Notre Dame at Boston College: 5 Big Questions with Slap the Sign

4 of 5

2. Will Manti Te’o be the best player on the field on Saturday? If not him, then who?

STS: The short answer to this question is yes. However, there are two players that may be better down the road than Manti Te’o. These players are Stephon Tuitt (#7) and Louis Nix (#9). Both play along the defensive line. They do an excellent job at clogging the middle and putting pressure on the quarterback. Manti Te’o may have a lot of name recognition. He may even win the Heisman. He’ll probably be taken in the Top 15 of the NFL Draft. But these two players will project better in the next two years of their careers at Notre Dame and will eventually have lengthy and more successful NFL careers.
