I know he's gonna say this because it's his player, but good lord everyone saw the game. He was OBVIOUSLY exposed.

Just damage control as best as he can before the draft. BK is smarter than that...he's just paying lip service to the kid.

If he had 10 tackles in that game than I had 8 from my couch.
Manti not being exposed.
I think he can have a semi-decent career in the NFL, but I just shake my head when I see him still listed in mock drafts as a first round pick. Based purely off ability and performance, not hype, dude is a 3-4 round pick imo.
Not sure what the problem is with his comments...
Manti = Brian Bosworth
OK. Manti kept his pants on the whole game, so he wasn't exposed.
I agree with crisp. i think if he gets with the right team he'll do ok in the nfl. definitely isn't a 1st round guy and that what we exposed.
can he still play? sure. he was a good ILB for a couple years but WAY over hyped. the same thing happened to Tyron Matheu (sp?) he got so hyped up and wasn't even the best player in their secondary. i can't count the number of times i yelled that at my tv when the media built him up that year. and last year i was doing the same thing toward Manti. NDs DL was sick and he got all the credit for it because of his "tragedy" and "leadership". we'll see in a couple years how he turns out but i don't think he'll have a career good enough to have people forget about the hoax embarrassment.
He probably looks good over his college career because he played sub par teams. He was "Exposed" against a quality team. They can spin it all they want, watch the film of the Alabama game.
A guy on a phone exposed Manti for years..Eddie exposed him on the field. The guy is not bright and he is definitely not a 1st or 2nd rounder.
TJ Yeldon, a true freshman, made Manti look bad in the backfield on what should have been a negative play. Circle Button and M. Williams owned him. Enough said.
MT will likely have a very solid NFL career ... on special teams
smoke seen coming from the vatican as a new coach is approved. BK is an idiot. teo is slow and to soft to play big boy football. not an nfl player
Choose not a life of limitation
I personally don't believe he was exposed. I never thought he was that good.
If Brian Kelly really thinks that highly of him, then he should draft Manti in the 1st round.
Manti is actually so talented that he was attempting to tackle Eddie while laying on his back. That's a new technique that was developed by that barn LB with the Phyllis Diller hairdo (#5). Looks' like Manti hasn't quite got the hang of it yet.

Not exposed huh? He can't tackle, he is slow, no lateral quickness, he diagnoses plays a step slow, he over-pursues, can't shed blockers, can only play one position in one system, and he kills off imaginary girlfriends. Yep, sounds like a first round pick to me.
I completely agree, and have been saying so since watching all of Notre Dame's games. If I were a GM I wouldn't draft him in any round. I wouldn't want the guy on my team period.
With two 1st round picks, their propensity to draft Notre Dame players, and their gaping hole at the ILB position, I think there's a decent chance Minnesota may waste a first round pick on him. Minnesota is his best shot.
Average run-of-the-mill middle linebacker.
I haven't said much on this guy, but I can't see him playing in the NFL. Yes we have a bunch of kids that have the potential to play in the NFL. Yes, our players are as close as another team can get to playing an NFL team. But an NFL player is a much different animal than even our players. They're bigger, stronger, older, and most are tougher at that point in there career.
What we saw with Teo is this: He doesn't have enough straight ahead or side to side speed to play at the next level. How's his strength-see Warmack and company continually maul him and watch Lacy body slam him with the football in his off hand. And how many times was he in position to make a tackle and fell on his face? He would be in the hole, our back would make one cut, and he looked like a third grader trying to tackle Walter Payton. That tells me his hips/change of direction is not very good. That doesn't cut it in the NFL....
Sure, he looked like all world against the slower, weaker teams they played this year, but Alabama saved a smart GM some serious dough by exposing his football ability. All we hear out of the Notre Dame camp now is, "it was just one game". Well, the Super Bowl is just one game, too.............
I wish the kid well ,but he is average at best in terms of NFL potential. In his defense, when you have a powerful O-line like ours shredding their defensive front, there was not much he could have done !
somebody WILL take him in the first 3-4 rounds...
And that team will end up regretting it.
Like so many above, I don't think he's NFL-worthy, no matter how you spin it. At all.
You may be thinking of Chip Kelly.
this, CJ Mosley had comparable stats and better in some categories and didn't get any national press.
