned if there isn't some truth to white linebackers being less athletic. I can't be racist just for noticing this "trend", right?

Dont worry he would be a bust if he was purple. Dude is a avg MLB that is this years Gabbert in terms of hype.

This solely depends on one thing. Are you black?

If the only "criticism" of him is that he's white, then yeah, that's a racist sentiment. If you want to say he's not as athletic as other LB's because he's not as athletic, that's one thing... but just because he's white is not a reason.

Just because you're athletic doesn't mean you'll be good... just because you're not as athletic doesn't mean you won't be...

If you really think that sums up your post, then I don't even think you're on the same page with yourself.

Kuechly is as good or better of an athlete than Beason.

He'll be a "bust" because no matter how good he is you can't justify taking an OLB who can't rush the passer at that spot when we have pressing needs elsewhere.

It would have been like taking Dareus last year.

Sure, he's good, but his impact would have been minimal in the grand scheme of things.

Sadly Hurney overvalues low importance positions like RB and LB so we'll probably move up to get him at 6.
