05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Seahawks' picks: Round 4/132 -- Kevin Pierre-Louis, OLB, 6-0, 232, Boston College...Pierre-Louis played both on the strong and weak side at BC but will start out at weak-side linebacker for the Seahawks. Will likely have to make his way initially on special teams. - The Sports Xchange

04/29/2014 - Five players who should be on Chicago's draft radar: OLB Kevin Pierre-Louis, Boston College: Chicago wants to add speed, speed and more speed on defense and Pierre-Louis might be the fastest linebacker in the draft. At the NFL combine, he produced head-turning numbers in the 40-yard dash (4.51), 10-yard split (1.56), vertical jump (39 inches), 3-cone drill (6.92) and even the bench press (28 reps). And Pierre-Louis' production and tape on the field are impressive too. He has some linebacker/safety tweener traits with his slender frame, but moves very well with the athleticism to cover a large area. Pierre-Louis has trouble disengaging and needs to stay healthy at the pro level, but he is a sound tackler with NFL smarts, projecting him as a rangy run-and-chase WILL linebacker and possible down-the-road starter for Chicago. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
