Best NFL Players Under 23 Per CBS

Recommended Posts

http://www.cbssports.com/general/blog/pete-prisco/22230397/the-nfls-best-players-under-the-age-of-23

Per CBS Sports' Pete Prisco, Luke Kuechly is #2:

 

2. Luke Kuechly, ILB, Carolina Panthers -- He led the NFL in tackles as a rookie. That's impressive. He was all over the field and did so without the help of good down tackles in front of him.

 

 

Not bad but I think he should be #1 but that's not being a homer or anything. Glad he is getting the recognition he deserves.

Would have to agree with you on that one, Kuechly should be number one.

 

Peterson is a good player, but there's nothing about him that screams amazing to me. Luke has that "wow", "amazing" factor.

peterson is one of the best cover corners in the league? where do people get this idea?

 

He must have improved by leaps and bounds since the last time I watched him :unsure:

I guess it's a respect thing. Peterson has been in the league two years and he is solid. Luke looked like a mad man at times last year a freaking star. Writers are always careful not to jump the gun when evaluating talent. They usually want to see duplication and steady improvement before the get crowned.

But fuugggg him......

King Luke will rule the NFC South this year...

Last time I actually watched Peterson he was returning a punt for a TD against us in the 11 opener. Haven't seen a single tackle, pick, or pass defensed since.

Do not want

Wait... What are we talking about again?

That means diddy squat. He wasn't drafted fifth overall for STs. Peterson was drafted that high to be a shutdown corner. In two seasons, Patrick hasn't accomplished that. Both Champ and Revis made an impact in their sophomore seasons, what's Peterson's excuse? He had lousy performances against Seattle, San Francisco, Green Bay, St. Louis, Atlanta and Chicago.

 

Yep, and you didn't even mention Richard Sherman, a fifth round pick from Peterson's draft class. So far he's been a great STer, but he's been just solid from a CB perspective. 

 

I really wouldn't think Luke would be that high on a list of the top guys under 23 (guess I thought Luck and Griffin were younger), but PP is the only one they put above him? Peterson has had some nice punt returns and is flashier, but I think Luke definitely has a case for number 1.
