Kuechly considered on "Ray Lewis level" by some evaluators

28 posts in this topic

Article is mainly about manti te'o and how he projects to the NFL but of course there are kuechly comparisons in here also, but this blurb caught my eye.

One agreement here from the evaluators is that while Kuechly might not have been the superior college player, he was a better prospect than Te'o. The Carolina Panthers rookie, they say, has better range, better top-end speed, more position flexibility, and even better instincts (Kuechly was considered on the Ray Lewis level there), in addition to being taller (Kuechly is 6-foot-3, 235 pounds; Te'o is 6-2, 255).

That's some high-ass praise if you ask me!

Luke has a chance to be a great MLB. Makes you wonder what will happen to Beason next year. Beason is a very good MLB but he's an average OLB.

Sure he does. He's a big big man. Did you see the picture of him next to the NC highschool linebacker that won the defensive player of the year for the Carolinas? He's like a foot taller than that kid.

no i didn't see that picture. i mean i can believe he's that tall, but just seeing pictures of him with his build, he looks like a regular guy who works out a lot.

I wonder if we can get Kuechly involved in the pass rush more. I know MLB isn't supposed to get the sacks, but he has so much talent and is so quick.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
