Kuechly may be the best defensive player on the team already.

beason + kuechly on defense = cam newton on offense

i feel really good about what we have going on. anderson makes them one of the best LB corps in the league. TD makes them the best. the LB corps is the backbone of this defense...it's the core. with that great of a core the rest of the D will be better. it will make the rest of the talent around them look better than they might otherwise, much in the same way a good QB makes his receivers and the offense look better than it might otherwise.

i know this is supposed to be about kuechly and i agree about him. i think we undersold him. in the last month or so leading up to the draft (contrary to how i thought about him previous to that) i said that i thought he was not just the best LB in the draft, but the 2nd best defensive player in the draft and one of the top 5 talents overall in the draft. even with that, i think i may have underestimated him. i think just in the same way that even the staunchest of cam supporters were surprised at how well he did, those who were the biggest kuechly bell ringers will be surprised at how well he does. this kid is no kid. i understand tempering enthusiasm, but i fully believe in this case it's not needed. even beason knew what we were getting when we got him. i'm excited about beason and kuechly being on the field together. as good as those two are individually, they are going to make each other better.

Only problem with our LBers is none of them (starters) are exceptional blitzers.

i think you'll be changing your mind in the first few weeks of regular season when mcD and rivera open up the playbook.

Not sure about that. Much of that falls on the DL disruption.

Meanwhile we are paying CJ top defensive player money.

In a JJ scheme LB'ers need to blitz.

Im just parotting what a draftnik on twitter was telling me.

I obviously know nothing about the draft at this point :/

Keuchly's blitzing ability isn't really known, he wasn't asked to do it in college. That doesn't mean that he can't. He has the tools to be a dominant blitzer for sure.
