No. 9 Carolina Panthers: ILB Luke Kuechly, Boston College –- Kuechly (pronounced KEEK-lee) led the nation in tackles in each of the past two seasons, with a career-high 191 last year alone. He finished his Boston College career as the leading tackler in both school and Atlantic Coast Conference history (532 tackles).
