See this link from combine (interview)

This dude flew from Germany to USA when he was 14. Never played football. He went to schools and basically said "I am big and I want to play American football"

Raw talent. Interesting story. Obvious project!

Thanks Mike. Very interesting story. He obviously has a strong work ethic and is motivated.

LOL, I wanted him to say, "I'll be back"! [:P]

There's a 100% chance everyone will call him The Terminator in training camp.

Where's his gut? Don't DT's usually have big guts? The guy looks like a MLB. Looks like a freak athlete at DT. Cool pick for the 7th round.

I like " The German" because when he is on the roll we can say...The Germans are coming the Germans are coming!

HA! That will 100% be either a NY Post or NY Daily News back page headline if Kuhn ever actually does anything big in his career.

His successful blitzes can be called "blitzkrieg."

Watched a pre draft report on him. Sounded good except for the comment that despite his gym numbers, on the field his strength is "pedestrian" lol. Says he get's pushed around badly by double teams. But if he ever plays a down for us I doubt he's the one teams will be looking to double. I think he's gonna turn out to be one of those guys that just has a great motor.

They'll probably see if they can stash him on the practice squad for a year. I don't think any team would sign him to their Active-53 unless he pulls a "Cruz", and really kills it in preseason.

We gotta get a thread going. The Seawright thread was epic. I actually saw it referenced on Wikipedia or something similar once.

That along with calling Ernie Accorsi aka 'EA' an IMGRATE are two reasons I love this board.
