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

MLB will be Luke's next year. Gives Luke even more room and ability to use his instincts to make plays. Beason needs to be used in more of a thumper role.

if beason is anywhere near his pre injury level by the end of this season i doubt we move him outside. luke has shown me he can play & have a impact inside or on the outside, so if it ain't broke then why fix it?

Well, Luke projects as a better MLB than Beason....if Luke reaches his potential it is ony a matter of when, not if he becomes the MLB.

As I said before when people were hating on the thought of drafting him......people would fall in love with this kid in preseason when forced to watch him. When he plays a full season.....people will get over the thought Beason is owed the MLB spot. Luke is a MLB. If he is what he projects.....he will do the job better than Beason.

Just want to add...If Thomas Davis can somehow get back to 2009 form before his injury, he would become our best defensive player

Ordered a Kuechly jersey last night though!!

I still don't like that he does not have that killer mind set. I saw on one play where he had a chance to blow up the RB and he let up and the guy got an extra yard on the play. His nose for the ball is uncanny but he does not like to destroy players.

not saying he will spend his whole career outside, he will probably man the middle at some point i just don't expect it to be anytime soon. gross didn't assume the LT postion for quite awhile even though we drafted him to protect the qb's blind side

No doubt that Beason is the fire on the defense, the unquestioned leader when on the field. Luke seems more like the silent assassin. Quiet and unassuming, yet incredible awareness and savvy for seeing the gaps, anticipating the action, getting to the damn ball and wrapping up with the arms. Let's not forget the RB's who would make it to the second level last year kept bouncing off of shoulder shots from our secondary. This guy knows tackling fundamentals and that is refreshing.

Beason is the fire and Luke is the ice. Seeing these two on the field together will be awesome. Get well Beast!

Gross wasn't the best LT prospect to come out in a decade though......

I know what you mean, but his play will decrease his chances of getting hurt. As long as he can get to the ball we have plenty of other guys ready to do damage (Beason,Davis,Johnson,Hardy,Godfrey,Norman). I did see one nice lick he put on somebody wrapped up already.
