2012 Profile

Manti Teo is a stud LB. Much like Vontaze Burfict at 6ft 2 255lbs he is big, physical, aggressive player came into college highly touted and has lived up to it and will be a coveted 1st rounder 3 years removed from high school. An ideal inside LB, Teo has great instincts, every game he usually blows up multiple plays behind the line of scrimmage. Especially strong in the run game because he has the athleticism (4.6ish 40 speed) to where you cant run away from him, and he is always around the ball. He is a smart guy on and off the field, grew up in Hawaii and has had a stand out career at Notre Dame which means he is experienced in hot and cold weather. The guys is just a football player, you could probably line him up at NT of FS and he will not hurt you. Very fine prospect, at 20yrs old he can start for 90% of NFL teams and you don’t see that much. Also, he gets good grades in the class room and will do well in character checks.

Negatives will have to be that he is not making a lot of plays in the passing game. He is almost too clean of a player for a ILB I think sometimes, he doesn’t force fumbles, or get interceptions. So there is definitely going to be a learning curve in the NFL because of how much passing is emphasized, but I would think that growing up in Hawaii he probably played a lot of 7 on 7 and so I think the skills in pass defense are there but he is more focused vs the run and getting to the QB. The way that he moves and aggressiveness show that he probably will be a zone cover guy and will be mismatched if he tries to cover rbs or TEs.

Manti continues to get better. Everyone will love him, from the fans, the GM, coach and D coordinator because of the way that he plays. Everyone loves a guy that is born to play ILB and does so with a passion. It shouldn’t be too difficult to play around his few weaknesses and allow him to flourish. My NFL comparison is Sean Weatherspoon.
