Manti Te'o is one of 15 "players to watch" for the Walter Camp Football Foundation's player-of-the-year award.

Notre Dame's senior linebacker is one of just two defensive players on the list, joining Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones.

Jones has 56 tackles, 10.5 sacks and five forced fumbles, while Te'o has 92 tackles and six interceptions.

I know Notre Dame fans don't want to envision it, but imagine if those two were playing alongside each other on the same defense? (Te'o was all but set to commit to USC, while Jones used to play there.)

The Trojans, by the way, are the only team with two players on the list, in quarterback Matt Barkley and receiver Marqise Lee; the Irish will face them next week.

Quarterback Collin Klein and running back Kenjon Barner, from No. 1 Kansas State and No. 2 Oregon, are also on the list.

Five finalists will be announced Nov. 28, with the winner being announced during the 6 p.m. ET edition of "SportsCenter" on Dec. 6.
