NFL Draft 2012, Luke Kuechly: Another Mock Ties Boston College Linebacker To Kansas City

With the first round of the NFL draft now just two weeks away, the future of Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly is becoming increasingly clearer by the day. The consensus from most draftniks is that he'll wind up in the top half of the first round, it is simply a matter of which team will select the nation's leader tackler in 2011.

ESPN's Todd McShay has released his latest mock draft, and in it he projects Kuechly to land with the Kansas City Chiefs, a conclusion to his draft fortune that many others share.

McShay describes the addition of Kuechly in Kansas City as a "slam dunk," and believes that he and Derrick Johsnon would immediately form one of the top pairs of 3-4 inside linebackers in the league.

And while McShay ultimately feels he'll end up with the Chiefs, he doesn't rule out Miami, Buffalo, Seattle, or even Philadelphia as potential landing spots for Kuechly as well.
