Once the Boston College football season ended, NFL scouting departments wanted to figure out exactly how good linebacker Luke Kuechly was.
Everyone had seen the eye-popping résumé. There were the 532 tackles in his career. He led college football in tackles each of the past two seasons. He was a two-time All-American. Kuechly won the Butkus (linebacker), Lombardi (lineman or linebacker), and Nagurski (defensive player) awards his final season.
