2013 BCS Championship: Te'o leads group of NFL prospects for Notre Dame

Jonathan Daniel

Manti Te'o is the number two NFL prospect in the 2013 BCS Championship Game according to NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks.

On Monday, January 7, the no. 1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish will take on the no. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide in the BCS National Championship. Three months after the game is over, a handful of the Fighting Irish's most talented prospects will be embarking on a new challenge: playing in the NFL.

NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks ranked the top ten pro prospects in the big game, with five Notre Dame members on the list. Manti Te'o was ranked number two overall, behind Alabama offensive lineman Chance Warmack. According to Brooks,

Te'o is another standout performance away from cementing his status as the top defensive prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft class.

Scouts Inc., meanwhile, has Te'o ranked as the seventh overall prospect in the 2013 draft class.

Other players on the NFL.com list include tight end Tyler Eifert (No. 4), defensive tackle Louis Nix (No. 6), defensive end Stephon Tuitt (No. 8) and running back Theo Riddick (No. 9). Eifert is also ranked on the Scouts Inc. Top 32 list at no. 31 overall.
