Carolina Panthers Round 1 Draft Selection - Luke Kuechly

Recommended Posts

I know he CAN, as can Beason. But both are naturally middle linebackers, and I guarantee you both would rather play in their natural position.

If anything Kuechly's natural position is OLB seeing as how he was recruited as a S/OLB. He was moved to the mike in Boston and he succeeded. He may not have played the position in a while, but he wouldn't exactly be "out of position".

GREAT pick. We wil have several options at LB and I am sure Rivera will put the pieces in place to make it work. Both Beason and LK can play any LB position and it gives us great versatility.

Plus is fills one of our biggest needs

Can't stress enough how good a pick this was.

Posted this in the other thread, but it looks like folks migrated over here.

Just listened to the live press conference with Hurney and Rivera.

Short recap:

-Number 1 player on their board at 9; went BPA

-Like his versatility, think he can play all 3 linebacker spot

-Dodged questions about where he'd play. Rivera said, "We'll put the best players on the field."

-Asked Hurney about whether LB injuries were a factor in the pick, "Not at all."

-On possibility of trading back into 1st round, "Probably not"

-Liked his work ethic. 71 out of 71 players showed up. Wanted to make sure they got a guy who'd be number 72.

WTF?

Don't get me wrong I love Thomas Davis. I say it all the time, I wish absolutely nothing but the best for him. But the guy's career is done. If Kookly can place WLB, and we felt he was BPA then it's a great pick. I trust Hurney in the first, I doubt RR would have signed off on this if he didn't feel strong about him.

It's pronounced Luke Keekly.

We now have the best LB core in the league.

Beason wont budge from MLB Luke will take Anderson or Davis If not healthy. Maybe a little 3-4 every now and then with all 4 out there hopefully.

I love all these folks who still don't like the pick. Our coaches did all their homework and picked the best guy in the draft on defense, He will be better than Dan Morgan and anchor our defense for years. One thing I hope is that this is not an admission that Beason isn't as far along as they need him to be. Hopefully they intend to have both of them on the field at the same time. I guess they have seen enough of Davis to know that if he comes back it will be a bonus not an expectation.

Best LB Corps in the NFL!

I'll take it!

We damn well better. I'm pretty sure no other team has three 1st round picks and a 3rd round pick as their top 4 LB corps.
