Who in their right mind would bench the Beast for a rookie

Probably the team who drafted the best MLB prospect to come out in a LONG time will move him to OLB

Have you watched Luke? He is a natural and there is a reason Beason thought he was a more sure thing than Luck.....and most billed Luck as the most sure thing the NFL has seen in a decade

I'd start the Beast before Davis or Anderson hands down. Then again I'd start the Beast in the middle with Kuech and Andy beside him.

I think we'll go into the regular season with Beason at Will, Luke at Mike and Anderson at Sam with Davis being situational, a 3-4 rush OLB in some packages.

I'm not a linebacker guru but whichever position requires the most speed I would give to Kuechly. Also I would rest Beason a ton. Have him rotating out with TD.

Beason played the weak side ok, but he is stellar in the middle. Kuechly is just a very solidfootball player. He will flourish regardless of weak or middle. I think he will end up better than Beason, but because he is so athletic and injury free he will be best served as our weak side backer. Kuechly's coverage skills will strengthen our LB corps from the weak side. I find it funny how analyst forget just good Beason was in coverage. Anderson should start over Davis because of his durability. He isn't an All Pro backer but he is solid. In my opinion, Davis should be better served as a spark and on third and long replacing Anderson. Kuechly Beason & Davis on third down against this quarterback happy conference would be pretty amazing. They would really help our secondary underneath.

I think our base 4-3 will be Kuechly - Beason - Anderson. Though with Beason still recovering from injury I could see Luke sliding over and playing some Mike and Davis coming in and sharing time with Beason. That is of course if Beason needs to take some plays off. Actually, it might be smarter to play Luke at Mike and let Beason and Davis rotate at Will.

I agree with JOAT. Luke should man the middle unless Beason shows a lot more in camp than seems reasonable, given his injury.

Beason was only okay at OLB bc he moved there at the last minute....freelanced and wasnt comfortable.

Beason can play OLB at a high level if prepped properly. Plus Beason probably needs to be protected from himself....he and TD rotating at WLB could be smart early.

I can't imagine a scenario where a rookie earns the MLB spot away from one of the top 5 MLBs in the game. If Kuechly ends up inside, it likely won't be for that reason, but because he couldn't hack it at OLB yet and needed to be put in his comfort zone rather than trying to cover NFL level TEs and WRs.

All of this would be valid if Beason was 100% healthy. The reality is, he isn't, and that is why it makes more sense to put Luke in the middle.
