You don't know that, I know its a different position, but Denver took a LB second overall and that worked out pretty well. I mean Claiborne is obviously better but I really think Kuechly makes more of an impact on that defense... (and I want someone like Claiborne or Blackmon to drop to us)

Denver took the best defensive player/pass rusher/prospect on their board. He just happened to play linebacker. It's differen't when the guy isn't a pass rusher.

Blackmon might fall to us (not likely), Claiborne has no shot.

Brian Urlacher, Jerod Mayo, Lawrence Timmons, and Dansby two picks out of the first round. Let me guess now, you're gunna say Kuechly can NEVER be what Urlacher is derp derp. This is what I'm talking about. People like you who attack others that come up with ideas. No one said he's gunna pass rush and that isn't what Tampa needs, they need a general in the middle of that defense. Probably won't draft him, but why knock the idea and dub it retarded?

If the Panthers draft Keuchly, I would be ecstatic. There are a handful of players that would receive that kind of reaction from me. I know what kind of ability and leadership Keuchly can bring to a defense. I do believe he will be an Urlacher type defender in the NFL. The reason people are wary of taking him high, however, is the downplay of the position. I personally don't buy into that garbage, and still see the MLB as the quarterback of the defense. That being said, you look for elite pass rushers, game changing offensive players, franchise left tackles, shutdown corners, or a franchise QB in the top 5 (where Tampa is) before you look to a MLB. Just my opinion, but those positions are the ones that are harder to acquire anywhere else but the top 5, and that's why you have to take them if they are there. You hope not to be in the top 5 again in order to have a chance at the next guy.

Not really sure where you are going with this but I have no issue with the Panthers drafting Kuechly in the 2nd round....if thats what you are getting at

No, what im getting at is, stop trying to undermine my intelligence because you feel my idea is "eh" and assuming that I compare Kuechly to the type of player Ware, Mathews, and Miller are. I just look at their D and see the BIGGEST hole at all LB spots. Their dline is well invested and this thread is put up on hopefully wishing, but as I was thinking about it, crazier things have happened and it's not impossible.

I think you might be undermining your own intelligence. I would love for Tampa to draft him btw.

A) he doesnt tackle until the offensive player 5 yards beyond the LOS and B)It would eliminate him as an option

Well, I did hear on ESPN earlier Mel Kiper say if Kalil fell past three TB would have to decide between him and Kalil, of course under that circumstance Claiborne is gone at three and Richardson at 4

Kuechly is not projected as a top 5 pick because he's not an impact player. He is going to be a quality starter and eventually probowler. However he's not going to take over the league like a Ray Lewis or Patrick Willis. He doesn't make plays in the backfield.
