Luke Kuechly Scouting Report
Luke Kuechly - Boston College (HT: 6-3¼ - WT: 242)
Positives -- Unbelievable production in three years at BC, made 532 total tackles, declaring for the draft a year early yet just 13 tackles short of the FBS record... At one point in his career, had recorded double digit tackles in 33 consecutive games; holds the Boston College and ACC single-season
tackles record, which he set his sophomore year, then broke again his junior year, also broke the ACC career tackles record in just three years... Simply a ball hawk, always ends up near the play and finishes, has an incredible motor... Does not shy away from contact in any form, will take on blockers and wade through traffic at full speed to make a tackle... Has pretty good size for the position, looks like a good fit as a weak-side linebacker or on the inside in a 3-4... Is a cerebral linebacker, diagnoses plays very quickly and displays incredible instincts, shows great discipline and is rarely out of position... Wasn't perceived as the most athletic linebacker heading into the combine, but ran a 4.58-40 and ranked in the top five among linebackers in both the shuttle and three-cone drill; 38" vertical was third and 10'3" broad jump was fifth at the position... No durability issues to speak of, despite high motor and reckless abandon on the field... Has the potential to be a highly productive linebacker immediately in the NFL and his style of play would work best playing for a team with a very good defensive line... Winner of the Lombardi, Lott Impact, and Nagurski trophies as a junior.
Negatives -- Not a natural man-coverage backer, is not especially quick or agile with his back to the quarterback and isn't asked to cover a tight end or running back very often... Can get a little high at times when taking on blocks or forming up at the line of scrimmage, may have some difficulty taking down larger backs at the next level until he learns to play a little lower... On film, shows decent speed but is not a burner by any means, makes up for lack of elite straight line speed by always being in position... Not a natural pass rusher, rarely blitzes and lacks elite explosiveness when asked to rush the quarterback from the edge... Tackling numbers are out of this world but makes too many tackles after the runner has already picked up a good chunk of yardage... Isn't a downhill linebacker that will crash gaps and make plays at the line, his tackling numbers pile up by the amount of tackles he makes downfield... Kuechly is being touted by most as a first rounder because of his tackling numbers and incredible instincts but he doesn't appear to be anything more than an average athlete with below average strength on film.
