2012 NFL Draft Results: BC ILB Luke Kuechly Selected By Carolina Panthers With 9th Pick

On Friday, the Carolina Panthers selected former Boston College Eagles inside linebacker Luke Kuechly with the ninth overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. Kuechly is the eighth-rated prospect in the draft and the No. 1 inside linebacker, according to Mocking The Draft's rankings

Here's what Mocking the Draft had to say about Kuechly prior to the draft:

Final word: At the college level, Kuechly is arguably the most accomplished player in this year's draft. An All-American each of his three seasons at Boston College, Kuechly led the nation in tackles as a sophomore and junior. He's instinctual and will be able to contribute immediately as a rookie. His upside, though, is limited because he's not the strongest or a natural athlete.
