  Draft Scout by Conference

  Marcus Freeman watches Notre Dame sophomore tight end Michael Mayer strut onto the practice field every day and sees a rare chess piece for which he still hasn't devised an answer. He also sees a potential position switch worth fantasizing and salivating over. "I keep telling him, 'Man, come on to the dark side.'" the Irish first-year defensive coordinator said of his would-be defensive end project.

"I don't think (offensive coordinator) Tommy (Rees) is going to let that happen. God, he is a great football player. And the best part about it is we have to have him for two more years." The 6-foot-5, 251-pound Mayer actually doubled as an elite defensive end at Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Ky., racking up 99 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and four interceptions for a team that went 15-0 his senior season and 44-1 over his final three years, winning two Kentucky Class 5A state titles. "I think it was more of a personal decision on which one do I like more?" Mayer said of his ultimate college/pro position trajectory. "Which one do I have more fun with? Which one can I play in the league with? "I think I enjoy tight end a little bit more. I enjoy catching touchdowns more. Pancaking people. Running routes. Stuff like that. So I just decided if I'm going to pick this, let's stick with it, work with it and that's what I've been doing." - Indianapolis Star/News
