The NFL announced its list of players selected to the All-Pro team today and three Panthers made the cut. center Ryan Kalil, linebacker Luke Kuechly, and fullback Mike Tolbert all were selected. All three of these men deserved the honor. It is especially nice to see Kalil make All-Pro one season after suffering a major injury that kept him out of most of the games last year.
This is Ryan Kalil’s second All-Pro award (2011 was his first). This will be the first time that Luke Kuechly and Mike Tolbert have made the All-Pro team. Considerably impressive is that Luke Kuechly is an All-Pro in only his second year in the league. I expect Luke Kuechly will have many more in his career (more than likely a nod every year). Get ready Panthers fans. This team has a talented young core established that should help propel this team into contender status for the foreseeable future.
