Notre Dame

#5 ILB Manti Te’o, Sr – 6-2, 245 pounds, 4.54 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 1st-round potential.

The Hawaii native has become one of the best defensive players in Fighting Irish football history and he shocked Notre Dame fans earlier this year when he decided not to leave school a year early and came back for his senior season. He spent the last few months getting into “the best shape of my life” and dropping 10 pounds down to 245.The 21-year old inside linebacker has played in 38 games, with 36 starts. Te’o has 324 total tackles, 28.5 tackles for loss, 7 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. He ranks No. 8 in career tackles at South Bend. Last season, he started all 13 games with 128 total tackles and earned second-team All-America honors. He was named this past week as one of four captains for the Irish this season, the selection made by head coach Brian Kelly. Born and raised in Honolulu, Te’o was one of the most highly recruited players to ever come out of Hawaii.
