After all the speculation and despite plenty of trades coming in the first round, Luke Kuechly ended up as a Top 10 pick. The Carolina Panthers selected him with the 9th pick overall. Kuechly is the 10th Eagle to have been selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in the last 13 years.
Congratulations to Luke, his family and the BC football program. Now he'll get to square off against Matt Ryan twice a year, every year.
Here is the Carolina leadership talking about him and their expectations. The Draft continues over the weekend and we can hope that Donnie Fletcher joins Kuechly as a BC draftee.
