Luke Kuechly, LB, Carolina Panthers
Kuechly is one of the most decorated and productive linebackers in college football history, excelling in all aspects of the game. He is very quick to key, flow and fill against the run. He uses his hands well to get off blocks and is a solid, chest-up tackler. Against the pass, he is an explosive blitzer and has outstanding instincts and ball skills in coverage. Kuechly is going to stuff the stat sheet in 2012 and will have a very good shot at making the "Top 100" next year.
I've never seen must footage on Kueckly to name him an explosive blitzer. If this is true, it bodes well for us. He can blitz when not being a tackling machine. His football IQ is great according to pundits and Beason himself. I can't wait to see what he does on the field for sure. If he can intercept QB's and Blitz effectively besides being a tackling machine this year, he could be a candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Found interesting that they also have two other NFC south rookies that play for the same team. Doug Martin and Mark Barron.
