12. Kansas City Chiefs
Luke Kuechly*, ILB, Boston College
Bigger holes exist along the offensive line and at nose tackle, but Kuechly is clearly the best player on the board at this point. He would give new coach Romeo Crennel the kind of leadership and production Tedy Bruschi provided for the New England defenses Crennel coached in the early 2000s. Kuechly shows rare instincts and is a healthier version of current Cowboys standout Sean Lee.
