Charlotte, NC – On Thursday, May 10, the Carolina Panthers reached an agreement with first-round draft choice Luke Kuechly on the eve of the team’s rookie minicamp.

Kuechly, the former Boston College linebacker who is the NCAA’s all-time leading tackler, agreed to a four-year contract worth $12.58 million, all of it guaranteed, according to a league source.  He was the ninth overall pick in last month’s draft, and at this time is the highest draft pick to agree to terms.

Luke Kuechly will be in the Panthers' Rookie Minicamp this weekend in Charlotte

A 6-3, 242-pound native of Cincinnati, Kuechly averaged 15.9 tackles last season and 14.0 tackles over his three-year career, both NCAA records.

The Panthers will have 58 players in town this weekend for the rookie minicamp.  The camp includes their 7 draft picks, 12 undrafted free agents, 7 players under contract with less than one year of NFL service time, and 32 players trying out.

Here are the 58 players who will be in Charlotte this weekend:
