Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
Grade: 6.9 (Grading Scale)
Film Room Notes: vs Florida State
Strengths: As instinctive as they come, makes almost every play on the field – Pursues the ball sideline to sideline and is a sound fundamental tackler – Rarely makes a mistake on the field and if he does makes up for it with his constant effort – Sound in pass coverage (played safety in HS) – Good lateral mobility – Keeps his eyes on the QB and truts his reads – Very good size for a middle linebacker – One of the smartest players in the country – Kuechly is like a coach on the field, knows everyones job – Future defensive playcaller and captain – Current team captain and leader.
Weaknesses: Not the best athlete – Can get fooled at times by misdirection – Needs to add 10-15 pounds to his frame -Questions about if he can handle playing inside at the next level.
