2012 NFL Draft, Luke Kuechly

There's no question the linebacker would be a first-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft should he decide to forego his senior season. The only question is, how high in the first round?

It took just three seasons at Boston College for Luke Kuechly to set school and ACC career tackle records. There's no question the linebacker would be a first-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft should he decide to forego his senior season. The only question is: how high in the first round?

During a junior season that saw Kuechly break his own BC and ACC single-season tackle records, the linebacker earned the Butkus Award, Bronco Nagurski Trophy and Lombardi Award, among other honors. He recorded 191 tackles for the season (102 solo) and now has 532 tackles for his career.

The website Mocking The Draft has Kuechly rated as the No. 12 prospect in its 2012 NFL Prospect Rankings, and currently has Kuechly being selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in its 2012 NFL Mock Draft.

11. Philadelphia Eagles - Luke Kuechly, MLB, Boston College
It's time to buck some trends. The Eagles are a team that rarely takes linebackers this early in the draft, but Kuechly needs to be the exception. If the Eagles want their defense to succeed, they need a smart, sure tackler like Kuechly. He's the kind of player who could make everyone else around him look better by masking their deficiencies.
