More projections for Kuechly and other links

Considering he is a consensus first round pick, no one really seems to agree on where Luke Kuechly will go in the first round. This guy doesn't think Luke should go Top 15.


The Orlando Sentinel is starting a series on coaches on the hot seat. Guess who they feature first?


Former Eagle Brian Boyle is having a great playoff run.


Chris Kreider debuted with the Rangers and made a good first impression (considering it is the playoffs.)

Any report as to whether BC went after the Michigan recruit who just chose Maryland?

Keuchly is a combination of Junior Seau and Paul Posluszny. Keuchly is instinctive, reads the play, and goes to the ball like Seau. He is tough, smart, and respected by coaches like Posluszny.

The negatives on him are that he has not had to shed blockers and he has not had to cover NFLquality TE's(height, speed). He will be tested in training camp by the offense as to whether or not he can fight off blockers. He can cover straight downfield but he will have trouble with stop and go or post routes because teams will throw over the top on him.

I think he will be most successful on a team that has a very good defensive line. Green Bay, Houston, Detroit, Oakland would be good fits for his skill set. The Cowboys and Bengals may take him because of BC background and family background respectively.

If he drops in the draft it will be because of the position he plays and not because of his talent/abilities.

Who the hell is Josh Norris, and what does he know? Obviously not much. His credentials are having been an intern with an NFL team for one year... wow, he's such an expert!!

Knucklehead, you are right about the LB position. Not as highly coveted as it used to be.

Look at 2011 draft of LBs. Von Miller (superfreak athlete; game changer player) was #1, everyone else was much further down the draft

1. #2 (1st rnd)
2. #39 (2nd)
3. #40 (2nd)
4. #61 (2nd)
5. #66 (3rd)
6. #67 (3rd)
7. #68 (3rd)
8. #84 (3rd)
9. #91 (4th)
10. #99 (4th)

Much as we love Luke, he is not in the Von Miller category. He might drop even into round #2.
