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.
