I really think that is going to be a strength with him. He was covering a lot today in the passing drills and for the most part kept up with the TE's. Can you imagine, covering TE's a strength of the Panthers? I like.

Hopefully he'll contain Jimmy Graham and Gonzo. I'm not too worried about the bucs TE's.

i saw someone in here say they expected keuchly to be second in in sacks this year, but i'm not sure why you'd want to take him out of coverage. i'm sure he'll be a part of more blitzing and rushing the passer than he was in college, but i think they'll probably tend to keep him in midfield to deal with what goes on there and free up other guys to cause mayhem in the backfield. he's pretty much the ultimate security valve. he makes it safe for the others to take part in stunts.

I have a feeling he will be relatively injury free. Seems very nimble on his feet.

When we drafted him I said he was taken to counter Graham and Sproles. I hope he makes life hell for opposing TE's every week.

This was the #2 best quality of him during all draft coverage behind his tackling abilities.

I'm not surprised, but at the same token... Did not expect him to learn and fit in this quickly. This dude seems legit!

Also, a tidbit that I think that's being overlooked... He did 10 push ups today when he missed a pick. Usually only Elite athletes that expect to make those kind of plays punish themselves like that. He's not doing it for show or to gain respect. It's honestly who he is. Beason does it as well.

Very likely that my next jersey will be a Keuchly.

He's going to be a stud in coverage. His lateral quickness and agility in pads is very, very, good.

Really like what I am hearing about Luke; the force is with him.

If he can contain the likes of the elite TEs in this league and be a reliable sideline to sideline tackling machine every Sunday, this defense will turn around quick assuming the defensive front four have made progress from last season.

Can't wait to see this kid suited up come week 1.

What does he really have in common with Morgan other than being white and playing linebacker?
