Unless it's a QB I usually shy away from selling the farm for an unproven (at the pro level) player. Now a proven stud at a critical position on his second contract at the pro level is another story.

He is not only the best in the country at his position, but he has Tebow-like character. I love the guy, he is the Tebow of the defense.

He is the next Ray Lewis type player.

So what your saying is he's only good for one quarter a game?

Manti Te’o is the greatest defensive player the Fighting Irish have ever had.

From Alan Page and Luther Bradley, to Ross Browner, Bob Crable and Chris Zorich, generations of Domers have seen many stellar defensive players run out the famed tunnel at Notre Dame Stadium.

But after this evening’s Home Depot College Football Awards, no one is as decorated as the Irish’s senior linebacker from Laie, Hawaii.

Te’o picked up a trio of honors tonight, sweeping the awards he was a finalist for, and has earned six major postseason trophies this year. He has now surpassed Michigan’s Charles Woodson for the most ever in one season. In 1997, Woodson won five – the Bednarik Award, Nagurski Trophy, Jim Thorpe Award, Walter Camp Award, and Heisman Trophy.

He is a finalist for the Heisman Trophy (Saturday) and Lott IMPACT Trophy (Sunday). For now, here’s a look at Te’o's week so far:

Butkus Award
Nagurski Trophy
Lombardi Award
Walter Camp Award
Bednarik Award
Maxwell Award

You do not need to trade up to find a good LB. LB's can be found everywhere in the draft. The only position trading up for that would be worth while is a QB.

Bowman was selected in the late 3rd round, 27th pick.
Ray Lewis as the 26th pick.
Laurinaitis was 2nd round 3rd pick
Daryl Washington was 2nd round 15 pick

The list goes on.

I think Manti would be awesome on this team. But I cannot justify "selling the farm" for a MLB. It would fill a big need, but trading up for need is stupid. This staff has shown a willingness to be patient both in the draft and after with developing their players so they come along at the right pace. With the 32nd pick, it would be just too expensive to trade up for Manti. It's better if we take what falls to us and work off our board.

Since this thread was created it really has become more of a pipe dream then a reality. i honestly thought that he would be in the late teen-early twenties and depending on where we ended up we could get him. I honestly think he will go in the top ten now (especially without a slam dunk QB prospect) and whatever team gets him will have a franchise MLB for the next 15 years.

Now I am just trying to pimp my guy.

Te'o is good, but not as good as Kuechly, Urlacher, or Patrick Willis (9th, 9th, and 11th overall).

In some years, great 4-3 MLB's can be found in the 20's...like Ray Lewis and Jon Beason.

Normally, great NFL LB's (not just MLB's) register multiple 100+ tackle seasons in college. Other than Te'o, there are no ILB's like that in this year's draft.

Andrew Jackson is probably the best looking ILB prospect on the horizon (not named Te'o), but he's 260 lbs. and runs in the 4.7's (a little bit slow), and is only a Jr. for Western Kentucky.

We have DJ and Trevathan, who are both superb LB's.

I had Nfln on and was working around the house someone said I think it was Lombardi that while he was very instinctual MLB he did not think he would have the speed to go sideline to sideline that is required in the NFL.

Myslef I have not seen but snippets of his games so really have no first hand knowledge. Lombardi was a pretty extent GM in WAS. So I would think he has a clue.

Agree. (Love the 32nd pick reference). Hoping the kid doesn't win the Heisman as the majority are not the dominating force they were in college and not worthy of the #1 pick they usually become. Wishing him much success as the runner up because we as Bronco fans know how well they work out.

What we need to do is take the best Olineman left at the 32nd pick. Hopefully, that will be Barrett Jones.

This! Minter or Reddick will probably be around at our next pick.

I would take DJ Williams or Danny Trevathan at MLB over Minter or Reddick.

They have no tackles in college! How are they going to get tackles in the NFL?

I think he will be on the football field. Although Urlacher and Willis had freakier athletic ability coming out of college. I actually think Te'o will under-perform at the combine.

I said this was a weak MLB class for day one starters outside of Te'o in the draft forum..
Reddick, Minter, and Jackson are 3 players who could be great players with the right coaching, mentoring, studying, film room, and WANT.

I'm not sure why you'd rather have 2 undersized LBs play mike in base.. Or where you get this no tackles for Reddick or Minter..?

he's absolutely the safest pick as of right now if a team is selecting in the top 10.
