Kuechly rises on Kiper's latest Big Board

ESPN Insider Mel Kiper has published his latest Big Board, and Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly is now regarded as the nation's top interior linebacker.

It's Insider content, but I'll give you a sneak peek on Kiper's take:

Dependable, a tackling machine, he makes great reads, sees the play develop and sheds blockers well. Exceptional instincts.

No. 2 Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

No. 11 Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College (No. 14 last week)

No. 15, Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson

Maybe one day the ACC will have a quarterback on this list.
