We may want to consider:
1) A RB who will actually hold onto the ball...
2) A deep threat WR who actually wants to catch the ball...
3) A backup QB who can actually throw the ball...
...before we consider Manti Te'o...

It's also funny on a website that I respect a great amount that watches countless hours of game footage mentioned three linebackers as his winners and none of their name was Foote.
Focusing on Foote’s play yesterday is akin to worrying about a pimple when you’ve just been bitten by a Black Mamba. He may be an average linebacker, but it was the offense that was utterly and entirely useless yesterday. In reality, Batch, i.e., Methuselah, looked like he was throwing wiffle balls in a wind tunnel.
The fact that we were within 6 points at the end, in spite of our offense handing the opposition tremendous field position again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again, meant that our defensive effort yesterday was absolutely HUGE. We had ABSOLUTELY NO BUSINESS being in that game at all based on how pitiful our offense was, but our defense still somehow kept us in the game until the very end. Props to everyone on our defense (including Larry Foote, who had a tremendous strip of the ball from Richardson late in the game that everyone agrees should have been rule a fumble at a crucial stage of the game).
My post-combine mock draft:
1. NT Louis Nix, Notre Dame
2. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
3c. S Deone Bucannon, Washington State
4. OT James Hurst, North Carolina
5. WR Jeff Janis, Saginaw Valley State
5c. CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
6. DE Deandre Coleman, California
7. ILB Max Bullough, Michigan State
