Quote:
When Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher retired, football lost two longtime standard-bearers at linebacker. While it would be somewhat simplistic to label someone "the next Urlacher/Lewis," I thought this would be a good opportunity to take a close look at one of the bright young stars at the position, someone under the age of 25 who has a chance to become one of the best of his era: Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers.

The reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year showed an incredible amount of promise in 2012, especially after he moved to the middle linebacker position in Week 5. He's received plenty of praise from his teammates, most notably from the man he replaced, veteran Jon Beason, who called Kuechly "the best in the league." With Kuechly on the field, the Panthers gave up 66 fewer points than they did in 2011. That might not seem like a significant difference -- until one considers that scoring was up across the league last season.

I'm glad other people think as highly of Kuechly as we do.
