Carolina Panthers Select Luke Kuechly

Apr 26 2012 03:30 PM Zod Carolina Panthers
LB - Boston College

Read & React: Intelligent player who knows his keys and "feels" his way to the ball. Aggressiveness allows him to be fooled by those keys, like pulling guards, on misdirection and takes a false step forward on play action, but also recovers well and regularly sniffs out reverses and other trick plays to prevent big gains. Run defense: Constantly around the ball, fights traffic easily and steps into gaps instead of waiting for the ballcarriers. Tracks the ball to either sideline but needs perfect angles to beat NFL tailbacks to perimeter. Anchors and can stick bigger backs with lowered pads. Doesn't have elite size to stand up to NFL-caliber linemen, but regularly rips off blocks with strong hands and can make

plays even if initially knocked backward

Summary: Luke Kuechly has been one of the most productive players in college football, at any position, over the past two seasons. He set ACC and school records for career tackle totals with 532 stops. Even without a bowl game in 2011, he made 191 tackles with 12 tackles for a loss, three passes broken up and three interceptions. In 2010, Kuechly had 183 tackles (110 solo) with 10.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and three interceptions.

Kuechly admittedly lacks special foot speed, but he makes up for it in instincts and intelligence. There is no doubt that he is a fabulous run defender who produces good down-and-distance situations for his defense. His read and reaction skills are top-notch. That allows him to get in position to make tackles near the line of scrimmage. Routinely, one would see Kuechly shed a block and make a tackle for a short gain.

Kuechly is extremely sound in pass defense. He does very well in zone coverage and is adept at reading quarterbacks' eyes. Kuechly has enough speed to get deep in his drops and cover more ground than one might think. While he was rarely called on to blitz, he showed some quality blitzing skills in limited opportunities.


Kuechly looks like one of the safest picks in the 2012 NFL Draft. He should be able to play immediately in the NFL, and before long, he could be one of the better run-defending linebackers in the NFL. Kuechly has the ability to play in a 4-3 or a 3-4 defense. Adding weight to help him fight off NFL blockers would be a good idea, especially if he were in a 3-4.

Draft guru Mike Mayock had Luke rated as the 6 overall player.


He said he was the best zone pass coverage LB he has ever seen. Thats high praise from a well respected guy.
People that b!tch about his size instantly lose credibility. He has ideal size for a 4-3 LB.

And as already pointed out, he is biggger than all of our previous starting 3.

LOL! Mayock is a notch above Kiper & McShay, but this board was all over Mayock for his comments on Cam before/after the draft. Now he praises a guy we have and the huddle loves him.

IIRC Myself and half the huddle had concerns about Cam but no one including Maycok denied the upside. I've always liked Mayock.

yep, Pat Willis is 6-1

I was thinking a 240 pound chemistry teacher.
watching his presser

all i could think is that he's the jewish version of brad pitt
He looks like Clark Kent.
I regret menstruating about this pick so much.

As much as I disagree with taking a 4-3 LB that high, Kuechly is a great player and I think he's going to be a monster for us.
I just watched Kuechly highlights for the first time. The guy wraps up on his tackles better than anyone I have seen. Looks very solid to me. I think we are going to love this guy.

Really good pick in my opinion, kid is smart, has a great personality and great ability/production. Drafting him allows them to use Thomas Davis as a situational pass rusher, which would be the same as us drafting a situational pass rusher in the first round, assuming Davis gets healthy, so all those crying we didn't improve our rush, yes we did, we drafted Thomas Davis to rush the passer in the first place, and this pick allows him to do that once again.
Haven't posted in a few years.

I am proud about our draft, cannot wait to see Luke Kuechly and Jon Beason on the field together. Cannot wait to see them punish our division rival's RBs.

And it seemed to me that both New Orleans and Atlanta had terrible drafts, which also brings me great pleasure.

We need a little luck at DT, but we have to have faith that Ron Edwards is going to reward us with 2 years of pent up football. And I think it is reasonable to assume that Sione or Terrell will come back stronger than they were as rookies. Their experience will help them as well. External to our DTs, we can expect the line to look better with a healthy LB squad behind them. There is logical reason to expect the defensive line as a unit will look better to us, even without adding new blood to the bench in the middle.

Bam, get you some, Rook!

This guy is going to allow us to some very creative things on defense. QB's are gonna be panicking. More blitzing from more unpredictable spots is just what the doctor ordered.

Dont forget about qb

Maybe not the best QB corps, but the best QB :cam:

Walter fuggin White...
Why is no one talking about Luke shaving points at Boston college. There was a special on Epsn last night. Why is he still being allowed to play football in Carolina? Jerry Richardson is a dirt bag.




















Doesn't matter if it's true or not just as long as enough people scream their misinformed opinion at you on how you should handle your business. Amirite?
