I'd rather Manti Te'o be the MLB of the future for the Denver Broncos. 49 tackles, 6 for loss and four sacks already this college football season. I have no doubts that he will man the MIKE position for the team that drafts him for a decade.

After watching the ND Air Force game yesterday I am on the Te'o bandwagon. Great speed, good instincts, didn't miss tackles. The option offense that Air Force runs gives the MLB plenty of opportunities to make plays. It was fun to watch him out there.
