Kevin Gemmell writes on ESPN's Pac-12 blog why Kendrick's maybe Bruins' "most important player" in 2014:
Kendricks has been one of the most productive tacklers in the league the last two seasons, leading the conference in tackles in 2012 and coming in third in 2013. It's just those same years, the Bruins happened to have a pretty good outside linebacker named Anthony Barrwho sacked the spotlight away from Kendricks.
As fate would have it, the Bruins have another rising outside linebacker -- who also does a little bit of work on offense and is getting a lot of the attention in the linebacker corps. But those who know Bruins football know what Kendricks is capable of. He's a veteran leader who quietly comes to work every day, turns in double-digit tackles, then comes back and does it again next week.
