NEW YORK - Former University of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o was selected with the 38th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers and was the second Fighting Irish player taken in this year's draft.

"Manti Te'o is a once-in-a-generation type kid," Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly said. "I've not been associated with a better player, leader and man in my tenure as a college football coach. He possesses all the instincts and talents necessary to be a top-flight NFL linebacker and the San Diego Chargers are fortunate to add his services."
