Carolina Panthers Round 1 Draft Selection - Luke Kuechly

Unpopular opinion alert: I think DE is a bigger need than DT.

I do to except TD has been injured every year......cant just assume our lbs will be healthy or we will be the worst defense in the league again

Great pick IMO. He is a beast. Thank god we did not pick Coples who was widely expected to be our guy. I was thrilled not to hear Coples but Kuchely. Now we have the best LB and RB corps in the league. Perfect!!!

Never ever, since I have been have been a Panthers fan, have we picked a guy that I wanted months in advance of the draft. Not only wanted, but practically begged to get. I love Beason, and I hope he comes back ready to go. But Kuechly, he is a special player. I am so excited for this guy to be part of Panther Nation, I can't even explain. Those that aren't, give it time, you'll come around soon enough.

^My sentiments, exactly.

Kuechly is a great pick for us. I'm confident that they can address other needs on the team in the other rounds.

Was disappointed at the pick at first but I think I understand it now. I think my problem is I always think Hurney is going to go outside the box with a pick but in the end we go with the BPA. I guess my question would be, Can this guy play Will and how well? Hoping we will incorporate more 3-4 looks this next year. I will feel better if we are able to get Worthy, Still, or Jenkins at 40.

Does this mean we will get an 'A' from caste football now?

Love the player.

Hate the pick.

Hurney builds a team worse than Matt Millen.

You can't hate this pick. You might think that there was a bigger NEED on defense but as far as BPA at a need position this was the best value there. I would have been just as happy with picking Cox but they obviously felt that Kuechly was such a better player that it warranted addressing a position that wasn't as big of a need or they felt that DT isn't as big of a need as ensuring that we don't have guys off the street playing LB again next year.
