    Manti Teo

    Teo will be returning to school.....after the year burfict had,I expect the same out of him.....We've all been hoping for Kuechly,what would we do if he doesn't declare for the draft? That would leave Zach Brown as the only 1st round worthy LB.....
    after this season ,idk how for one second anyone can assume our LBs will all asudden become elite....
    We actually need two LBs,even when healthy Goff was average at best & he's going to be a that's straight off IR....& we literally have no SLB.....

    While Kuechly is a great prospect, Zach Brown's athleticism and potential seem too much to pass up. Besides Kuechly will be gone when we pick.

    I think right now the lb corps is best described as a question mark.

    The rookies all showed flashes. However, given the lack of veteran leadership back there, the absurd amount of turnover on the defense this year, and the complete lack of a preseason make evaluating them problematic.

    Likewise, Goff and Sintim were both looking very good this preseason, but how/if they come back OS an unknown.

    Regardless of if we want to assign a positive, negative, or neutral connotation to those questions, its the coaches and front office who get to see the tools every day, and are watching the various rehabs. They know FAR better than we what the future looks like.

I've seen at least 3-4 BC games this yr and each one I'm left drewling over Kuechly!!lol Hes sensational! hes the full package! I'd much rather have Kuechly over Brown albeit Brown is also a very good LB who i'd be fine with selecting As u said though Kuechly will be long gone Hes not gonna make it to pick 15 mark it down!

    I believe jwilliams will be our starter next yr opp side of boley. Hes done ok for a rookie, and we all cried for rookies to get their shot, he got it n i believe they move fwd with him as their starter. mlb is a huge ? but i wldnt be surprised if JR stubbornesssticks with herz goff n jones. opting not to pick a mlb 1st rd. i havent seen enough of herzlich to give a fair assessment. I think DB is much more of a pressing need, planning for the future

    Now that the season's over I've finally got to really watch Kuechly and I too am just amazed by his play. He is obviously not on Brown's level of athleticism but he is actually a very good athlete. Not to mention he is just a natural. Right now he is my number 1 target in the first.

Time to weed out the guys who've been around for 3straight collaspses(if we fully collapse) They just lost there hunger after that SB or something! I've never seen anything like it! There basically invisiible 90pct of the time!
