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.

Well, why is it so easy to imagine a team selecting one of the best MLB prospects in the last decade.....and not playing him at MLB?

Luke has the skill set to project to be better than Beason at MLB. Luke is the ideal MLB candidate....Beason moving to OLB isn't a knock on him.

Claiming the only way Luke plays MLB is bc he sucks at OLB.... I leaves out a lot on rational thoughts about the LB spot in Carolina

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 look at it this way. Most everyone can agree Beason is a top 5 MLB ( top 2 IMO) and Kuechly has the "potential" to be a to in the top 5.

Now as far as the outside position goes, Kuechly has the "potential" to be a top 5 guy. While I think Beason falls out of that category.

IMO Kuechly as the WILL and Beason as the MIKE would be getting the best out of both players.

Who would you rather have in coverage,on Jimmy Graham? Beason or Kuechly?

Davis hurt his leg early I'm camp. Beason had plenty of time to learn the position...its really no different now, if he's been playin MIKE through out OTAs and mini-camp then they decide to switch him early on in TC. Beason just isn't the same player at WLB and that's not a knock on him. I actually think Davis (when healthy) is better WLB than Beason could be.

I see no reason why Beason lacks potential to be a top OLB.

Luke has a better skill set to play MLB than Beason.

in zone schemes....the MLB most often covers the middle where TEs roam.

I just think it is unfair to use that one year as proof Beason can't excell at OLB.

Beason is the one who admitted to freelancing too much and not playing the OLB spot like he should....not a talent issue.

Luke is going to be our MLB going forward and Beason will move. He projects to be better than Beason at that spot. No point in really delaying the process for either IMO if Luke is ready. The fact Beason is coming off his injury just cements that.

I think once people see Luke in pads against completion people will continue to slowly realize exactly what we drafted....our MLB

It all depends on how Davis recovers.

Even if he is 100% today....they would be foolish to make him a starter IMO. Situational role player and depth seems to be his best fit going forward.

People forget that Beason was drafted to be an OLB and the only reason he's playing the Mike is because of the injury problems that Morgan had. Beason was also an OLB at Miami.

I want it to be Beason-Keuchly-Davis but I think it will be Keuchly-Beason-Anderson.

Don't think anyone has forgotten that. But I doesn't change the fact that he's a top 5 MLB and he's played that spot since 2007 and the time he spent at WLB wasn't anything to brag about.

He was moved to WLB if given a full off season there he will excel, Keuchly is going to be a beast and is better suited to defend the middle because of his height.
