I'm gonna give you guys a little preseason spoiler alert:

Keek's gonna have a lot of defensive TD's.

Over/Under, 3?

Kuechly was the correct draft choice. Top defenseive player in the draft in my opinion. And our defense sucked last year. No brainer.

6'2 245 4.58 27 reps on bench 38 inch vert. Unreal instincts and IQ. Ball skills....

Im happier than a pig in poo now that he's on our team

I wonder how long it will take for the Bucs to start kicking themselves for passing on Kuechly for Barron.

Yea, I was (strongly) against drafting him, but man I do like the kid. I suppose in the long run, he probably was a better choice than the guy I wanted...

He straight up blew up a Cam read option and the red jersey was the only thing that slowed him down

The guy definately has some football smarts - and I feel much more comfortable for our season this year if knock wood, Beason has problems coming back from his achilles.

just found this tidbit about JB

SPARTANBURG Carolina Panthers middle linebacker Jon Beason said he could feel the Achilles tendon he injured last season getting tired while he went through his first full practice with the Panthers at training camp.

“It felt good. It fatigued on me late because I haven’t this much work,” Beason said. “It’s hard to simulate football through training. It’s a lot of reacting. All of a sudden you have to stop based on what the offense is doing.

“It was good early. It faded out a little bit toward the end. I think I was about four plays away from having a pretty good practice. I think I took the most reps on the defense. I didn’t want to come out. Part of that is getting in shape and wanting to be out there and get comfortable.”

Beason said he’s happy to be at middle linebacker, his natural position. There was talk after the Panthers used their first-round draft choice on linebacker Luke Kuechly that Beason might be moved outside. Instead, Kuechly and James Anderson are lining up on opposite sides of Beason.

While Beason has focused much of his attention on being physically ready for training camp, he admitted he’s still not fully comfortable mentally with his role due to the time he missed last season.

“There is a comfort level but right now I’m not as comfortable as I should be,” Beason said. “It’s a new scheme for me because it is my first year in the scheme after missing all of last year. I’m doing a lot of thinking out there.

“I want to make it more instinctive. Make calls fast and be assertive. There is a curve. I think I’m doing a great job with it but I know inside my brain is really going. Sometimes you just want to do it effortlessly.”

I am a huge fan of this guy.

Was/am not a fan of drafting a MLB in the top ten when you have the highest paid MLB in the NFL already on your roster.

But whatever.

When this kid gets his first pick-6 I'm going to wild out.

I will probably will just bump an old thread where 98% of the board was calling panthers55 and I utter fools for claiming he was the guy we should draft early on....

That's just me, I like to take the low road sometimes...

My favorite part about Luke is that he seems incredibly smart and humble as well.

I honestly think over 3. There's been so many reports in camp about how fast he is, and he's already stepped in front a few passes displaying good hands.

3 pick 6, and a fumble recovery.
