Luke Kuechly Grabs Defensive MVP Award

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Carolina Panthers

In just his second season, linebacker Luke Kuechly has reached heights imaginable. The 6’3″ middle linebacker was voted the most valuable player defensively. Kuechly won by just 1.5 votes — just beating out Colts defensive end Robert Mathis.

Other men in the voting were safety Earl Thomas, defensive end Robert Quinn, cornerback Richard Sherman, and defensive lineman J.J. Watt.

Kuechly finished the 2013 season with 156 tackles, two sacks, and four interceptions. The most memorable of his games came in week 16 when Kuechly recorded 24 tackles and one interception in an effort to defeat the New Orleans Saints.

To say Kuechly does not deserve the award could very well be an understatement. In just his second season, Kuechly became a captain and instantly helped contribute as the defense finished as one of the best. Not many can step in and do the job Kuechly did so early in their career.

Congratulations Luke Kuechly!
