[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman][font=Calibri][font=Calibri]18. Luke Kuechly, LB, Carolina Panthers [/font][/font][/font][/color][/font]
[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman][font=Calibri][font=Calibri]Preseason Stats: 7 Tackles, 1 Pass Defended, 1 Forced Fumble[/font][/font][/font][/color][/font]

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman][font=Calibri][font=Calibri]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.[/font][/font][/font][/color][/font]

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman][font=Calibri][font=Calibri]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.[/font][/font][/font][/color][/font]

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman][font=Calibri][font=Calibri]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.[/font][/font][/font][/color][/font]

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.

Still plenty of time for him to climb the ladder.

How is he behind a running back who has barely averaged over 3 yards a carry..

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.

Wow. Keuchly not getting the love. I guess what he does just kind of goes unnoticed.

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.

Flemming must be playing well. I wanted him in the draft.

I got alot of faith in our rookie CB though.
