He's gonna have to add some major muscle, smaller than what I thought without pads.

I sure wish he was bigger and faster.

When taking a LB top 10 I imagine a freak athlete.

Many consider Patrick Willis to be a "freak athlete" and he was also picked in the top-10. Luke posted a 4.58 40-time, had 27 reps of 225 lbs, a 38 inch standing vertical, and a 123 inch broad jump.

Willis on the other hand, ran a 4.51, did 22 reps, had a 39 inch vertical and had a broad jump of 119 inches...

Kuechly's combination of great instincts and athleticism is going to be huge for our defense.

kuechly's only problem is his arms. 31 inches is short.

other than that, dude is a physical freak. fast as hell and strong. also an amazing tackler with great instincts.

Willis was picked just outside the top 10.

Still, he is considered one of the most athletic players at his position. A lot of people on this board are underestimating the poo out of Kuechly's athleticism. They will all be proved wrong soon enough.

Isn't this video a year old? It's possible he bulked up since then. I don't ever recall him looking small on the field in anything I've seen.

Yeah, that video was made before last offseason, so it's like a year old now. He's bulked up quite a bit since then. 242 isn't small by any stretch. He's bigger than Beason.

umm when did 4.58 become VERY fast?!?!

it isnt bad but it certainly isnt elite or very fast.

4.4 - is elite speed

4.50 - is nice / very fast

4.6 - is ok speed in a LB (4.58 is almost 4.6...)

Um, when did running 40 yards straight line with no pads mean anything?

The dude has fast GAME speed, with pads on, actually playing football. He reaches almost full acceleration after 2 or 3 steps, which is ideal when talking about LBs.

How about studying a book about football or something instead of trying to correct someone when you dont know what you are talking about.
