KPL will be pursuing his dream in the NFL

US PRESSWIRE

With the 132nd pick of the NFL Draft in Round 4, the Seahawks have selected Boston College linebacker Kevin Pierre Louis. The four year starter for the Eagles, was consistently a contributor and looks to continue BC's growing roster of LB's in the NFL.


Kevin Pierre Louis came to Boston College as a four star linebacker and was recruited by Mike Siravo of Frank Spaziani's staff. He was ranked the 153rd recruit in the country. KPL battled some injuries with the Eagles, but when on the field he was one of BC's playmakers on defense. Playing Robin to Luke Kuechly's Batman, KPL finished 2011 with 74 tackles. With the Eagles he was a sure tackler, a steady force on the field, but not a player that was known for making many game changing plays.

Earlier we described Kevin Pierre Louis as:

Kevin Pierre-Louis is quick on his feet, exemplified by an outstanding combine workout. He can get up and down the field quickly, and is above average in diagnosing plays and shedding blocks. In terms of tackling KPL is again good (not great), and did well last year blowing up plays before they developed. One of his strongest suits is his intangibles, he is highly driven to succeed and learn, and is a leader on defense.  Todd McShay said that "Still developing as player (instincts, hands)," he tweeted. "But can contribute in NFL. If nothing else, can cover kicks right away".

Best of luck with the defending Super Bowl Champions!
