ILBs do not go in the first unless they're absolutely, unquestionably, all world. There is no such guy in the 2012 draft class.
We'll probably have our choice between Burfict, Te'o, and maybe even Kuechly with our 2nd rounder.
Kuechly has been an unprecedented LB in college football over the past several years. He is easily one of the best players defensively and will play as long and be as productive as Brian Urlacher. No doubt. He plays every down with fire, passion and intensity. I have not seen someone this good in a very, very long time.
