Luke Kuechly   #59 MLB

Height: 6-3   Weight: 238   Age: 27

Born: 4/20/1991 Cincinnati , OH

College: Boston College

Experience: 7th season

High School: Xavier HS [Cincinnati, OH]









Draft 2012

Pick No.9

Selected By: Carolina Panthers

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 9 (9)

Pick Analysis: Kuechly had one of the most productive careers, in terms of tackles, in recent memory for a collegiate linebacker. Twelve tackles for loss is a testament to his overall ability and instincts to get in the backfield. He is more of an athlete than given credit for and has simply been a machine throughout his college career. Kuechly has all the tools to be an immediate starter in the NFL and shore up the middle of a defense.
