Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Finds himself in new role

Kuechly is expected to occupy one of the team's inside linebacker positions in Carolina's new 3-4 defensive scheme, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Since coming into the league, Kuechly has made at least 100 tackles in each season, primarily while playing middle linebacker, where he was allowed to roam freely and not forced to directly take on blockers. Kuechly is still expected to be one of the top IDP options in 2019, but don't be surprised if his numbers take a slight dip in his new role.
