Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly knows all about Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, having faced him three times when Kuechly's Boston College Eagles faced N.C. State. Watching Wilson on tape this week reminded Kuechly of his college days.
"Chasing him around, that was the challenge," Kuechly said. "A lot of guys in college can run but can't throw or they can throw but can't run, he's a guy that can do it all. He can run, he can pass.
"He's a smart quarterback, too. He knows where he's going with the ball. That's how he was in college. He knew how to pick apart our defense at BC and he did that a couple of times. He's smart. Don't misconceive his size. He can get around and he can throw the ball."
