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.

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

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
