2012 NFL Mock Draft: Philadelphia Eagles Linked To Luke Kuechly, Again

NFL Draft pundits widely expect the Philadelphia Eagles to select a linebacker, and Luke Kuechly is the one prospect most prominently linked to Philadelphia.

In its latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft, SB Nation projected the Eagles to select Kuechly with the No. 15 pick.

Does Philly still call Juan Castillo their defensive coordinator? Amazing. It's the only coaching staff in pro sports that seems to have a tenure system. Chastened by the experience in 2011, they know they need to get a linebacker. Kuechly is the best of the bunch.

Kuechly is rated No. 12 among Mocking The Draft's Top 100 NFL Draft Prospects. The site describes Kuechly as an intelligent player with great instincts who stuffs the stat sheet despite a lack of superb athleticism.
