Chargers Pick Notre Dame's Manti Te'o in NFL Draft
Posted Friday, April 26th 2013 @ 1pm

Te’o finished second in Heisman Trophy voting by recording 101 tackles, seven interceptions and 1.5 sacks during his senior season at Notre Dame. His tremendous year earned him numerous accolades and honors including the Maxwell Trophy, the Dick Butkus Award, the Nagurski Award, the Lombardi Trophy and the Bednarik Award on his way to being named the Walter Camp National Player of the Year. He finished his illustrious four-year career ranking third all-time in Notre Dame history with 437 tackles, and was only the second player in the school’s history to post three consecutive 100-plus tackle seasons.

Manti Te'o attracted national attention when he became a victim of a so-called “catfishing” incident involving an online "girlfriend" who turned out to be a fake created by a prankster.
