Kuechly: NFL Rookie Power Rankings after Week 2

NFL Preseason 2012: Power Ranking the NFL's Top 50 Rookies After Week 2

18. Luke Kuechly, LB, Carolina Panthers

Preseason Stats: 7 Tackles, 1 Pass Defended, 1 Forced Fumble

Luke Kuechly was thought to be one of the most polished prospects in the 2012 NFL draft, and his performance through two preseason games hasn't changed that opinion.

Kuechly has shown a knack for being around the football and has made plays all over the field. His sideline-to-sideline ability and football instincts are clear every time he steps onto the field.

If Kuechly isn't atop your list of favorites to walk away with the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award, its time you re-think your list.

I don't agree with their rankings, b/c he is behind some questionable ranks, but fun to see how people see him on the natioanl stage.

And Silatolu should definitely be on this list!! COME ON MAN!

Preseason rankings? Really? So many players are getting minutes that they won't possibly get later on. Oh, and then there is that "level of competition" thing.

Luke's gonna do his thing, I have zero worries. Amini sounds like he'll be a stud as a rook as well.

yeah the list is retarded. But it is Bleacher report so it's just one person's opinion. Pretty much as retarded as ESPN or any national writers

Yeah, I don't put a lot of faith in BR, BUT...then again, like you said...ESPN, etc., etc. can be just as ill informed.

It's a Panthers related article that can generate some discussion amongst us tho. I'd rather read that some some of the nonsensical treads started recently tho.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
