Luke KuechlyLinebacker | Boston College
Luke Kuechly's unassuming demeanor is a stark contrast to his on-field relentlessness, as he led the nation in tackles (183) and solo stops (110) as a sophomore. He was a unanimous All-American last year, and has had 10 or more tackles in 22 straight games -- the longest active streak in the nation. He reached 200 career tackles faster than any other player in school history and became the first player in the program's history to record 300 tackles in his first two seasons. Last year he also had three interceptions, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
