Luke Kuechly honing pass rush moves
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

NFL Defensive Player of the Year Luke Kuechly said he's working on his pass rushing moves.

"I just think that everybody's goal is to get better, and that's my goal," Kuechly told the team's website. "My personal goals are really to just get better at pass rush, working on some moves, working on counter-moves that will allow me to do some more things. I think last year I got stuck in a couple spots in pass rush and it led to big plays because they were counting on me getting there and I wasn't quite able to.

"Same thing with pass coverage. I was talking to Thomas (Davis) about it a little bit today and he said it's just you've got to be confident in what you're doing. The more reps I get at it, the more confident I'll get, the better I'll feel about it."

Kuechly, a 23-year-old linebacker, had 156 tackles, seven pass breakups, four interceptions and two sacks last year.
