Ignorant question. We had one of the worst defenses in the league last year, and the best players were injured. Kuechly makes the defense better than it was and adds depth to the LB core. Simple as that. We have more than one draft pick and there are still plenty of good DTs and CBs available.

i'm watching the first game against atlanta right now and suddenly i'm liking this pick more. none of our linebackers could make a freaking tackle - turner, mughelli, snelling all just running over guys.

Ok after a night of bitching about those pick I will look on the bright side. Any game you saw a LB trailing a TE he would have helped.

You add a healthy LB core and we don't give up 140 yards rushing per game in turn winning a few more games....I wanted a DT myself but I'm not mad about the pick, I understand that our LBs were poo last year and as much as we all want Davis back I wouldn't bet 5$ he finishes the season.

He is not depth.

Anyone who REALISTICALLY thinks that Davis is coming back after 3 ACL tears in the SAME knee and play at a Pro Bowl level is kiding themselves.

I LOVE Davis and hope he can....but it is just not going to happen.

Davis will now provide us depth....not Kuechly.

That's basically what I meant. He is someone that can step right in. And now, as opposed to 3 good linebackers(2 which are coming off bad injuries), we now have 4 good linebackers. If Davis or Beason go down again, and I'm sure at least one will, who would they have had to fill that hole? That's why Kuechly is the right pick.

Edit: I should add that I'm aware Kuechly will most likely be starting. But if we didn't draft him, that's when my question above would have came in to play.

The point is you dipshits that having a better linebacker last season wouldn't have won us a single game. There wasn't a Sunday last year where people were saying that the team played great enough to play if only the linebackers had been better. Even when they struggled, the play of the defensive line or secondary was SO much worse that we would have lost anyway.


Well apparently Kuechly is a great cover guy. So if that is true, maybe we win that first Saints game in Charlotte. Jimmy Graham was uncovered most of that game. The d-linemen in the draft are not impact players. I think Kuechly can be an impact player. Solid pick by the Panthers.

Answer this question...

how many games would the Denver Broncos have won last year without Von Miller. I'm not saying they are the same, I'm just saying don't minimize the impact of one player.

LB wasn't the biggest need when we picked Beason either, nor was RB a need when we picked Stewart. Point is, you don't draft a guy for one year, you draft him and hopefully have him for 10 years or more. That's why you take the best player. The value of Kuechly isn't just what he brings for 2012, but also what he brings for 2013-2023 and maybe longer. There's no way to predict what positions will be positions of need during that time, so you take BPA.
