08:22 AM ET 10.03 | Though his season has seen great personal loss off the field, Manti Te'o's decision to return to South Bend has been a good one for his career. [His] NFL Draft profile has never been more impressive. "There's no question Manti Te'o coming back is turning out to be absolutely the right decision from a business standpoint," said draft analyst Scott Wright of draftcountdown.com. "There's certainly a ceiling how high any inside linebacker can go in the draft, but last year he would have been competing with Luke Kuechly and Dont'a Hightower. This year he's clearly the cream of the crop at his position, with a likely range of 10 to 20 in the first round." Last December, Te'o projected anywhere from the middle of the first round to early second.

I'm looking forward to this game to really get a good look at what the Canes O have against a reasonably proven D.

Te'o has played very well this yr. I wish him all the best!

But do we really need to talk about draft stock with so many games to play?
