One of the Texans' greatest needs in the upcoming draft and during the offseason is at inside linebacker.

Star Brian Cushing will be back from his ACL injury, but the Texans need another starter — and depth at that position.

In fact, some experts have written along the lines: If you see a mock draft and it doesn't have the Texans selecting a linebacker in the first round, rip up the mock draft.

Might be a bit extreme, but you get the point.

Notre Dame's Manti Te'o is one of the best middle linebackers in the country.

BUT, Te'o also had one of the worst performances of his career in Notre Dame's blowout loss to Alabama in the national title game and, now, he is in the center of one of the most bizarre sports stories in recent memory.
