The Carolina Panthers have invested wisely in OLB Luke Kuechly. The former Boston College has already been deeply assimilated into the Panthers program. As it stands now, Kuechly will play weakside linebacker which will give him the opportunity to use his shiftiness and playmaking ability to the best of his ability. To read this story and watch video footage of Kuechly, please click the link below.

Luke Kuechly to see time at outside linebacker

CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- Luke Kuechly spent most of his prolific college career chasing down anyone holding a football from the middle linebacker position. He played some outside, but was mostly an iron-clad mainstay in the heart of Boston Colleges defense for three seasons. So when the Carolina Panthers selected him with the ninth overall pick in Aprils NFL draft, the question loomed...

Cam Newton resurrected the career of Steve Smith

When the Carolina Panthers drafted quarterback Cam Newton in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft wide receiver Steve Smith must have been at least a tad bit worried. Smith, a Panther since he was drafted in the third round, has seen 11 different quarterbacks since his rookie year in 2001. In his 11 NFL seasons he has had his ups and downs with the organization, but coming off...

Brandon LaFell is “heavy favorite” to be Panthers’ #2 receiver

According to Panthers insider Darin Gantt, Brandon LaFell is expected to be the Panthers #2 receiver once again in 2012 opposite Steve Smith. This makes a lot of sense since LaFell was solid in that role last season in his 2nd year in the NFL. There was some speculation that David Gettis could challenge for that job after coming back from a major injury suffered in 2011, but it appears...

Panthers may have a sleeper in Rico Wallace

One wide receiver that has a shot at sneaking up on the NFL this season is undrafted rookie wide receiver Rico Wallace, who was signed with the Carolina Panthers moments after the 2012 NFL draft ended. Wallace played for division III Shenandoah where he completely dominated the competition.  He racked up 3,287 receiving yards and 28 touchdowns during his collegiate career. I truly...

Adams hopes to add punch to Panthers return game

The Carolina Panthers have gone nearly a decade since they returned a punt for a touchdown in a regular season game. Enter rookie Joe Adams, who hopes to cure all of that. Adams was one of the premier punt returners in college football last season at Arkansas, returning four for touchdowns including one against Tennessee which has drawn more than 224,600 hits on You Tube. Adams...

Panthers will give top pick Kuechly a look at WLB

First-round draft pick Luke Kuechly has a new number and, at least for now, a new position with the Carolina Panthers. Before his first NFL practice, Kuechly was given No. 59 - the same number coach Ron Rivera wore during his nine seasons with the Chicago Bears - and told he'll start out playing weak side linebacker. That's a change from the middle linebacker spot he played...

Panthers hope to find diamond at minicamp

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Quarterback Jarrett Brown spent the past three days doing what he loves, dropping back and firing passes to wide receivers at the Carolina Panthers' rookie minicamp. It's an opportunity he or others like him wouldn't have had a year ago -- at least not with the Panthers. Because of the new collective bargaining agreement negotiated last year,...

NFL First Round Picks David Wilson and Luke Kuechly Agree To Contracts

The New York Giants signed running back David Wilson on Friday, while the Carolina Panthers locked up linebacker Luke Kuechly.  Both players were the first round draft picks for their respective teams last April. The two franchises joined Green Bay, Chicago, San Diego and Seattle as the teams who have agreed to a contract with their first round pick, according to ESPN. Kuechly...

Carolina Panthers sign every draft pick

Brought to you by: Sports Media 101 Just a day after inking ninth overall pick Luke Kuechly to a four-year deal, $12.58 million deal, the Carolina Panthers locked down their remaining six players in their 2012 draft class Friday morning. Under the collective bargaining agreement, all draft choices receive four-year deals. Second-round selection, offensive lineman Amini Silatolu...
