Luke Kuechly - The Right Choice

57 posts in this topic

I liked the pick, based on what we need. If Beason was 100% and Connor was here, I would have screamed for Fletcher Cox. Hopefully there is good value at other positions of need in later rounds.

If we are willing to move Beason from the middle, why not just keep Connor? And use this pick somewhere else like DE or CB.

Instead of reaching for a DE or DT that still has question marks, they pick the most productive, high-impact player available. More impact than any secondary player would have been(even though i woulda loved Gilmore), and there are plenty of reasons not to love any of those first round DT's. With only one healthy LB on the team, I think this fills one of the biggest holes. No, we don't have any stand-out players other than Johnson on the line, but we do have bodies. We have very few bodies at LB. I give this pick an A.

Anderson, beason, and kuechly. That's a strong fuging corps. Put Davis back at the joker on 3rd down to help the pass rush. Solid.

This exactly.

With Davis' knee issues, limit the snaps he takes and prolong his career.

Because Conner was just AVERAGE.

Offense has Superman...

Defense has Clark Kent.

Kuechly is smarter than most of the people on this board -

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
