Manti almost won the Heisman trophy this year because he shut down elite teams like Oklahoma and Stanford and had more interceptions than I can count.

The Eagles desperately need help on the defensive side of the ball, so do not be surprised if the Eagles think long and hard about drafting an elite defensive player like Te'o.
