Mel Kiper on Sport Center debating with Todd McShay and Colin Cowherd on greatest physical freak.  Wish I could find the video.

I love Keek, and he's arguably the best MLB right now, but I've never really thought of him as a physical freak...  

 

He's more of a combo of athleticism and football acumen to me...

I love Kuechly, he's a great LB with great instincts and athleticism. But, he is not that good at blitzing, in order to be a freak at LB I think that's a requirement.

I think you guys underestimate how much of a "freak" Keek is. Do you see how fast he can get sideline to sideline? It is an extreme rarity to get a player that cerebral and that athletic in one package. He doesn't look the part of an "athletic freak" because most "athletic freaks" are monsters. Keek is the silent assassin, his play speaks for itself.

Honestly, Tolbert may be more of a "freak" than any of them.  Someone with his wise and build should not be as fast and agile as him.  He's made some catches that WRs would have dropped.

yeah I like the positive attention to anyone on our team but Kuechly isn't even the most freakish athlete on that side of the ball.

 

Maybe if they mean "freak" to be the ridiculous combination of skillsets / abilities that Kuechly has I can get behind it.

 

Meh - no reason to bitch about positive attention I guess.  Just let it flow.

Darin Gantt most accurately described Thomas Davis IMO....he is too quick and powerful for his body to handle it.

Davis IMO is the most physically talented LB in Panther history.

Luke has has great physical talent....but his instincts and film work make his game special along with the physics aspect

Patrick Willis often gets talked about as being one of the freakiest and his combine had a lot to do with that. Certainly one of the freakiest combine performance for a MLB.

Luke has basically the same or better combine and you don't hear anything about it.

Keek's athleticism is definitely underrated. You look at his combine numbers and they are pretty much ideal across the board for a 4-3 MLB. But, a freak? Not so sure about that. Guys like Cam, Peppers, Dontari Poe, Vernon Davis, Patrick Willis... those are freaks. Those guys have size/speed combos that just don't happen.
